    Melvyn Baab,

    Congratulations on your successful poetic carrier and hard work that you have shown in last twenty plus years. I wonder how you manage so many activities and not once complained about anyone or anything.

    You have been blessed with skills and talents of a great poet. Sometime, it takes me more than one or two reading to understand your thoughts, background, and intended message based on skillful words in your poems. It is beautiful and much appreciated.

    Along with your own poems, you have shown leadership to teach and train hundreds of other young and old poets through Kavita Trust with the help of several friends and trust committee members.

    We pray for further success to you and looking forward to read each and every collection of your poems.
