Andoumboulou / Vorfreude - A ShabdAaweg Anthology
We are so engaged in doing things to achieve purpose of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.
- Joseph Campbell
We read and saw how you folded the words Andoumboulou and Vorfreude in your stories and poems. We could see the many windows and the colours which you trapped in the pages. While we read, we got a glimpse of your inner life. It’s a meditation to be a writer and a poet and through your words we could feel that energy, that warmth from your part of the land.
Thanks a lot for sharing the beauty of your words with us. And thank you Lubna Yusuf for your prized illustrations, which do a commendable job of complementing the individual pieces.
