\"Words are but costumed actors on the pages; A poet is but the director of the stage While the readers remain the real producers who never age. A poet is a word player who empties out her self To empower the readers to become the producers Of a world full of meandering meanings. A poet\'s word play is an enactment of her emptied entity That she changes like the skin of a snake Before embarking upon enlisting a world that she likes to see.\" Acknowledgements: For their encouragement, I would like to thank all the members of the blog poetryandwriting.activeboard; these fellow poets from the virtual world made me realize that my words were finally ready for a print version. I owe a special debt of thanks to Prof. Syed Manzoorul Islam for having immense faith in me, and for convincing me that this book could be published. I am grateful, too, to Poet Kaiser Haq for endorsing my debut attempt. Thanks also to Prof. Fakrul Alam for his critical sense of how creativity should be approached. It is a pleasure to be able to thank Meher Nigar Jerin for coming up with the brilliant cover design. This book wouldn\'t have seen the light of day without the warm cooperation of Mr. Zakir of Adorn Publishers; my heartfelt thanks. My family has been a constant source of support; I won\'t belittle their love and affection with any formal thanks.
