"Of all the poetic forms I find haiku the most appealing. Through ther deceptive simplicity one can share moments of absolute awarness, of thruth, of images, of depths and heights of the spirit which transcend time, place and cultures and continents -- bringing about universal peace and understanding. I believe that if more people turn to writing haiku, there would be more joy and less strife in our lifes, in our world. "

Following the developpement of a life-threatening illness, Indian ophtalmologist, Angelee Deodhar turned to writing as a lifetime and second career. Dr Deodhar was born just before the partition of India and schooled in the best "English' tradition. Her home in the foothils of the Himalaya was filled with books and music and even during medical school she wrote short stories, articles and poems. It was not, however; until she developed a recurrent pulmonary thromboembolism necessitating repeated prolonged hospitalizations that she developped a passion for poetry, especially haiku. She has produced award-winning poems which have been published in the USA, the UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, Croatia, Romania, Finland, Poland, and India.
