[Consald-l] News to share

Aug
27

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing this email to let you all know that I have decided to
retire in December 2010. I love my job and wouldn't know what else
could I have worked as if not a librarian! So you may wonder why I would
decide on retiring now. The only thing I can say for sure is that it
feels like the right thing to do. :-D
Life has been a process of continuous learning and it won't cease
teaching me even after I retire. I feel privileged to be able to learn
from all of you. Thank you all. I will see you all in Madison and engage
in any brain storming needed at the two meetings.

Best,
Bindu

Re: [Consald-l] Reference Question

Dear Deepa,

Before you go to British Library with a request, you may want to look at:

"The Peacock Lute: anthology of poems in English by Indian writers"

It is a 1945 publication and several libraries hold this book, including
Columbia.

http://clio.cul.columbia.edu:7018/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=469538

I vaguely remember seeing Prasanna Kumar De's poems in this anthology.

It is also microfilmed by SAMP
