I have received all the 35 entries for the contest.
I have started reading the poems. I am amazed to find that nearly half of the entries are not on the theme of LOVE.

I will be judging and declaring the results on 5-11-11. Anyone who wants to change their entries are welcome. But please let me know the change you make.

    I'm afraid I am one, who did not see the "love" part of your requirements. Sorry, Dr. Ram, I will edit soon. Thanks for another opportunity!
