Comments about Mamta Agarwal

I am greatly impressed by the comments of fellow poets about the poetry of Mamta Agarwal. I have read a couple of poems written by her including 'Celebrating Women's Day' and felt the intensity of her expression along with her social commitment. Her profile as a freelance writer is again very inspiring. I hope she is fine and starts posting her poems again (after a gap of more than six years now) .

Ms Agarwal's poem Controlling Anger Before It Controls You was exactly what I was looking for: something to remind me everyday and remain in the back of mind when a situation arises.
