I am greatly honored to have been a guest at this one of the largest Japanese poetry events in India.

I was able to perform my 100th bilingual tanka reading in the international poetry events in India, which is the country I visit for the first time in my life.

Being mindful to stay healty, I would like to continue taking small steps to move forward frome now on.
