Santosh Kumar

Dr. Santosh Kumar (b. 1946)
is a poet, short-story writer and an editor from UP India; DPhil in English; Chief Editor of an international literary journal Taj Mahal Review; several awards; member of World Poets Society (W.P.S.); member of World Haiku Association, Japan;

He has also edited sixteen World Poetry Anthologies, and four books of World’s Great Short Stories. He is also the author of a collection of poems entitled Helicon (Cyberwit, 2006, India).


Dr. Santosh Kumar has successfully shown that he has both a good understanding of the classical form and literary history of the haiku as an art form, and more importantly possesses the literary experience, expertise, sensitivity and dexterity required to update and further develop this classical art form in his own way – thus both ensnaring and enticing the reader to join him in his own contemporary pas de deux, expressive of the wonders and dilemmas of today's social, spiritual and psychological experience.

This resonance in the reader/audience, together with the "magic" of boundless possibilities, is essential to the success and the survival of the artist's expression as a "living, and ever changing" organism.
