Kaavya Dhaara

Kaavya Dhaara

HLF introduces a new full fledged stream exclusively for poetry from this year onwards. This will give the rightful space to this significant genre of literature. Poets from diverse backgrounds, languages and ages will participate in reciting and/or performing their poems. Young and old, senior and budding, local, national and international poets will present a vivid bouquet of poems in Chinese, Gujarati, Hindustani, Telugu, Urdu and English.  This stream brings in close to 10 hours of poetry reading and rendering as well as a unique poetry installation.

While we all love to curl up on the couch with a substantial book of poetry and a warm cup of tea, one of the best ways to experience poetry is go out and meet fellow writers and readers in a Hindi poetry/Urdu mushaira session. The Writers Hub is coming up with “Modern Day Mushaira”, a poetical event where old-world charm meets contemporary allure to create realms of subtle profound wisdom. Talented young writers of Lucknow are going to showcase their talent through poems on a range of subjects.
