Bhopal Poetry Meet
25th January was an important date for P4poetry.....we had our first poetry meet outside Mumbai at Bhopal organized by the Bhopal P4poetry members.And we are extremely proud of them because they organized it so professionally with a compere.
Neeraj Guru and Arvind Kharbanda ! You need a big pat at the back .You were awesome !!!!
It was organized at Cafe Rendevous which has a special room for Art activities like poetry,theatre,discussions etc and despite 6 poetry meets in the city the same evening( a weeklong kala aayojan had kickstarted the same day ) we got approximately 15 people who attended the show. Raj and I were fortunate enough to attend the poetry meet and we familiarized everybody with the latest exciting happenings at P4poetry.
Arvind's ghazal renditions were easy on the ears( we didnt have to refer to dictionaries ! ) and deep on the meanings; Neeraj Guru's social cause poems made you ponder ; Anita Dwivedi's poems were inspiring on the language and flow evoking beautiful visual imageries; Cheema's poems were sweet and tender and Mr Dwivedi's two liners were witty and spontaneous.
The group is so enthused now that they planned to meet up again on Friday over a candlelit dinner and will do atleast a monthly meet.
Way to go !!!
