About the Event

Poetry is a part of literature and fine arts that uses rhythmic and aesthetic qualities of the language, in order to appeal to one's finer senses. It is at the core of any culture and is a powerful form of arts. Poems have a profound effect on human minds and are known to change lives, as they transform the way one looks at the world around them. Poems can bring out emotions that are long lost or deeply hidden inside a person. Thus, poetry is important as it opens up possibilities to explore one's mind, make one wonder, while use language in a beautiful manner and enrich the culture. This session aims at taking you closer to the lives of historic poets, who hailed from the land we call 'Delhi'.
