and preserving the traditional arts and culture, has initiated this program in
order to provide a platform for the poets of Kashmir.

In the opening section, poets shared their views on the importance of our mother
tongue (Kashmiri) and its preservation. Then the poetry session was conducted
in which the poets presented their work and filled the environ with aesthetic
aura. Their poetry encompassed various themes – spirituality, humour, love,
celebration, nature, beauty, life, dreams etc. The traditional Kashmiri drink
Kehwa was served to the guests which gave them a rejuvenating feel.

The guests also visited our gallery, which is housing the old artefacts and
manuscripts. They all got fascinated by our great collection and preservation of
the rich heritage of Kashmir.
