ARE you among those in India's literati who write,
love and care for the promotion of poetry in all of India's languages, in all
of India's regions, in all of India's creeds and classes ?
If yes, you cannot do better than join the Poetry
Society (India). All these are the Society's prime concerns and it has
attempted to meet these in an organised way.
The Society has so far organized many poetry
conferences, readings and workshops and in future proposes to continue doing
so. The society has arranged several All-India Poetry Competitions, in
collaboration with the British Council Division
of the British High Commission in Delhi. It has also arranged the
All-India Poetry Competition for School Children in collaboration with the
Ministry of Human Resources, Government of India.
In addition it ahs been arranging creative writing
workshops for the young poets writing in their mother tongue. They were
arranged in many states states including Orissa, Karnatka, Madhya Pradesh ,
Jammu & Kashmir, West Bengal, Punjab, Rajasthan and Haryana.
The poetry society brings it journal out regularly,
in which poems and critical articles are published not only by and for the Society’s Members but from and for poets
everywhere in the county. Each member gets the few copy of the journal. The
society has not yet started regular book publishing, which requests funds and
organization yet not available with it, but it provides advice on publishing
and related subjects.
The Poetry Society was launched in summer of 1984 .
It has in general attempted to spread an awareness of tradition and collective
as well as personal identity, for it is axiomatic that a Societies and
Cultural Institutions and values follow from such awareness.
So we invite you to join the poetry society (
India). The cost is minimum, the fruits and satisfaction thereof immense. As
the ancient poet Vallana said.
What delight is when the soul of what one says
Appears not in the words themselves
But in the way the words are put together,
This rather than a flavour that is obvious….
