Harkat@Sarai 3: An Evening of Sufi Poetry
The medium is words, and your presence. The challenge is to recite a not-your-own-poem or not-your-own-couplet from this genre called Sufi poetry. Language is not a barrier. One can read a poem in any chosen position, say, facing the wall, being supine, head upside down, or any other strangest ideas that may enhance the beauty and understanding of a particular verse.
An evening of performances by-
Aishwarya Sultania, Amitabh Pandey, Anil Dayanand, Bhuvesh Kumar, Inder Salim , Kaushal Sonkar ,Navtej Johar, Neha Choksi, Neha Tickoo, Pari Baishya, Vivek Raina .
