While Houston skies continue to heat up, let's do something little Cool and Calm - indoors :-) Calling out all the poets (or those with love for poetry) in the group...

 

Lets get together to recite and then have an informal discussion about your OWN (preferred) or a poem of your choice. We will keep the author anonymous so that we can have an unbiased discussion (we can reveal the names later). Remember, only poems, no Bollywood songs :)

 

Theme: Any

Language: Hindi / Urdu / English (as long as you can explain the meaning and the essence)

Poet: Yourself / Your favorite

Tone of the poem: Any (Serious/ humorous / neutral)

 

Address will be sent out on Friday morning. Its a small gathering and the space is limited, please RSVP ONLY if you are 100% sure! Please put the name of the poem next to your name in the comments section by July 3rd else your RSVP will be cancelled.


Food: This will be a snacks potluck. Get your choice of snacks and soft drinks. Snacks enough for 4-5 people only.

Important: Please update your contribution by clicking here here by July 3rd.

    This was definitely worth my time. I enjoyed all the poems and stories. Just by listening to everyone I've started learning so much about Indian culture.

    Reemphasizing: Please don't get too much food/drinks. We often end up wasting food. Mutually Agreed Rule: Anything excess will have to go back with the person bringing it :-)
