Poetry Competition and Recitation


As soon as the Inaugural session of MiRAAS 2013 ended, the gathering had to find its way in different directions of the premises of the University. In a while, various competitions had begun at different venues. Literature is an important part of a culture; so is the Literary Club, as a part of the Cultural Committee of the University. At a venue near the Library, the student hub, Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution, triggered the Literary Fiesta. The Students' Seminar and the trilingual On The Spot Poetry Composition-Recitation competition started simultaneously at 11.30 am.

The organisers had devised an interesting way to inspire participants into writing their poetry. The judges for the event, Kausar Mazhari (for Urdu), Indu Virendra (for Hindi) and Baran Farooqui (for English), also found the idea of putting up pictures, clicked by fellow students (Akanksha Srivastav and Belal Khalique), innovative.

It was a well attended event with participants from Kirorimal College, Ramlal Anand College, B.R.Ambedkar College, Atmaram Sanatan Dharma College, P.G.D.A.V., Jawaharlal Nehru University, Amity Institute of Physiotherapy, Jamia Hamdard, A.B.E.S.Engineering College and from the host University as well. The lot of budding poets was unbelievably imaginative and powerful, in both, their composition and its recitation.
