Kavi Sammelan 2018

Fits of laughter and moments of tranquility seen during kavi sammelan in Graphic Era University

Hum apnay jaan ke dushman ko apni jaan kehte hain…

Dehradun, 15th April: A unique style of satire and humour mesmerized the audience during 16th kavi sammelan organized in Graphic Era University. The poet’s lines were full of patriotism that also raised some of the burning issues of the society. Amongst all this the audience was often seen in fits of laughter and later in a somber mood. The entire canopy echoed with the sound of claps and uproar. On this occasion, renowned poet, Dr Rahat Indori was awarded with cash prize of rupees one lakh and bestowed with the title of ‘Graphic Era Kavya Gaurav Samman’.

President, Graphic Era Educational Group, Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Ghanshala inaugurated the kavi sammelan by lighting the lamp in the presence of all the guests. Soon after this the essence of ganga jamuna tehzeeb and feeling of compassion filled in couplets, led the audience hypnotized. Renowned poet and lyricist Dr. Rahat Indori, was heard amidst loud applause by the audience. Even today Dr Rahat mesmerized the audience with his unique style. He presented national issues in a very different manner, “ Hum apni jaan ke dushman ko apni jaan kehte hain, Mohabbat ki isi mitti ko Hindustan kehte hain, fir uske baad chahe ye zubaan katti hai…kat jaye, humnay jo kuch bhi kehna hai, Alal Aelaan kehte hain..”

He further said, “Jo duniya mein sunai de, usay kehte hain khamoshi, jo aankho mein dikhai de usay toofan kehte hain…”, “Jo ye dewar ka suraakh k saazish ka hissaa hai, magar hum isko apnay ghar ka roshandan kehte hain”…

Padmshree Surendra Dubey tickled the audience with his satirical poetry. His take on political issues led the audience into fits of laughter and at the same time made them think. “Hey bhagwan kisi ko aisi saza mat dena, Rahul jais jawani mat dena, Advani jaisa budhapa mat dena…” His couplets were full of political sarcasm and societal issues. “Jo ladkiyan apni kitabon mein aamir or salman ki photo dabati hain, unhi ladkiyon ki shaadi aksar jaithalal se hoti hai”…

Renowned veer ras poet, Dr. Hariom Panwar engulfed the audience with new enthusiasm and energy. His composition was much appreciated by the audience. “ Phool aman ke kabhi nhi khilte, kaayar pariparti mein, Nehru ji ke shwet kabootar mare pade hain ghaati mein, Dilliwalon apnay man ko budh karo ya krudh karo, Kashmir ko daan karo ya gaddaron se yuddh karo”…

Among other poets, Mumtaz Naseem Aligarhi also awed the audience with her couplets. “ Unki tujhe kaise ilm na ho saka, badi door tak ye khabar gai ke tere shehar ki shayera, tere intezar mein mar gai, koi baat thi, koi tha sabab jo mein vada kar k mukar gai, tere pyar par toh yakeen tha, mein khud apnay aap se dar gai”. One after the other she recited her couplets like, “Vo tere mizaaj ki baat ya mere mizaaj ki baat h, tu meri nazar mein na gir saka, mein teri nazar se utar gai…”

Coordinating the kavi sammelan, Dr Praveen Shukal forced their audience to laugh their lungs out and he shared his experience in couplets like, “ jaane kitne anubhavon kayhi bus saar antim, mat kabhi karna kisi se koi bhi takrar antim, zindagi ki uljhano se joojh kar jaana maine, na koi bhi jeet antim, na koi haar antim…” He also gave words to political situations and said, “ jaane kitno ki charkha ghuma di, ki modi ji ne khel kar diya, ek over m century bana di, ki modi ji ne khel kar diya…”

Dr Rahat Indori was bestowed with the title of ‘Graphic Era Kavya Gaurav Samman’. Chief Patron, Graphic Era Group, Shri R. C. Ghanshala and President, Graphic Era Group, Prof. (Dr.) Kamal Ghanshala awarded this title to Dr Rahat. Chancellor, Graphic Era Deemed University, Dr. R. C. Joshi, Vice Chancellor, Dr L. M. S.
