For next two ours, each participant will get opportunity to recite only one of their original works.
In July this year, Kavitactic, a small community of literature lovers named, has given poets of Shimla an opportunity to recite their poems to a gathering of local poets at first-of-its-kind poetic event “Kavitactic Shimla: Inaugural Chapter”. Several poets mostly youth did meet at the Shimla Café Times and shared their original works with sensible audience. Himachal Watcher had also witnessed this wonderful poetic evening and had captured it for the readers as well. But we could not publish it due to some reason. But you must watch a glimpse of previous gathering. Take a look:

As we had said earlier, urbanized world filled with distractions known as electronic means of entertainment have discouraged literary minds and they no more dwell on mysticism and that meticulous art of playing with words rhymed together to express feelings in their purest form. Poems have the power to stimulate introspection among readers. Poetry is addictive and dangerous.
So, there is no reason literary hearts should miss the eve.
