A poetic symposium, Mushairah is a gathering of people to listen to poetic verses in Urdu. Poems be it in any language they have the nerve to touch our hearts. Poems are like the soul is bleeding in the form of feelings hidden deep within.
‘Safeena Shayri Ka…’ a mushairah was organized on 8th of June, 2019 in Bhopal in the center of the Upper Lake by ‘Kalaeco’ It was organized with the goal to give a unique platform and encourage young writers and poets to come and showcase their talent.
Who wouldn’t love to experience the beauty of an evening in the center of the lake on the boat and get a chance to recite poems and listen to other poems as well?
This was the first Mushairah to be held in the middle of the lake in Bhopal. Perhaps, not the first Mushairah event organized by Kalaeco.
Many superlative poems were recited in this Mushairah event organized by Kalaeco. Ankit Gupta ‘Aseer’ from Kalaeco hosted the event.
After the success of its Midnight rooftop Mushairah, this was yet another attempt by Kalaeco to take Urdu poem mehfil Mushairah to another level.
What is Kalaeco?
Kalaeco is an initiative to provide a stage and voice to deserving and emerging young talents from the field of Cinema and Literature. Niket Malviya, Director-Kalaeco tells, “Our aim is to bridge the virtual chasm between deserving new artists and established artists in Cinema and Literature.
Kalaeco was started for the growth of Cinema and Literature alike. Kalaeco provides everything you need from opinion articles, poetry, short movies to customized merchandises.
The best Part about Kalaeco is that they offer free services to the artist. Be it you want to publish a book, they do it free of charge. They are helping artists from the field of cinema and literature in every possible way which makes them different from the rest.
Some exceptional poems that were recited at the event are below
‘Mujhe Haraa Kar Jo Itminaan Hua hai Usko, Jeet Sakta tha mujhe, Nuksaan hua hai usko’
‘Kuch bhi nahee raha hai, daur-e- shama ke tha. Dilli jo ik shahar tha, jo kuch bhi tha ke tha.’Aamir Khan
‘Meri aankho ko phir nazara dikha.
Shahr sunsaan hote hamara dikha.’
Hak-e-Hayat maut hai so yeh samaj aya,
kadam zameen pe itara ke nhi rakhna hai.
Jab ik Raees shakhs ne rakhi thi apni baat,
Khamosh rehne walo ki bhi Haan-me-Haan mili.
Woh mere baad garden me akele baith jati hai,
woh jaise dhoop jane par dopahar baith jati hai.
kahin Insaan bin baton ke berehmi se katta hai,
kahin par gai katne se kachehri baith jati hai.
I wish and hope such amazing events are organized throughout India to give a platform to various other artists as well. This is a great step towards retaining some regional language literature and I hope Kalaeco will be able to reach more cities with such amazing unique concepts.
