SHARJAH, November 26, 2021 (WAM) – The Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) of the Eastern region organized a round table titled “A Poet’s Reflection”, during which it hosted the Emirati writer and poet Awad bin Hasum Al Darmaki, at the Khor Mangrove Center of Kalba.
The round table was moderated by poet Aidha bin Masoud.
The roundtable was attended by Sheikh Haitham bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Deputy Head of the Sovereign’s Office in Kalba, and Fadel Hussain Waseem, Director of the Office of the Sharjah Book Authority in the Eastern Province, in addition to a certain number of heads of government agencies in Kalba. .
Al Darmaki touched on a number of his books, poems and a number of his personal experiences with the programs he filmed inside and outside the UAE, and their impact on society.
Al Darmaki said that his management experience has taught him that development is an intellectual stage, not related to age, and that the environment plays a major role in the development of people and their working environment which strengthens the talents and stimulates progress.
Poet Awad Al Darmaki said he loved poetry and disliked being called a poet, whereas a poet mainly writes from personal experience which can benefit a specific group of people, and it cannot be generalized to society as a whole, and therefore a person should strive to benefit his society.
During the round table, Al Darmaki delivered a selection of his poems on the love of his homeland and the sheikhs.
