HYDERABAD: Poetry helps to keep body and soul together. The Hyderabad Literary Festival (HLF) – “Kavya Dhara” Poetry Festival which took place last Saturday at Hyderabad’s new gem, T-Hub Phase 2, had souls singing together heart to heart. Audiences in their hundreds enjoyed live sessions, hybrid sessions, poetry readings and pre-recorded videos during this one-day event.

Gorati Venkanna, poet and MLC, graced the event and read his lively poetry. Kalyani Thakur, Nirmala Putul, Indu Joshi and Jameela Nishat were few poets who presented their thought provoking and moving poetry to the public.

Poets who joined the live session from the UK included Clare Pollard, Imtiaz Dharker, Nadine Aisha Jassat and Gillian Clarke. They added an international touch to the poetry presented during the multilingual session.

There were two features at the event – a Bookpoint, where they set up a book stand with books from the poets who were featured at the event and “The Storybox”, a unique contraption created by Library Solutions that allows users to print stories and poems on the spot.

HLF will hold a one-day festival on December 10 — Anuvaad: the HLF translation festival, before the actual literary festival in January.
