Now Powai will have a literary meet every month

Powai is blessed with almost every facility. While Powai is affluent, classy, sophisticated and a sought after address in Mumbai today, unfortunately it is isolated from fine art and even from a basic movie theater. Ironically,  short entertainment is almost missing in this area that boasts of the best schools, colleges, hospital, supermarkets, eating outlets, etc. Think of it, the nearest place for enjoying a concert, play, recital stand-up shows or even an exhibition, one has to travel at least 10-12 kms.

This was the trigger point for 2 individuals who have been Powai residents since 22 years and are proud to call themselves Powaikars. They have literally seen Powai transform to a beautiful neighbourhood. So they took it upon them to provide a basic platform for young poets and authors to exhibit their talent. Dr. Ruchi Chojer Arora (IIT Bombay alumni) who is an upcoming promising poetess (her work published in poetry society of india book) and Mr. Hempushpak Arora (Member IPTA theater & established ad film actor) started an initiative called "jheel ke iss paar". 

The objective of the initiative was to contribute to society and the world of literature without looking for funds or any donations. The initiative hit a roadblock as space was very essential and it was not easy to get a 40 seating capacity month after month. Without allowing this issue to hamper their objective, they extended their house. A room with their balcony was dedicated for this endeavor.

The first forum was held on June 3 and it was a resounding success. Sixteen poets recited their work. It was heartening and a morale booster for the initiative when noted stalwarts like professor Hoobnath (Mumbai University) Raqeeb, Dr. Wahid Sharma, Vibha Rani (her story included in Maharashtra Board Hindi curriculum) Sooraj Prakashji a state awarded Hindi author and many more graced the occasion with their presence. The quality of delivery was top class. With no restriction on language, it surely will attract more and more people to come together in the months to come.

The duo appeals to the people of Powai who have a positive bias towards literature to attend the event on July 1, 2018 Sunday at 3.30pm in Raheja Vihar. Entry is free.  You could call Mr. Hempushpak Arora 98926 18127 for more details.
