About the Event

At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.


-Plato.


Prem vo ehsaas hai, jise hum sab ne kabhie na kabhie mehsoos kiya hai. Prem vo bhaav hai, jo kal bhi tha, aaj bhi hai, aur kal bhi rahega. Prem hum sab karte hain, Mohabbat hum sab ko hoti hai. Aur apni mohabbat ko bayaan karne ka sabse khoobsoorat tareeka - Hota hai Kavita.
