I was very glad to have participated at the World Thinkers’& Writers’ Peace Meet organised by ISISAR, online on Oct 10, 2021

Dr. Anita Nahal from USA
Plamen Sivov from Bulgaria

The poets from India :

Anju Makhija
Smeetha Bhoumik

Dr.Balsing Rajput

Poets were invited to share their ideas on ‘peace’ and a multitude of interesting perspectives surfaced, expanding the scope of understanding. Beautiful poems were shared by brilliant poets, and the evening glowed with happiness.

I shared a sestina, my favourite poetic form (titled ‘Our World Will Live As One’) and also parts of a Ghazal while speaking about peace.

Peace emanates from inside and radiates in all directions in a flow of equanimity, holding the person in grace.
