SRINAGAR: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha participated in the ‘Akhil Bhartiya’ Kavi Sammelan at Abhinav Theatre in Jammu on Saturday. Renowned poets from Jammu and Kashmir, as well as from various states and Union Territories across the country, were part of the event organised by the JK Academy of Art, Culture, and Languages to commemorate the 75th Republic Day.
During the event, the Lt Governor extended a warm welcome to the distinguished and celebrated poets in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. He underscored the significant role of literary figures and gatherings like the Kavi Sammelan in fostering new ideas.
“A poet, thinker, writer is also a mystic who shapes new ideas and viewpoint, ignites young minds with dreams, vision and new resolve. Our country has a rich and proud tradition of Kavi Sammelans and they have made immense contribution in national integration,” the Lt Governor said.
He said the first-ever Dogri Kavi Sammelan will be organised in JK in the coming days as a part of Republic Day celebrations.
Such events not only bring together the literary talent but also celebrate our linguistic and cultural heritage, the Lt Governor further added.
