Testimonials

In Dark Room Poets’ events I not only  discovered myself but also new words, talents and new possibilities. One of the most interesting parts is that even if I share a same piece I get different feelings each time I present it in front of people.
As a performer’s point of view the division of the program i.e. introduction, performances and the Dabba Party is absolutely amazing.
I really enjoy every single moment as each moment is designed to help me grow as an artist and be a better person.

Poetry House Party

Dastaan-e-ghazal was the first of its kind poetry writing workshop I’d heard of and attended in Nagpur. Attending the workshop gave me a new dimension to look at Urdu. That it is not just a language with a great poetic expression, but also a constantly evolving canvas painted with strokes of history, geography, culture and tradition.A sher I wrote which I feel fits into an appropriate Behr and meter is:

maine sabr rakkhaa tha
waqt uthaa kar le gaya

Swaroop Bhartiya

Dastan-E- Ghazal

I always loved words, rhymes and the rhythm. The love grew deeper when poetry became my expression. But only my Diaries knew my poems and no one else. It was then, my friend read them and registered me in an event by Dark Room Poets. There they explained me the art of spoken poetry and filled in some confidence in me. The experience of the event was exhilarating. I just felt I found my cult. DRP always encouraged the writer in me. Their events expanded my horizons to another level. DRP is just not a platform but a family.
