Women Empowered – India (WE) presents ‘An Evening in Words’

'An Evening In Words' will have poets reading out what they love best. Each one will offer glimpses of 'light', that permeates their being and finds expression in their verse, light that shines through the darkest of times. It is so fitting that there will be music flowing through the evening, as musician poet, Inam Hussain Mullick, plays his favorite compositions. Inam plays free jazz, folk and modern classical.

The poets: Kala Ramesh, Anju Makhija, Bina Sarkar Ellias, Vinita Agarwal, Gayatri Chawla, Smeetha Bhoumik, Smita Sahay, Neha Mishra Jha, Shuchi Mehta, Tripurari Kumar Sharma, Ramneek Singh and Rochelle Potkar

The readings will be followed by a discussion on the book ‘Veils, Halos & Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women’ edited by Charles Fishman and Smita Sahay. Smita will also lead the discussion.

The entry to the program is free.
