Poet Perugu explained the concept of 100 TPC. A poetry anthology “Musings -A Mosaic” published by Poets corner with 53 eminent poets from India and abroad got released by Chief guest Dr Jagadeeswara reddy and allu Bhaskar Reddy.
Dr Sarojadevi reviewed the anthology. The poetry reading went in a very diciplined way in three languages. 8 students from NEC rendered their poems and emerged as young and fresh poets. 4 Invited poets, and 4 poets on dias rendered worthy poems on several contemporary contents. Allu Bhaskar Reddy defined change in broader perspective. 5 poets read in local Telugu language, one in National Hindi Language and the remaining 10 in the world language, English. Hence this became a multi-lingual poetry reading event. Local issues, environmental pollution, bio-diversity, ecological balance, Mother, Father and other issues were well represented in the poetry. A group photo of poets who presented poetry was taken and the programme closed with the vote of thanks by Associate Prof Qaram John.”
