The Rotary Club of Rudramati, along with the Rotaract Club of Rudramati, Rotaract Club of Rudramati Babarmahal, and Rotaract Club of Manohara, jointly organized a program on April 12, 2023. The event aimed to showcase contemporary poetry and its various crafts and techniques. The event was supported by SathiCircle.org.


During the first session, titled ‘Shrinkhalama Kavita (Poetry in the Series)’, poets Raju Jhallu Prasad, Rasik Raj, Abhishek Raj Singh Thapa, Sriju Saral, and Suraj Parajuli presented their poems according to the theme of the event. The session started with Sriju Saral and ended with Abhishek Raj Singh Thapa’s performance. In the second session, named ‘Prishtha Bhumima Kavita’ all the five poets presented their poems together, sitting on the floor, with the background of their respective poems’ combination. Ten poems by five poets were presented in two sessions.


According to the coordinator Purnima Giri, the program aimed to connect the visual division of literature with the audio division of literature by presenting poetry in a theatrical format. The poets presented their ideas, feelings, images, symbols, and localities of their poems, along with the melody and rhythm. The program focused on the poets’ personal beliefs and characteristics without interfering with the ideological craft and linguistic structure of poetry. Giri added that the program aimed to shed light on the contemporary use of different crafts in poetry and the importance of using them in poetry presentation.


Suraj Bhattarai – Asraj, founding member of Sathi Circle, expressed his happiness in joining the program, which aims to practice something new. Sathi Circle is an organization that operates with the goal of moving forward with new practices for social change, including youth empowerment, education, and social awareness. Bhattarai expressed confidence that the program would be successful and effective according to its purpose.


During the event, Rotarian Kishor Tripathi, President of Rotary Club of Rudramati, Rotaractor Roshan Kumar Karki, President of Rotaract Club of Rudramati, Rotaractor Rishi Paudel, President of Rotaract Club of Rudramati Babarmahal, Rotaractor Safala Dahal, President of Rotaract Club of Manohara, District Rotaract Representative Elect Rotarian Roshan Karki, and Suraj Bhattarai distributed food and certificates. The program was attended by 120 people, including Rotarians, Rotaractors, non-Rotaractors, and poetry connoisseurs.


During a recent event featuring poetry performances, the participating poets shared their thoughts on presenting their work through visual media. Raju Jhallu Prasad stated that they aimed to make their poems more relatable by adding a dramatic flavor while keeping them simple. They carefully chose symbolic props to avoid complexity and ambiguity in their statements. Sreeju Saral expressed her happiness in presenting her poem in a visual structure, although she initially had doubts about remembering the poem. Rasik Raj noted that presenting poems through theater is a unique experience, as it allows them to play the character of the poem through costumes, gestures, and dialogues. Suraj Parajuli believes that adding elements of dramatic artistry to poetry makes it more powerful, and presenting poems through theater helps to increase their readership. Abhishek Raj Singh Thapa shared that it was both a challenge and an opportunity to connect Ekarka’s poetry with Ekarka during the presentation.

The program documentation was done by A.S.R. Production and Media, while Sarvanam Theater managed the theater.
