Cheers greeted the poems of Salim Shivalvi who recited “Ashiqon ki qatar lag gayi” and “Police kya hai ye samajhana hain to kisi muthbher ko dekho, asal to bach nikalate hain nakli dher hote hain.”

Dinesh Singh and Sri Prakash Mishra also recited their poems. Dr Rajesh Kumar Singh conducted the cultural programme.
