Kavi Sammelan 2014

The Kavi Sammelan for classes 9 and 10 was held on the 23rd of January 2014. Even as we entered the hall, we were mesmerized by the ambience- flowers adorned the walls and the participants dressed in kurtas sat cross legged on asanas with small lamps around them. It had a very traditional yet sophisticated feel. The stage had been set and the students sat with baited breath for the competition to start. A few minutes later, the judges entered and were presented a bouquet of flowers. And then the competition began. The poems were soothing, humorous, some, full of satire while others touched our hearts and unfurled our emotions. Each poem held something unique and we students could relate to them. They showed us the true meaning of poetry.

                   
There were poems that ranged from Brashtachaar to Hindi Bhaasha to  a brilliant composition on Maa and many more.While some had great imagery ,some had great rhyme scheme and some had beautiful tender thoughts.
When the participants finished, our Principal, Fr. Babu delivered a short  but brilliant speech filled with valuable tips for writing poetry and encouraged us to record and preserve our thoughts and opinions on various subjects. Fr.Babu also spoke to us about the importance of planning and preparation and the desire to excel in terms of small details and finer needs of attention.Fr.Babu thanked the Hindi teachers for their hard work and their meticulous arrangements. The judges also spoke and gave their opinions on the poems, enlightening us on the importance of presentation, pronunciation and body language while speaking in public.

                     
At last, it was time for the prize distribution. The winners’ names were announced and met with loud applause and cheers.Deepayan Mukehrjee’s Maa seemed a clear winner,as did Syed ‘s poem and Kartikay’s. The  sammelan had an elusive but lyrical aura about it. And so after about 25 exhilarating poems and a seemingly short span of time, the competition ended, and we trudged slowly back to class, wishing it could have lasted a little longer.
