Literary Meet – The Power of Words
A literary meet was held on the 3rd June, 2014 in the school A.V. room. This was initiated by the English faculty primarily to acquaint the class XII students with the eminent and the promoting writers of the valley. It was a day-long session with a question-answer session. This meet “The Power of Words” was graced by Mr. G.R. Malik, NaseemShifai, DeebaNazir, and Huzaiwffa Pandit. The audience was spell bound with their narrations. These were moments of intensity broken by the hiatus of humour. Mr. Malik spoke about translations saying that they were impossible but a must. He said that translating anything is like taking dew drops from leaves which disintegrate immediately. Naseem Shifai expressed an urgency to preserve Kashmiri literature. Her presence and oratory skills mesmerized the young audience. Deeba Nazir’s short story ‘Chandav’ brought tears to many eyes. Huzaiwffa Pandit spoke about the necessity of blank verse to create spontaneity in poetry. The students applauded his unconventional views.
The session generated a lot pride in the hearts of the youngsters. It has left indelible impressions on their minds. We hope this meet will be a prelude to many more in the near future.
