Day 5 -- Poetry reading

"A treat listening to the sensitive poets!" was how writer and dancer Tulsi Badrinath described the evening. The three poets featured were Sharanya Manivannan, L. Ramakrishnan (Ramki) and K.Srilata.

The evening started off with reading of some of the poems that had been submitted for the open call for poetry. Ramki started the reading with the poem, "Fire", by Singaporean poet Cyril Wong. He went on to read works by other poets, as well as his own. Srilata read several of her poems, including "A graveyard of faces", which was featured in the online French journal “Recours au poeme”. Sharanya shared her poem "How to read a wolf" and other works.

The reading concluded with a Q&A session where audience got to ask a few questions with the poets.
