Our first ever Poetry Open Mic takes place on 30th April, from 7 pm at The Habitat, Khar.
When noted poet T.S. Eliot started off his poem, ‘The Waste Land’ with the line ‘APRIL is the cruellest month‘, we felt that. What with a tumultuous month of exams and submissions, how about ending it on a rather poetic (read: super dramatic) note?
At every Open Mic we have hosted, we have loved the poetry performances — covering almost every genre, delivered in multiple languages, words painting pictures so vivid, that it’s almost painful when the narrator recites the last verse. It was about time we hosted a gig exclusively for poets, so we’re dedicating the 30th of April to college-going poets! Here are two of the poets you’ll see there.
Your host for the evening, this KC College student has written poetry about moving away from home, her sexuality, and a hilarious ode to sabudana. The poet, with her impromptu quips, is sure to be the life of the party at The Habitat Cafe.
Jai Hind College student Kaajal Ahuja has written and performed her poetry through ATKT.in at events around the city, including the We the Women conference that took place in December last year. Her latest feature being on Star Movies India (where she recites her poem about Kung Fu Panda), Kaajal couldn’t be more excited about us hosting our first ever Poetry Open Mic!
TL;DR: Malvika, Kaajal, and a whole line-up of talented poets want to share an evening of some moving, some funny poetry with you. See you there?
