kavishala – कविशाला Raipur Chapter
Kavishala Raipur Meetup | October 2017
Raipur is the capital city of Chhattisgarh state in central India. In the center, the ancient Dudhadhari Math temple is a sacred monument dedicated to Lord Rama, decorated with scenes from the epic poem “Ramayana.” Nearby, a statue of the Hindu monk Swami Vivekananda towers over Vivekananda Sarovar lake. Southeast, Purkhouti Muktangan is an open-air museum with landscaped grounds with statues and tribal artifacts.
Kavishala, as the name suggests it is ‘A school for poets’. Kavishala’s primary motive is to bring poetry in limelight. It was started in May 2016 with an intention to create a platform for the new and young poets across India. Kavishala was started as an online portal for amateur poets to share their poetry with fellow poets but now after a year, apart from being an online portal, it has its presence in many cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Delhi, Udaipur, Surat, Mumbai, Gurgaon etcetera across India and working on growing more.
Kavishala is a portal which also arranges poet meets on a regular basis aiming at keeping in touch with its poets personally and being a guiding fellow, also gives the opportunity to poets in getting published with their partnering Print Media and in Kavishala’s books too. Kavishala’s two editions have already been published and around One hundred fifty poets were selected. This portal has more than 3500+ poets connected and 33000+ poems shared, as of now.
It is a platform for Poets where they can share and discuss their poetry with their comrades and open for both Hindi as well as English poems.
It is a Non- Profit making Organization and was founded by Ankur Mishra, who is an Engineer by profession but a poet by nature, no wonder where this idea of creating Kavishala popped-up from.
Enjoy penning down your warm poetry!
