The Mushaira

Now in its 20th year, mushaira Jashn-e-Bahar is the biggest such event of the capital city of India. Attended by approximately 5,000 lovers of Urdu poetry in New Delhi every year, it has travelled to several places across India. The mushaira celebrates the joy of the season and of creativity as expressed through the best of contemporary Urdu Verse. It is organized with the sole objective of keeping alive and nurturing the traditions of Urdu and our Ganga-Jamni Tehzeeb that were born in and continue to flourished in the soil of Hindustan. Promoting amity and friendship through poetry, this international mushaira brings together the finest Urdu poets from different parts of the globe. The purpose is to keep alive this unique tradition of a poetic dialogue between poets and their audience and also to contribute to the efforts of taking Urdu to a wider cross-section through filming and audio-visual documentation of the event as well through the national media which has supported us throughout our journey.
