I am doing a haiku workshop at Mumbai’s favorite festival Kalaghoda this year.
On the 9th of Feb, from 4 pm to 6 pm at Somaiya centre at Hutatma Chowk, Mumbai. 2nd floor above Kitab Khana bookshop.
I’ll focus on Haiku appreciation by reading out lots of classical and contemporary haiku and then, perhaps, you can try your had at writing some.
Three lines and 17 syllables may seem simple but it is not.It is poetry but you do not have to be a poet to appreciate or even write it. You have to be a lover of life and be willing to experience the power of the present and the beauty and angst of nature and life.
It is fun to try and experiment once you understand a few basics and who knows, you may just find yourself a passion for a lifetime.
