The execution partner for this event was Kaafiya, India’s leading poetry platform that has evolved in last years from a small group of prolific poets to a large conglomerate. It is a community of 80,000+ poets and poetry lovers. Kaafiya has also successfully executed over 40 big/small events and more than 100 online contests.
The performances by the curated artist line up kept the audience mesmerized and instilled in them the importance of unity and how it can help individuals, or nation beat all the odds and help us create a happier place for one and all. And for disseminating this idea, what would have been a better way than expressing the same through music and poetry.
