The second Poets’ Meet for Children—Balakavita Pathotsava—was organized on December 10, 2015, by Samskrita Balasahitya Parishad. This special programme to propagate children’s literature was arranged as a part of a two-day seminar on ‘Sanskrit in Social Media’, in which the poets were asked to recite only children’s poems composed by them.
Padma Shri Ramakanta Shukla, General Secretary, Devavani Parishad, New Delhi, presided over the programme and Dr. Jeet Ram Bhatt, Director, Delhi Sanskrit Academy was the Chief Guest. The programme was facilitated by Dr. Sampadananda Mishra, Director, SAFIC, and the founder of Samskrita Balasahitya Parishad.
The special attraction of this poet’s meet was recital of self-compositions by a few children. The whole programme was extremely enjoyable. Dr. Buddhadev Sharma’s poem ‘Taata Nayatu Maam Nainiitaalam’ of was selected as the best poem by the Parishad. Special prizes were given to the children poets.
