A Kavi Sammelen at Noida

Yesterday I got the chance of attending a Garhwali-Kumaoni Kavi-Sammelen-Yes they do exist- at Noida. After much delay and self praise and promotion by organisers the program finally started at 6.30 PM – full 3 hours late from the scheduled time of 3.30 PM. There were some known faces there. Narendra Singh Negi ji with his wife Usha Negi ji, Heera Singh Rana ji, Rajendra Chauhan with his wife Kalpana Chauhan and many more. Our team lead by Charu Tewari ji was fully there along with M.S.Mehta, Dayal Pandey, Himanshu Pathak and others. Program started with Saraswati Bandana sung by Kalpana Chauhan ji. The dance performance on this song was great. Then there was great welcome and felicitation of Shri Radha Krish vaishnav ji. When he came to mike he started saying that “here comes the 90 year youth in front of you”. This was great to hear as Radha Krish ji was one of oldest journalist from Uttarakhand.

Watching Kavi Sammelan was a treat as beautiful poems were recited by poets in Kumaoni and Garhwali. Such a great emotions exists in our own language, I was not aware. The poets were also of repute, we had Shri Narendra Singh Negi ji, Shri Heera Singh Rana, Shri Prem Lal Bhatt, Dr Diwa Bhatt, Shri Ganesh Kushal Gani , Shri Jagdish Joshi, Smt Veena Kandari, Shri Girish Sundriyal,Shri Hemant Singh Bisht, Shri Jaipal Singh Rawat , Shri Dinesh Dhyani, Shri Pooran Chandra Kandpal etc.  I wanted to be there for the whole program but because of the delay the schedule got extended and I had to leave without watching full kavi sammelan.

Some of the beautiful photos for you.

Here is the cutting from Nai Duniya.

Hope you have listened some of the beautiful songs with their lyrics which I updated in other site.

पतई कमर तिरछी नजर..हाय हाय रे मिजाता..

हाय सुपारी खाय-खाय सुण माया, क्या रामरो घाम लाग्यो छ

ऊँचा नीसा डाडों मा, टेढ़ा मेढ़ा बाटों मा

मालुरा हरियालु डांना का पार

ओ भिना कस के जानू द्वारिहाटा

    Yes, It was a great moment for me to see these renowned poets at one place.

    Poets created such a binding environment that listeners forgot about external world.

    Heera Singh Rana’s ‘Tyer Pahad Myer Pahad’ was my favourite one.
    However i missed narendra negi’s performance.

  2. Dr. Anil Dharka

    Garhwali kumauni kabi sammelan is appricitiable. The rearch work of Dr. B L Jalandhari too much appriciable. The new ^gaun akhar* Which call pran of our bhasha, first time I hear this word in our life. My father in law tell me barakhari which call to Dr. Jalandhari, the origin of our language.

    A Kavi-Sammelen of Garhwali-Kumaoni at Noida and the news of this sammelan display on this website is appreciatable. The journalist caments that the programm much delay and self praise and promotion by organisers. If the organiser of this kabi sammelan promote their object between all invitees than how this journalist discarage his work. All person is invities kabi and other may societies office bearers.
    We appreciate to orgniser and his objects. I understood this is not a cultural activity, not any self praised programm. They want to give their massage to preserve local language of uttarakhan.

    My only one question for you that you speack you language you write your language with your local word ?
