A brief about the event – It appears that transformation towards a more sustainable world is a major concern and could be a global guiding principle for 100 TPC events. Peace also seems to be a common cause. War is not sustainable. There is an increasing sense that we need to move forward and stop moving backwards. All we aim is to gather the local community and organize events to bring about changes that can sustain communal harmony amongst all of us.
On the 26th of November, 2017, poets from all over the city of Dehradun, gathered at Y Café to showcase their talent in a bilingual open mic session. This was followed by a short poetry quiz and an instant poetry creation session, the theme of which was ‘Equality’.
