POET IN RESIDENCE

As a poet in residence, I had three performance between 16-21 Sept 2012, where I presented my poems in KANNADA. Serbian translation of the same was provided by the organisers.



You can actually listen to the Serbian version of "ಒಂದು ಕಥೆ", a Kannada poem by me. Music is composed by Manja Ristic sometime in 2010.



  
During my stay in Belgrade, the Indian Embassy in collaboration with AUROPOLIS arranged my poetry presentation @ the City Library in Smederevo, a city with fortress on the right bank of the Danube about 40 km downstream of the capital Belgrade. This was my first poetry event as 'Poet in Residence'.
