Here's a glimpse at our Poetry Artists for Catharsis 2018!
1. Shobhit Narang:
Shobhit Narang has been a seeker, spiritual enthusiast and a curiosity-driven learner at the school of life. Brought up with the traditional ideologies of selflessness, grace, blessings, karma, and forgiveness, he tries to weave those values in his work. When it comes to love, he’s a great believer of old school romance. He loves talking about complex human emotions and vulnerabilities. For him, art is all about being honest. He has written a zine called “The Right Foot” as a fundraiser for Autism Welfare. “I want things to change. I’ll write. If words will not bring the change, then what will?”
2. Sanjana Rao: 'Love arrives exactly when love is supposed to
And love leaves exactly when love must'
Mine came at a time when I was struggling to understand the complexities of why people behave the way that they do. It was almost six years ago that I got interested in writing and almost three when I first got to attend a slam poetry event. From that moment on I knew what it was to fall in love for the very first time. For words never made sense whenever I spoke them outloud, I started to recite things inside my head, but never really got to perform in front of an actual crowd untill now. I usually write about sonder- about human complexities and relationships and the same reflects in my poem "A Relationship with Cigar." ______________________
3. Parth Chhatrapati:
Parth Chhatrapati is a science student by profession and a poet by passion.He believes in writing for himself.
“Jo khud k liye likhte hai woh lekhak hai,
Jo dusro k liye likhte hai woh toh bas sevak hai.”
Most of his late night adventures include watching Real Madrid matches and penning down absurd philosophical theories.
He is a staunch believer of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, the symbolic outlook of it at least (he doesn’t understand the scientific one).
"Anything could happen literally anytime, you never know what happens when, live your life in moments, live your life in the moment." “When they all have gone for their gain,
kicking me down the drain,
give me a book, a pen,
and watch me as I rise again.”
