Raj Shekhar, the lyricist of the famous song, Kitne Dafe from Tanu Weds Manu, recently took a metro ride and left the crowd in awe.

He is av Kirori Mal College alumnus and feels that “Gurgaon is an ubharta shehar”. He also added, “Maza aaya iss ride mein. I had never experienced anything like this before.


I was initially apprehensive ki kitna shor aur bheed hoga. But once the recitation started, it didn’t feel like we were in a moving train. Maybe the rail had synced its rhythm with ours!”

As far as the quality of poetry was concerned, he said, “Mamla ab democratic ho gaya hai, and thanks to such platforms and social media, aaj poets ke paas ek audience hai.

Kavi sammelans often get boring, but at this session, I could see a guy who was probably from the interiors of Delhi, and a girl who was probably from south Delhi, which means voices of different kinds are coming together.”
