HINDI MANCH SAHITYA SAMMELAN – THE JOURNEY CONTINUES
The Greater Boston area with over 53 institutes of higher learning is aptly referred to as the “Mecca of Education”. Hey, but this is not it. As you all may have noticed in recent times, Boston is also now abuzz with equally great cultural activities. The spectrum is very broad. At any given point in time there are activities for the young and the not-so-young at heart, mind, body and soul. Many of us have a difficult time in determining which event to miss and which to not miss.
New England Hindi Manch (NEHM) is one such organization which for the past several years has become a “HUB” for literary and cultural shows in the Greater Boston area, specifically to promote Hindi-urdu language and our Indian culture. Their programs cannot be missed.
Each year NEHM organizes SEVERAL events that cater for all tastes and for all age groups. Hindi Manch took on a bold step of presenting a literary “Sammelan”, entitled, Hindi Manch Sahitya Sammelan, in December 2013. The event by all accounts was a hit as any previous programs brought to the audiences of the New England area. and we received hundreds of positive comments and e mails to make this a regular feature. “
This year also, the Hindi Manch Sahitya Vibhag, the literary arm of NEHM has put together the SECOND HINDI MANCH SAHITYA SAMMELAN, at 4pm on April 12, 2015 at the Thoreau School Auditorium, 29 Prairie Street, Concord, MA. It will be a wonderful collection of literary works by local poets and artistes. There will be several poet sessions, with two hind plays - Sipahi Ki Maa & Meer Kallu Ki Gawahi and some songs. All in all this will be a mesmerizing evening. So come and pass the word around to friends and those who are into literary space. This is one of a kind ANNUAL event that one can NEVER afford to miss.
The Hindi Manch Sahitya Vibhag (HMSV) team is made of Mr. Sudhanshu Misra, Mr. Syed Ali Rizvi, Ms. Shubha Chungi, Ms. Jaya Pandey and Mr. Sanjay Jain . They collectively plan HMSV events with the support of the overall infrastructure of Hindi Manch. Ms. Jaya Pandey, who is leading the efforts for this 2nd Sammelan, thanked the numerous teams and volunteers of the Web-Committee, Venue Management Committee, the marketing Committee, etc., who are working behind the scenes to provide much needed backend support without which these events will never be successful.
