Press Release

चंदु स्मरण Remembering Chandu – A poetry event by SAPNE

Chnadu Shah, the entrepreneur and poet, passed away suddenly two weeks ago out of a lingering sickness.  Out of his many creative contributions in Boston area was SAPNE, the South Asian Poets of New England, a multi-language poets’ group that meets every quarter.

SAPNE was established in 2008, as an effort to experiment that the poetic expressions are transcendental and live beyond the language.  About a hundred practitioners distributed in all Indian languages and many foreign languages have participated in SAPNE’s poetry meetings.  The poets are registered in the US, India, Canada and France. Chandu Shah remained a co-convener of the group in arranging meetings, inviting guests and letting people express themselves with courtesy and respect. 

SAPNE poets are scheduling a  चंदु स्मरण Remembering Chandu virtual event Sunday, November 19, 10 AM.  The first ninety minutes will be devoted to the poems dedicated as a poetic tribute to Chandu Shah.  Other guests can share brief reminiscences following the poetry tribute.
