Episode notes

A poem is a song and a story, all at once. A poem is a thought and a feeling, all at once. A poem is a mystery and a discovery, all at once. A poem is new and old, all at once.

Host Lakshya Datta invites you listen to Launchora's brand new podcast "Poetry Darbaar" - an audio-series where you’ll hear the poems, the shayaris, the kavitas, and the poets of India. We’re going to travel across India and traverse through multiple Indian languages - including English, Hindi, Urdu, Marathi, Punjabi, Bengali, and many more. Through live readings and conversations with poets, this show will attempt to explore answers to one simple question: where do the words come from?

The first episode of Poetry Darbaar will come out on December 9, 2019 and it will feature Delhi-based poet Akhil Katyal. New episodes will be released every fortnight (or biweekly).

We hope you’ll join us on this new adventure. Welcome to the Poetry Darbaar.
