Prominent Hindi writers like Dinesh Kumar, Vaibhav singh and Sushil Siddharth recited from their books.  The second day, which concluded last night, focused on younger generation of poets as the seminar revolved around the theme “Ek Sham Yuva Kaviyon ke Naam”.

The young poets present were Anju Sharma, Avinash Mishra, Nikhil Anand Giri, Leena Malhotra, Wazda Khan, Shayak Alok and Suman Kumari.

 “We are trying to search more talent and now we are thinking of doing that through talent hunt in schools and colleges,” said Maitreyi Pushpa, vice chairperson, Hindi Academy, at the inauguration.

Dr Hari Suman Bisht, author of various novels including Basera, said, “The Academy’s main purpose is to promote Hindi, as we are trying to do a ‘Hindi pakhwada at AIIMS on Hindi Diwas’”.
