Day 1- Panel Discussion on Badalti Hui Duniya Mein Hindi Kavita Ke 25 Baras.
After the decline of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, the Indian scenario witnessed vast changes across virtually all fields. There are strong differences of opinion in the explanation and analyses of these incidents. Some comprehend them through concepts like 'globalization' and 'liberalization'. Others use terms like 'unipolarization' or 'privatization'. Whatever be the explanation, it has been a time of upheavals, a time of new challenges, junctures and departures for art, literature and culture. The poetry of the last 25 years has also been grappling with these changes. This change is related not just to the subject, form and content of poetry but influences its social basis, readership, geography and history. The discussion presents poets representative of the significant streams of active Hindi poetry dialoguing upon the various aspects of the aforesaid changes marking this genre.
