activist Dr Birbal Jha while addressing the gathering on the occasion.

“The early writing began with verses as in the Geeta, the Ramayana, the Bible or the Quran. A poem of any form has a certain rhythm so it connects the mind, heart and soul. It has a soothing and energizing impact on human life that lasts long. It touches hearts no end and so soon and creates bonding between two or more.’ added Dr Birbal Jha, popularly known as the
Paagman of India for his cultural crusade.

“As much as I have read Prof Jha, he is a wise man and an extraordinary poet who has penned a poetry on the Indian constitution’, said Rohini Prasad Tiwari, lawyer at the top court of India.
