Har Parcham Surkh Lahu Hoga

Aurobindo Ghose

Aurobindo Ghose

Spent a lovely, enjoyable and ruminative evening yesterday, with family and friends, at the book release of scientist-poet-activist Gauhar Raza's book of poems "Khamoshi" at the IIC, New Delhi.

Poet Ashok Vajpayee relesed the book in the distinguished company of Sharmila Tagore, Anamika, Gita Johari the publisher and artists, writers, students, academicians, activists and journalists.

Gauhar Raza recited some of his poems, notably the title poem 'Khamoshi' ( 2016, in reply to the attack by Zee News), 'Har Parcham Surkh Lahu Hoga' ( 1989, on the murder of theatre-activist Safdar Hashmi), 'Ye jo bhi hain ajeeb hain' (2010, on the killing of two Reuter journalists by American forces, now rededicated to Gauri Lankesh) and 'Katlagahen' ( 2016, on the attack on ANHAD activists). A memorable, spirited evening indeed !

Gauhar Raza autographed his book for me.
