Patriotic fervour & hilarious parodies mark Hasya Kavi Sammelan at Gandhibagh Garden

nmc-kavi-samelanNagpur: Gandhibagh Garden of Nagpur Municipal Corporation on Sunday erupted in laughter bouts as Akhil Bharatiya Hasya Kavi Sammelan was organised here to mark 18th anniversary of rejuvenation of the Garden. The event was inaugurated by Mayor Pravin Datke, MLC Prof Anil Sole, Chairman of Standing Committee Sudhir (Bandu) Raut, Ruling Party Leader Dayashankar Tiwari and other dignitaries.

The Hasya Kavi Sammelan reached its crescendo despite untimely rains and treated the audience with hilarious renderings. At the outset, the Mayor greeted those environment lovers who exercised in the Gandhibagh Garden daily in the morning. The Kavi Sammelan started exactly at 7 pm and the atmosphere soon turned hilarious.

In the beginning, Poet Rakesh Verma presented a parody based on filmy songs and sarcastically took digs at social and political tantrums. His rendering was as such:

Holi Aee Re Kanhai Kaise Khelu

Sukhi Hai Nal Ki Totiya

Ab To Bekar Ho Gayi Pichkari

Khali Gulal Se Hi Khelo Girdhari

Nahane Na Dhone Ki Kathnai

Sukhi Hai Nal Ki Totiya…

The presentation drew overwhelming applause.

The Hasya Ras Poet K K Agnihotri, by his pricking creations, ticked the ribs of audience. His creation:

Kafile Se Alag Ho Gaye

Silsile Se Alag Ho Gaye

Jab Gawaho Ki Suchi Bani

Mamle Se Alag Ho Gaye

The hilarious lines too received laud, non-stop clapping.

The lady poet Urmila Shrivastav from Uttar Pradesh presented some traditional songs of varieties.

Pana Hai Shirsh To Pranam Ban Ke Dekhiye

Judna Hai Gati Se To Viram Ban Ke Dekhiye

Nari Ke Har Ek Roop Me Mil Jayegi Sita

Ek bar Aap Bhi To Ram Ban Ke Dekhiye

The rendition was liked by one and all.

Nagpur City’s Dayashankar ‘Maun’ drew JNU controversy with Holi revelry and created the following lines:

Mera Bharat Khel Raha Hai Holi

Antak Ke Mathe Par Roli

Anirban, Khalid, Kanhaya, Owaisi Sab Apne Hai

Phir Deshdroh Ke Nare Kyon Aur Hamse Juda Kyon Sapne Hai

Har Dharma-Varga Jab Sath-Sath Jaise Ki Daman Aur Choli

The audience enjoyed the lines to the hilt.

Itarsi’ Rajendra Malviya Alsi went different and presented his creation his own way.

Maine Pachas Hajar Karod Ki Baat Keval Ek Line Me Hi Bol Di

Dhirubhai Ambani Ne Kaha Tha

Kar Lo India Mutthi Me

Magar Unke Lodko Ne Hi

Mutthi Khol Di

The last punch was provided by Incharge Police Inspector of Police Headquarters of Bhopal Madan Mohan Samar. The patriotic creation tied down the audience even in the light drizzle and was capable of energising today’s youth who have been exhorted to safeguard the country. The lines are:

Yeh Wakt Bahut Hi Najuk Hai

Ham Par Hamle Dar Hamle Hai

Dushman Ka Dard Yehi To Hai

Ham Har Hamle Par Sambhale Hai

Vishwa Patal Par Bharat Ke Sahas Ka Pradarshan Karti Hai

The patriotic words drew standing ovation and non-stop clapping.

The programme was conducted by the Convener of the event Dayashankar Tiwari. A large number of citizens enjoyed the Kavi sammelan.
