Hyderabad. Though the reading was organised by the British Council none of it would have been possible without the wherewithall of dynamic poet and Academic Mamta Sagar. I met mamta at a poetry festival in South Africa an we have been good friends ever since. In Hyderabad I met Mamta, her husband academic and artist, Sham and there wonderful son. There were two readings in all in Hyderabad. The first was at the Sheraton Hotel and with various schools and the second was in the open air at an Ampitheatre.
this is mamta sham and I the sheraton leaflet and signing posters after
reading. It really was a magical timne in Hyderabad. |I think this picture on the front page of the newspaper the day after says it all not sure you can see it though
