KABUL (Pajhwok): Poets and critics are of the view that holding annual poetry and literary gatherings are vital for cultural growth and bringing people closer to each other.

Prof Waliullah Fazil, writer and professor at Nangarhar University, told Pajhwok Afghan News that poetry and literary sessions could provide opportunity for young poets and a platform to enhance their knowledge and share their experiences.

It could help in promoting the taste of poetry and literature, he said, adding: “Unfortunately, people prefer poets over poetry which can cause loss to literature.”

Bakhtiar Talash, a young poet, criticized poetry gatherings that people gave no importance to meaningful poetry in gatherings.

Palwasha Ahmedzai, a poetess, said: “Poetess can spread peace messages in better ways which can win hearts and minds of people.

Noor-ul-Habib Nisar, a writer and critic, appreciated holding of such gatherings and said that poetry related gatherings would contribute to peace and stability and motivate people to take part in country’s development.
