 About NIAS CSP KAVYAALAAP: 

Kaavyaalaap ("poetic conversation") is an initiative by the NIAS Consciousness Studies Programme aimed at popularizing poetry and allied art forms. We, with NIAS-CSP, believe that aesthetic experience of any kind can significantly and positively transform the individual's consciousness by allowing it to break free of the limitations imposed by day-to-day experience. Our endeavour is to provide an online platform for connoisseurs of poetry and related art forms to collectively experience an expansion of consciousness by being part of a carefully co-created aesthetic space. 

As an ongoing and fortnightly enterprise, Kaavyaalaap involves both Vaisistya  (formal) and Vaividhya (informal) sessions devoted to multi-lingual poetry and art forms that compliment poetry. These sessions are characterized by active participation and discussion. In the formal sessions, we invite scholar-poets to acquaint us with the nuances of poetry composed in specific languages. The Vaividhya sessions are occasions for poetry-reading by a selected panel of poets and enthusiasts from diverse linguistic backgrounds, based on a variety of chosen themes, or poets of liking. Please note that our online sessions will be facilitated through zoom calls.
