Jaipur holds 'Meet the Poet' event to provide healing touch of Alka Tyagi's poetry
The Rajasthan Adult Education Society, Jaipur, is hosting the event "Meet the Poet' (Kavi Se Miliye) this evening in their auditorium wherein the noted poetess Alka Tyagi, Associate Professor in English at Dyal Singh College, University of Delhi, will be enthral audience with her poetry recitation.

She has already made a mark with her spoken word art recitational style and pleasing persona. Along with being a poet, writer and academic, Tyagi is a yoga exponent too who has been associated with Bihar School of Yoga. Educated about and trained in yoga tradition, she has been organising well-received yoga events in India and abroad.

Along with editing some books, She has authored titles such as Healing Tales; Andal and Akka Mahadevi: Feminity to Divinity; Sun Ri Sakhi; Amaltas; "Ka- Kala, Sampada evam Vaichariki", etc., in Hindi. She has also done a poetry collection called "Whispers at the Ganga Ghat" and video of her recitations have also been produced.

The book of English poems "Whispers at the Ganga Ghat" has 62 poems with sections on Speech, Whispers and Silence which connect to you with the nature, universe and divinity. Here is the taste of a part of her verses: Saffron coloured evening / Descending peace / Lights up the flowers / Kept on the windowsill / And makes me one /With the Sun!

It is said that her poetry has 'an element of healing' but the taste of the pudding lies in eating it. It has been felt by many that her poetry has therapeutic value.
