Invitation to Poets, Writers & Literary Critics
Dear Mr. Wojciech Plocharski (Poland)
In October 2004 we organized our first Writers Festival-India-2004
in Chandigarh and Shimla which was a big success. More and more Poets & Writers from all over the world are keen to participate
in such events in India since it has contributed a lot to the enrichment of world culture through literature, art and lore
apart from the oriental treasures of wisdom contained in Hindu scriptures of which Vedas and Upanishads stand out unmatched.
The message of Vasudaiv Katumbkam (the whole world is our family), delivered thousands years ago in India, is unparallel in
the history of mankind all over the world.

culture, we are organizing the 2nd Writers Festival-India-2006 on 21-24 March, 2006 as under:
