I recalled that the Jaipur Literature Festival also started in a modest scale a decade ago and like it, the National Poetry Festival and New Town Book Fair (proposed name by the organizers) could also celebrate poets from around the state, country and the world. They have already contacted Assam as a partner poetry state. There could be some poets from Bangladesh and other countries as well. Poems in English, Bangla, Hindi and other languages could be recited by poets from their own creations, they said. Further details would be worked out soon.
