Loquations was started by Adil Jussawalla a little over five years ago
to provide a platform for poetry readings in English, including
translations from other languages. There are about fifty members, some
of whom are practising poets, though this is not a requirement.
Presentations cover a wide variety of poetry subjects and styles,
ranging from Sufi poems to William Shakespeare, from Rap to Classical
Greek, or a simple reading of favourite poems. Presenters are mostly
drawn from the group itself. Members do not read their own poetry at
these meetings. From time to time outstation poets drop by to read
their works, and take part in a lively discussion afterwards.

Loquations meets every Tuesday evening at The Chauraha, NCPA, by kind

Membership is free, and visitors are welcome.

The ZESTPoets list has turned one year old, and we're celebrating by
organising its first real-world poetry reading on

Sunday 12 June 2005, 5 pm
at the National Coffee House, Connaught Place, Delhi.
(Third Floor, Mohan Singh Place, near Rivoli Cinema)

You are welcome to walk in, preferably with poems in hand. You are
welcome to read whatever poetry you would want to. You don't have to
be a ZESTPoets member to attend, but joining the group would not be a
bad idea either.

We have chosen CP because it is central and accessible to all; and
Coffee House on Anand Vivek Taneja's recommendation. Anand promises,
"Coffee House is used to impecunious poets hanging out for hours on
end and declaiming (usually terrible) free verse..."

So we'll try and rescue the place. You are welcome to bring along
friends and spouses. It would be nice if you could inform beforehand
that you will be there, by sending a brief email to

See you there!
