In 2023: lines, verses and voices

Poetry in PARI is a selection of the creative expressions of everyday people. These are the voices of truth and cries for justice. The struggle of farmers, distress of migrants, daily lives of rural women, movements for Adivasi rights and more find space here. Accompanied by artistic illustrations, the poems express anger and anguish and also the lyricism of hope
