Chandigarh Literary Society (CLS) announced the winners of its first poetry writing competition 2013 which was launched in January on 26th April.
Just after Sonia Golani's interaction with the city's literati, the much-awaited results of the Poetry Writing Competition 2013 were announced.
There were 53 entries in English, 20 in Hindi and 3 in Panjabi, Ms. Sumita Mista, President CLS, informed.
Ms Sumita Misra and Ms Superna Puri, who were two of the three jury members shared the difficult process of sorting out the best poems out of numerous good ones, not without enjoying the insightful diverse treatment to the single theme of "Darkness Before Dawn".
Though not many winners could join the function, their winning poems were receited with aplomb by Superna.
