Which version do you like ? The Black & White one or colored version? Above photograph shows two of my favorite people from the evening - Tom Alter & Shreen, both are awesome poets ! Above photograph shows the moment when Shreen asked him to guess her name. Actually she has done a play with Tom Alter and she gave different hints to guess the name & recall about their last meeting. I loved this interaction.
This was first time I was seeing Tom Alter live in front of me. Three years back, I went to Alliance Francaise to watch Mirza Galib but cast was different, so missed seeing him.
Tom Alter was here with the Tea Expert Anamika Singh/ With amazing poetry by Tom Alter, we had amazing Anandini Tea at Le Meridien, Delhi.
Tom had a fabulous entry into the hall where everyone was waiting eagerly to see him & listen to his poetry. He also presented poems written by other famous poets !!
His poems were quite apt for the whole environment and theme of the evening !
