Udaan is a poetry group with about 50000 ( fifty thousand poets and poetry lovers). They are of all age groups and belong to the Hindi speaking states of India. Through this group which holds its meeting point in Facebook, an extempore-ghazal writing activity called “filbadih” is conducted every evening, without fail at 7:30 pm. After finishing their work, people gather on the network to do poetry. On days there are as many as ten thousand couplets posted.
This is a collection of ghazals of fresh ghazal writers from over 8 Hindi speaking states of India. It is the first in its series. It has representative works of 101 poets who have been writing together each evening.
Udaan also has study groups where fresh writers are taught ghazal writing – syllable value rules. Such groups bring more positivity and energy to social networks.
This work has also been awarded by Poiesis Society for Poetry as the best work of a poetry group in the first quarter of 2017.
