BENGALURU : Giving a platform to aspiring poets and writers, Lahe Lahe has organised a monthly event, Mehfil, where three poets get to share their poetry with the audience. The idea of conducting this monthly event took form after the weekly poetry evenings called, ‘Write Out Loud’ garnered attention. 

Mansee Shah Thard, who organises the event says, “Write Out Loud is a community event, where people come and share their poems with each other. After doing it for more than two years, we started getting a lot of requests from people to conduct a monthly event. That is when we started conducting the monthly open mic sessions.”

Every month Mehfil features three poets who alternate between English and Hindustani. Arpit Arya who works as an engineer, is a regular at Write Out Loud and will be one of the three poets at the session this weekend. He says, performing at this place helps him nurture his love for poetry and gives him a chance to explore his potential. He says, “I think the place is non-judgemental and gives you honest feedback. This exposure also helps in getting different ideas and perspectives.”
