Date & Time

Bangalore International Centre
7, 4th Main Road, Domlur II Stage
Bangalore, Karnataka 560071 India

Dive into a world of succinct beauty with haiku poet Prashant Sankaran, where every word paints a picture and every pause resonates with nature’s whisper. Uncover the art of capturing moments in just seventeen syllables.

Join us at BIC Library for an evening of engaging with Haikus. Haiku is a form of poetry that originated in Japan and then gained popularity across the globe. It is constructed with just three lines and traditionally with a unique syllable structure.

During the session we will collectively learn a bit about Haiku, its structure and study a few examples. We will also attempt to write some of on our own and share within the group.
