~ A memorable evening to honor Shri Kapil Sibal (Honorable Union Minister for Human Resource Development and Communication & Information Technology) ~
In a landmark event, SHRI KAPIL SIBAL (Union Minister for Human Resource Development and Communications & Information Technology) is all set to unveil his latest collection of poetry called ‘MY WORLD WITHIN’, his second book after ‘I WITNESS’. Shri Kapil Sibal’s new book will see many top Govt. officials, bureaucrats, dignitaries along with renowned Bollywood personalities come together to grace the occasion. This exclusive event will also see him share his poems/recitals with the special guests, and will be hosted by none other than noted film-producer Firoz A. Nadiadwala
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Kapil Sibal, Union Home Minister – HRD and Communications & IT said, “Some thoughts in my previous book ‘I Witness’ had something to do in my past. This one essentially is my present.”
“If poetry is only emotions and feelings, it affects our minds just for a short while. If it is only intellect and wisdom it doesn’t touch our hearts. Kapil Sibal’s poetry is a synthesis of emotions and intellect. His poems are felt thoughts” added renowned poet-lyricist Javed Akhtar.
