Writers, poets recite poems for peace


As a gesture of hailing the 71st Union Day, the Myanmar Writers Club organized a poem recitation and singing for peace event at the Maha Bandoola Park in downtown Yangon yesterday.
        The ceremony was opened with singing of “Let all flowers blossom” and writers joined in chorus. Writers and poets recited poems for peace.
        “Peace is very important for the country. Public is very interested in recitation of real poem for peace. The poems recited today include poems of Sayargyi Thakin Kodaw Hmaing to contemporary poems. The culture of poem recitation is rooted in Myanmar,” said Gone Duu U Thein Naing, Patron of the Myanmar Writers Club.
        “The first step is very important for our journey to the peace. In this journey, we want to participate in the efforts for peace. This is the reason why we hold this event,” said Saya Kaung Thant, Chairman of the Myanmar Writers Club.
        “When all the people demand peace in unison, all stake holders for peace making would understand the desire of the people and success would be achieved in the 21st century Panglong,” he added. The event becomes the first activity of the club in 2018.
