THE 15th National Convention of Akhil Bharatiya Sahitya Parishad (ABSP), world’s largest representative organisation of nationalist litterateurs and poets, will be organised from October 6, to 8 in Jablapur.

The grand amalgamation of renowned litterateurs will be held at Agrasen Kalyan Mandapam, Vijay Nagar. During three-day convention starting from October 6, Governor of Goa Mridula Sinha, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh and Uttar Pradesh Assembly Speaker Hriday Narayan Dixit will grace the occasion. Convenor Dr Sudhir Agrawal, Vice-President, Madhya Pradesh unit of ABSP added that around 600 writers, poets from different parts of the country will participate and share their views on strengthening the stream of literature for creative, constructive society with patriotic sentiments. He added that during three-day event, noted thinkers, writers and poets will assemble on the land of Bundelkhand.

President of India Ram Nath Kovind, Governor of West Bengal Pundit Kedarnath Tripati may also attend the convention. Both the dignitaries are yet to confirm their visit, said National General Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sahitya Parishad Ravindra Shukla and former Education Minister, Uttar Pradesh Government while addressing a press conference on Sunday.

On October 6, a grand Kavi Sammelan will be organised in the evening. Cultural presentation by cultural organisations of the city will aslo be held. On day two of convention, a grand procession of Epics of India along with great books will be taken out with participants.

National General Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sahitya Parishad Ravindra Shukla added that in this convention poets, writers representing different languages and states will participate and share their creative ideas to combat conspiracy hatched by a gang of so-called litterateurs in regime of UPA Government, who never accepted the nationalist poets and gave recognition to their work as literature or poetry.

Literature telling stories of great heroes like Maharana Pratap, Shivaji and others have been replaced with silly excuses that presence of such literature hurts sentiments of a particular community. But in reality conspiracy to divide the nation again is being hatched.
Ravindra Shukla apprised that Bundelkhand has immense and crucial contribution in Indian literature.

Indian poetry lies in its epicss like Veds created by Maharishi Vedvyas in Kalpi district of Bundelkhan, while Ramayana was narrated by Maharishi Valmiki in Chitrakoot and Mahabharat was also scripted in this region.
