Poetry: commercially potential pterux of literature

Under Mr. Amit Dahiyabadshah, the Delhi Poetree has thrived for a year or so. But for the benefit it has brought, I am a sort of a critic on the same. Recently it had the biggest poetry reading session in 150 years where 50 poets participated. But I felt that it was more of a phony endevour than a genuine poetry promotion movement.

Under the rules, each poet had to recite a self composed poems for not more that 1 minute. The prominent poets, who had supposedly earned their names through poetry, went on even afterwards, uncontradicted. I had read my poem- Prayer Wheel.

I am to get my citation, personally to be sealed by Chief Minister of Delhi, Mrs. Sheila Dikshit, who was the cheif guest therein.
