Hindi Poetry is the oldest form of literature and has a rich written and oral tradition. Through times, we have learnt that poetry is not just meant for entertainment in royal courts but carry the strength to move mountains, wage wars and much more. India has a legacy of poets renowned across the globe. Their contributions range in various genres like Shringar (love), Karun (pathos), Veer (heroic), Hasya (comic) amongst many. Some of the outstanding works were commonly recited during Indian independence movements spreading valour and courage.

ABP News will pay tribute to such legendry Indian poets who have made a prominent place for Hindi poetry in the world of literature through its all new one of its kind show ?MAHAKAVI?. Mahakavi is an effort to bring richness of literary heritage on Indian Television for the 1st time ever. An in-depth series of 10 episodes will familiarize old and new generation with some of the most interesting aspects of our favorite poets. Anchored by an internationally renowned and celebrated Hindi poet Kumar Vishwas, each episode of the series would encapsulate the life and works of great Indian poets like Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Dushyant Kumar, Suryakant Tripathi Nirala, Harivansh Rai Bacchan, Sudama Pandey Dhumil and many more. Kumar Vishwas will not only anchor the series but also recite and sing selected popular poems of the chosen Hindi poets. This weekly series will debut on ABP News from 5th Nov, every Sat-Sun at 10PM.

Dr. Kumar Vishwas said ?Most people nowadays forget Hindi poetry right after their basic education. Dinkar, Nirala, Premchand become mere names to them. In my performances across the world, I also recite poetries of famous Indian poets apart from my own. I see great enthusiasm amongst people to hear the great collection of such incredible poets.
