This year, the event will feature some of the best poets of our time, including Javed Akhtar, Prasoon Joshi, Professor Waseem Barelvi, Ms Minu Bakshi, Munawaar Rana, and many more celebrated poets, who will be speaking on the panel.
The 54th Shankar Shad Mushaira promises to be an unforgettable evening of poetry, music, and camaraderie. It is an opportunity for Urdu poetry lovers to witness the brilliance of some of the greatest poets of our time, and to immerse themselves in the beauty and power of this rich and evocative language.
The Annual Mushaira was initiated by The Society in 1954 and soon became a platform for eminent poets of the subcontinent to participate and showcase their work. However, due to geopolitical reasons, poets from Pakistan were unable to participate for a few years, but the next decade saw the beginning of a change for the better, and prominent Urdu Poets from Pakistan and other Countries participated in the Mushaira regularly. The legacy of this event is a rich tradition that dates back centuries, and its festivals have played an essential role in preserving and celebrating this heritage. This valued cooperation of great literary giants continued to enrich the cultural life of the Indian subcontinent. The Shankar-Shad Mushaira assumed the character of a literary Institution of vital importance in Urdu literature.

The Shankar-Shad Mushaira
Late Sir Shri Ram, the founder of DCM Conglomerate, added immensely to the social, educational, and cultural life of Delhi. Among his many contributions is the Annual SHANKAR-SHAD MUSHAIRA.
When the idea of instituting a periodic symposium to mark the changing face of Urdu Poetry through the years engaged his attention, Sir Shri Ram consulted the leading literary figures of the time namely Josh Malihabadi (Famous Urdu Poet) Shankar Prasad, I.C.S. ( the then Chief Commissioner of Delhi), Prof. Mujeeb (Vice Chancellor Jamia Millia Islamia), Ram Dhari Singh Dinkar (Poet Laureate), V. Shankar and K.G. Syed (notable Civil servants and Educationists). They enthusiastically endorsed his idea of floating a Trust in memory of the Late Sir Shankar Lall 'Shankar' (brother of Sir Shri Ram) and the Late Lala Murli Dhar 'Shad' (son of Sir Shri Ram) who were well-known poets of the Delhi School and advised him to hold Mushaira annually under the aegis of the Trust. Thus, was born the Shankar Lall Murli Dhar Memorial Society. The Society initiated the Annual Mushaira way back i.e. 1954 in which eminent poets of the subcontinent participated regularly till 1965. Till then, poets from Pakistan were unable to participate for a few years, but the next decade saw the beginning of a change for the better; and prominent Urdu Poets from Pakistan and other Countries participated in the Mushaira regularly. This valued co-operation of great literary giants continued to enrich the cultural life of the Indian subcontinent. The Shankar-Shad Mushaira assumed the character of a literary Institution of vital importance in Urdu literature. Invitation for recitation saw their latest compositions at the Shankar-Shad Mushaira, considered an important landmark in the literary career of young Urdu Poets. After the demise of Sir Shri Ram, this Institution prospered with the patronage of scions of the House of Shri Rams, namely Dr. Bharat Ram, Dr. Charat Ram and Dr. Bansi Dhar. In the past, it has received the support and encouragement of the leading lights of our nation such as our Late Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, Late Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, Late President Shri Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and other leaders of India. The event was revived in 2006 with the support of DCM Shriram Industries Ltd and shall endeavour to reach even higher levels of excellence in the world of Urdu poetry.
