The new formed team of Sahitya Academy Delhi has accelerated the pace of organising programmes. This includes interactions within all Indian languages in the form of Translation Workshops, Seminars, Symposiums, Kavi Darbars and in many other forms. Recently a Translation Workshop was organized at Rabindra Bhawan, New Delhi for the translation of Kashmiri Poetry into Punjabi with the coordination of Dr. Rawail Singh. Mr. Aziz Hajini, Mrs. Renu Bhan and S. Harbhajan Singh Sagar represented Kashmiri poetry and Dr. Surjit Patar, Dr. Sutinder Singh Noor, Dr. Mohanjit, Sh. Amarjit Grewal, Dr. Manmohan, Dr. Vanita, Nirupama Dutt, Nitu Arora, Pawan Gulati and Swarnjit Savi were the translators. Every translator came with a homework done in hand and then in full four days they interacted with their kashmiri counterparts to reach the true feelings and meanings of original text in kashmiri poety and edited their translations as per the new gained suggestions. It was a wonderful experience with everybody. President Sahitya Academy Sh. Sunil Gangopadhya and Secretary Sh. A. Krishnamurthy visited the workshop in the inaugural and closing sessions , appreciated the work and assured the publication ‘MAHJOOR TON PICCHON’ within 15 days.Vice President Dr. Sutinder Singh Noor actively participated and translated poems in workshop inspite of his awfully busy schedule of meetings of academy for the future plans to be executed.
