Manfest-Varchasva hosts a plethora of business, cultural and sports events

× Note: Registration deadline extended to 5th November



For all they say- “Heard melodies are sweet but those unheard are sweeter”, can your poetry too weave magic by words? If yes, then it’s time to don the feather of an artist and cast a spell on your audience. Manfest-Varchasva presents to you Rohan, a spoken word poetry competition for all the aficionados with their original compositions, who believe that words and words are all they have to take our hearts away.

A feud on words or food for thoughts, a hill to climb or a slope to fall, a loaf to grind or a hope to bind, all to be decided in the arena.

Is it a path or is it a leap,
Will you conquer it or will you sleep?
