A LITERARY tribute to Tamil poet Kavikko Abdul Rahman has been organised by various Tamil organisations in Bahrain.
The literary celebrity who died last year was given the title Kavikko which means ‘King of Poets’.
His poetry collections have won great critical acclaim and his collection, Aalapanai won him the Sahitya Academy Award for Tamil Poetry in 2009.
He was one of the few poets with multi-lingual talent who experimented with forms in Tamil poetry, including haiku, ghazal and sufi elements into his works.
The event will take place at the Indian Club on Friday from 6pm. Call 33768876 or 66936777.
