You can simply post a link to your submission on their wall and mention that its your entry for alfaaz.We will pick it up from there.(Do mention your name that you want us to attribute your contribution to :))

This is a very new segment so they dont have a dedicated app for it yet.Maybe sometime in future we will have a dedicated section for Submit for Alfaaz

oh it was last month :) . He can submit again if he wishes ,he just needs to paste a link to his poem

YOu can send a link to any of your stories and we can take it up :).

The station has given me complete creative control of segment so am allowed to experiment  . I have tried Hindi and english poetry, simple talks and now going towards stories .

One of the story that I already have recorded is rabindranath tagore's kabuliwala  but again a user submitted story is always preferred.

Send in your story, maybe it might be the first story for our segment :). Short stories  preferred

Animesh

Oops that the irony manSealed My blog is called Story in pieces which means it has episodic stories and which further means they cannot be short Frown

I can do one thing though, I can write a short story and send you on mail, if you like it soUndecided

Madhur Chadha
Madhur Chadha

Oh yes,that would be great but again I am not saying long stories are not acceptable.

On the contrary, if your stories are already in pieces and episodes and each episode can be done in 3-5 minutes I can devote 2,3 consecutive programs for the same. Also do you write in hindi ? We are more focussed on hindi at the moment

One reason i could not air kabuliwala was because its a 10 min piece and i need to logically break it somewhere and spread it across 2 episodes

Animesh

I don't write in Hindi but certainly can write:)

OMG! yahan mujhe leke discussion chal raha hai and mujhe pata bhi nahi! :P

@Madhur well, you can select anyone of my poems you like and you think would be apt on a radio-show :) Incandescence is incidentally my personal favorite because it was my first verse that was written WITHOUT a rhyming scheme. and thank you so much for liking my poem. 'A moment, forgotten' isn't my best work till now but it is certainly very different. I am very glad and humbled that you liked it to this extent :)

@Pooja seems like tumne thaan rakhi hai ki meri poetry ka gaana banva ke hi rahogi :P :P i am very touched :)

@Ani Thanks!!
