कक्षाकोठादेखि कक्षाकोठासम्म

Some glimpses of the three-week long intensive  spoken word poetry instructor training.

कवितामा केन्द्रित तालिम भएको हुनाले कविताको बारेमा सिक्न इच्छुक कविहरुका लागि यो एकदमै राम्रो अवसर थियो । कविता भनेपछि हुरुक्कै हुने मैले पनि यो अवसर गुमाउन चाहिन । डिसेम्बर २३ देखि एक महिनाको लागि हरेक मंगलबार र शनिवारको पुरै समय मैले यो कार्यशालाको लागि दिएँ । कविता आफूमा सबै हुन त राम्रा नै लाग्छन्, तर राम्रा कवितालाई अझै सिंगार्न मैले यो वर्कशपबाट सिक्न पाएँ । रुपक, उपमा र अनुप्रास जस्ता कुरालाई कवितामा ढाले पछी आफ्नै कवितामा देखिएको भिन्नता हेरेर म मख्खै परे । त्यसमा झन् मिठास थप्ने काम गर्यो सेन्सरी डिटेल अथवा संवेदी विवरणले । हाम्रो यो तालिमको उदेश्य भनेको मात्र आफू सिकेर आफूमै सिमित राख्ने थिएन । विभिन्न ठाउँमा गएर अरुलाई पनि कविता लेख्न प्रेरित गर्ने हाम्रो चाहाना भएकाले कविता सँगसँगै मैले कक्षाकोठालाई कसरी अझ रमाइलो र राम्रो बनाउन सकिन्छ भन्ने नि सिकेँ । त्यो वातावरणमा नै म एक छुट्टै सकरात्मक अनुभूति पाउथेँ । सबै आफ्नै जस्ता लाग्ने भएर पनि होला मन सारै आनन्दित महसुस गर्थ्यो ।
