Kavi Sammelan at Bramcote Memorial Hall on Sunday 6th September

Kavi Sammelan at Bramcote Memorial Hall on Sunday 6th September

The Kavi Sammelan at Bramcote Memorial Hall on Sunday 6th September was a great success. There were 170 people in attendance, which considering the short notice is very good - many of the usual attendees could not make this year's Kavi Sammelan, so it was introduced to a largely new audience from Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The standard of the guest poets was of the highest callibre and we would like them to visit Nottingham again in the future.

We really appreciate Nottingham Asian Arts Council - whose support and contribution make the Kavi Sammelan possible.

With kind Regards

Jai Verma

England Breakthrough


ICCA is delighted to announce that at the tender age of 121/2 yrs, Anuj Dal has been selected to the England U16s Indoor Cricket Squad. Having played in the National League Indoor games at the U19 level, Anuj was invited to attend the U16s trials held in March ’09. His performance at the trials took the selectors by storm and led to his inclusion in the squad announcement made on 4 April.

Anuj will now have the opportunity to be trained by an International coach over the next few months. If he continues to impress, Anuj has the opportunity to represent England at the U16s Indoor Cricket World Cup to be played in Australia in October ’09.
