Dolly Singh, poetess and founder of DPF says,“Our objective has always been to promote and rejuvenate poetry in the literary space and DPF connects people through the power of poetry. It’s our endeavour to enlighten and enchant poetry lovers by putting together a platform that provides stimulating, thought-provoking and entertaining interactions for all ages and walks of life. The third edition of DPF is a leap of faith and we hope to carry it ahead in the coming years by introducing novel ideas.”
