The J&K Academy of Art, Culture & Languages organised a daylong multilingual composite Mushaira in the auditorium of the prestigious SP College in the state's summer capital Srinagar on November 25, 2015. The participation was exclusively for the budding youth studying in the different colleges of the Kashmir region, to explore new talent and to boost their creative poetry. A beautiful galaxy of participating students was witnessed on this occasion. The event was presided over by renowned Kashmiri poet-critic and Jnan Pith awardee Prof Rehman Rahi. Several prominent local senior writers and critics were present.

Prof Rahi, on the basis of his personal experience, advised the budding poets to give preference to their mother tongue Kashmiri.
