Poems from the SAARC Region- 2012 is an anthology of poetry presenting poems of South Asia and echoes its distinct cultural identity from South Asia.
Contemporary Short Stories of the SAARC Region, 2012 is one of the SAARC Cultural Centre’s initiatives to promote regional literature and to make it accessible to a wider readership.
These two initiatives of SAARC Cultural Centre are aimed at further strengthening the cooperation among the people of the SAARC member countries by providing a pan-regional platform for the established, as well as promising poets and authors from South Asia. These two anthologies would not only provide a novel experience to those who want to explore South Asian poetry but also as a reference tool for literary critics, academics, and students of culture.
