DR LIPIPIPUSPA NAYAK,

Literary Critic

I am rejoiced, and foremost, I want to thank to Mr. Bhardwaj, ho enabled me to be a member of Indian delegation and to forgather for a few days, to roam the biggest density of Roms in Serbia, and to exchange opinions with Romany intellectuals and Romany nation all over Republic of Serbia.

Poetry is a completion of human spiritual and mental powers: inside her are knowledge, and science, and beauty, she affords cognition, and moral support, and fun, and pleasure. Poetry is something really divine… poetry makes immortal everything what is the best and most beautiful in a world… she ransom from doom divine inspirations inside man, she has a magical power to convert everything into loveliness, to render nice to beautiful, and ugly nice, to marry pain with pleasure, infinity with variety…

And a poet, that prophet who creates for people loftiest wisdoms, pleasures, purities and beauties, should be the best, the happiest, the most glorious amongst people. Coevals often disparage him, however time reward him by erasing all his faults and by accent of all his merits.

DR HARISH KUMAR THAKUR,

Politicoulogist

If an artist is a moral person then art will be moral. And her main objective would be to express truth about man soul, to express those secrets, which couldn’t be told by simple words. Because of that art exists. Profession of poets is extremely hard, almost martyry, apostolic: sacrifice and suffer – that is a destiny of speculator and artists, because their objective is welfare of people. Writer accepted the greatest duty: serving to true, peace and freedom. He should recite deep thoughts and great truths simply, that people could understand him: I denominate miserable art which is available only for elected.

DR MOHANKUMAR RAMASAMY,

Writer

India has geo-political advantages – long-term and eminent roles in world matters, but from many reasons (interior and external), that didn’t played role which it owned for many years. It was distinctive role on new independent country of the Third world and pioneers of non-unionity; actually, that was a specific role. Other countries also regarded her as a new model, and often as a portparol of majority of new independent countries of the Third world. And now, India is a nuclear might. It is detriment that India for many years, especially after finish of cold war, doesn’t play that role which is justified by her geo-political advantages and prospects of other countries. It is time for India to conceive those prospects, and affirm herself with more positive, more dynamic role, comparatively to its advantages and its heredity. I am not a poet, I am a scientist, and I will certainly in that scope help integration of Roms in a world.

VELIMPARAMPIL MICHAEL PHILIPOSE,

Writer, composer and performer of  traditional primary songs of India

I am glad that I am today with Romany writers. I must admonish you that literacy existed and that literacy exists from ancient. Also, I am glad that literature of Roms during last few years is much versatile and richest, as for child thus for adults, disregarding it is created in a shape of grandiose European literature. Literature of this small-numbered Indian nation in exodus is in good measure recognized by our readers, thank to foremost its translators and promoters, like Bajram Haliti, whose book Tadz Mahal is translated on Asam language in India, like Cana Kasum, and many other Romany writers, whose names I cant remember right now.

DR SREEDHARAN PARAKODE,

Writer

Art shouldn’t be mean of jam, yet one of conditions of men’s life, one of the ways of mutual dealing of people, and because of that and one of the tools of progress, I.E. movement of humanity forward, to perfection, to universal brotherhood, to God’s Kingdom ( and that means kingdom of love ) on earth. In that sense, science and art are necessary to people like food, drink and clothes, even more necessary.

VELI HUSEN

Member of World Roma Parliament in charge for matter of Croatian Roms

Ladies and Gentlemen, foremost, I want to salute you all in a name of World Roma Parliament, and foremost to thank to Mr.Jovan Damjanovic and Bajram Haliti, who invited me to participate on a Caravan of Indo-Romany writers.
As a member of World Roma Parliament, I want to meet you that democratic politic atmosphere in Europe is prosperous, when it is about development of new democratic system of minority rights, it is realized by consistent outroot of all shapes of nationalism, and specially by removing consequences of afore negative practice and injustice, which were done against some minorities, by resolve of ethnical stereotypes and prejudices, by permanent education of citizens, specially young, for tolerance, dialogue and value of multi-cultural societies, where specially responsibility is over educational system and Medias.

CANA KASUM

Member of the Association of Roms from Croatia

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am glad that I again see organizers of the First Caravan of Indo-Romany writers, under organization of Romany Federation Serbia.

It is certainly that this is one more try to close Indo-Romany intellectuals on a wider plan, from it is expected to offer answer on question who are Roms, where they from, and that it is final time that Roms work something on this joint plan.

BAJRAM HALITI,

Member of World Roma Parliament in charge for matter of Roms from Kosovo and Metohija, president of the Central office of Roms from Kosovo, lawyer, journalist and publicist

Ladies and gentleman, esteemed literature fellows, at the beginning of my presentation I'm obliged, as a lawyer, journalist, publisher, ethicists and a member of the World's Parliament of Romanies in charge of the tasks of Kosovo Romanies, to express the gratitude to mister Dev Bhardvejn, the president of organizational committee of the second festival of writers in India by whose invitation I, as a writer, am invited to express my thoughtfulness above historical survival of Romany people that is, in today's world, known by great victims and sufferings for the freedom which is the core Romany collective spirit and moral. These features made Romany people historical in the Hegelian meaning of the word, and in my understanding of humans fate – tragic.

We live in the time in which permanent changes are inevitable and the governing tradition. The rhythm of these changes becomes faster in developing energies of our civilization. Temporal and continual relation between old and new, past and present, conservative and modern, revolutionary and contra revolutionary becomes not only relative but also diffusional. For that reason it is very difficult to name the essential traditions of a society and culture and to mark their essence and unity by any common term. It is even more difficult to preserve the original meaning and values of the tradition among all these radical transformations of modern world.

Ever presented question – who are we and we do we go? Is also fronted to our generation but with certain modern quotations – how to defend man's integrity and free development of human character from the terrifying manipulations, controls and miseries over a man that of which are consisted political, economic, and technical powers of the world.

On this question cannot answer modern, pragmatic, specialized science. This essential question mostly does not concern the majority of the modern writers. But, if we do care about humanistic role in our civilization “classical speculations” about a man and the purpose of his existence must be creatively actualized. The answer on this question today gives political ideology which is the main responsible for many disasters, such as wars and revolutions, but also scientifically mischiefs and technical development of twenty century. Today every speculation about the peace, freedom, man's destiny, the future of people and mankind also contains consideration about the history and pre-history of the present, considering the identity of every single being, choice and valuable grounding of the main traditions in culture.

We are not conscious how much and in what ways is alerted world we live in. he speedily transforms ant tomorrow won't be what is today. And how will one small people that by decades was on the life's subway accept these changes and direct rationally his way and the rhythm of changes?

The question of Romanies is democratic question. There is no a single human right that doesn't stands out of life's interests of Romany people. Romany question is the question of liberation and affirmation of national identity. The question of Romanies is civilizational question.


It is perhaps the most important question on the ground of Europe. And the question is – how to develop human and national potentials, how to raise the quality of life, and how to reform education?

Twenty first century has planted on the ground of the whole world heavy delusions and difficult misunderstandings among people. I assort myself among those who believe and so is the literature invited to work on overcoming of present delusions and misunderstandings by her humanistic spirit. But for that role we need peace, liberty, knowledge and conscious. We have, at first place to truly know each other, to consider and name our identity today, defend and affirm existential values of our collective being into his historical existence.

In searching for the purpose of our existence it is really essential to see in the history – a man, in the national destiny – the destiny of a man, in a community- a single person, behind national and social ideologies – personal motives for “creating history”, behind flags, arms and patriotic words – a man's face, the beat of his heart, and the shape of his soul.

And we, Romany, that doesn't belong to the nations of world, whose heads are bent to the dust, will know that this dust is more sacred than the blocks from which the powerful raise their towers. This dust is fertile with the life, beauty and dignity. We will praise the God because he left to us to spend centuries of despair in silence, to stand provocations of insolent and the cargo of the powerful. We will praise the God because in all our distresses although our heart trembled with fear and anxiousness we never blindly believed in the salvation that machinery will bring, but we remained faithful to the God and to the truth of a human soul. We still nurse the hope that we will, when the power ashame to grab the throne and when she becomes ready to make the room for the love, when breaks the morning in which will be erased the traces left by the nation who stooped the mankind, be invited to clear our dishes with the holly water, the water for recovering the consciousness, to clean the humans history again and to bless with fertility the stooped dust of centuries.

I have to remind you that it is a high time for renewing closely relation of friendship which is the only natural relation among nations. There should be made lively traffic between the two hearts. We all should be parts of unique nervous system and be able to feel the deepest necessities of a mankind. We should not live in fear from each other, we should not be armed, should not keep each other under the hand of power, we should not be led with personal interests. We should change our ideas and ideals, give and receive the gifts of the divine love. We must not allow that differences in language and culture prevent us from loving each other. No racial proud and insolence because of superiority – spiritual or physical – should spoil our relations. We should allow that under the light of unified hearts grow new leaves and new flowers of literature, to allow that people from different countries and with different histories narrate that what makes the highest stadium of unity and the deepest relationship of love.

Political civilization that is present on the ground of the Southeastern Europe, which remind me on some wild, useless bur evil plant that spreads quickly, is based on turning out. She tends to keep small people under her power or to destroy them. She is cannibalistic in her tendencies and feeds with the essential supply of other people's life she is trying to swallow all their future. She is always in fear that some other people would be more respected so she declares them dangerous and than tries to erase all the symptoms of greatness above her boundaries. She keeps down that people which is weaker than she so that they remain weak forever. She betrays the confidence unshamefully, spreads networks of lies and in hers temple nurses the idols of greediness on which she is proud. She also boasts with the expensive god's services which she calls patriotism.

A man can with a certainty deny that this state will last forever because in the world does exist moral law to which are submitted not only individuals but also organized communities. You can't in the name of your nation forever step across those laws and as an individual enjoy their good side ! This public ruining of ethical ideals slowly affects every member of a society, gradually and invisibly weaken a man using cynical dis confidence toward everything that is sacred and worth of respect in a human nature, and that is the first sign of oldness.
