The World Poetry Cafe Radio Show Celebrates our new Ambassador hosting from Oman with her poems and those of Ali Mehdi , a young poet who passed on but has been discovered by the World Poetry family around the world . They have had the privileged to hear his work for the first time and to listen to the show from Oman and Vancouver, BC, Canada with hosts Ariadne Sawyer and Diego Bastianutti, super tech Victor Schwartzman and special volunteer, Sharon.
Amita writes : “It is with great gratitude that I take the honor of being chosen as the Ambassador of Poetry from Oman. I thank The World Poetry Café Radio Show and Ariadne Sawyer, the multifaceted poet, host, founder among other accomplished and noted roles, that are for me an inspiration.
I am indeed pleased to present the first poet from Oman, Ali Mehdi, who I can proudly say is one of the pioneer poets writing in English and represents the spirit of a modern Oman that is multicultural, peace-loving and beautiful nation that has flourished under His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said’s vision and wisdom and keen and continual, unstoppable effort.
