Pen a 'Patriotic Lori' Poetry Contest

In a world that is swiftly becoming digital, this wonderful practice and our traditional loris (lullabies) also afford an opportunity to be told afresh – the same age-old stories but told in new formats or new stories told in tune with modern impulses. In order to revive this beautiful tradition and with it, preserve the local compositions for the generations to come, Ministry of Culture is organising a Lori (Lullaby) competition for parents, guardians, and children across India.

Selection Criteria
Every Indian is invited to send in their entries here.

Loris (Lullabies) pertaining to patriotism, poems, songs, something or the other which can be easily recited by mothers in every home to their little children shall be eligible for the contest . In these loris (lullabies) there should be reference to modern India, the vision of 21st century India and its dreams.

Participants are encouraged to submit loris (lullabies) in their mother tongue but if the participant is conversant in more than one language then they can choose their language of choice.

The competition will be held in three stages to incentivize local stories to be told and be declared winners and also have the chance to compete at state and national level.

District level
Best entries from a particular district will be selected and will be declared as District Level winners to be selected by a specially constituted jury. Each winner at the district level will advance to the state level competition.

Winning Entries
The Lori contest will feature unique loris (lullabies) from every region across our vibrant country and the lori (lullaby’s) that stand out shall be rewarded publicly and will be provided a national audience.
