The Commissioner and CEO of Udaipur Smart City Project, Siddharth Sihag was appreciative of the initiative, vision and the fast implementation of the project by those working towards it. He also expressed his thanks to the corporate who have participated in this project and agreed to provide services at lower than market costs as a their contribution towards this social activity.

This event was made even more inclusive and interesting as it was held under the umbrella of “Mahamurkh Haasya Kavi Sammelan”, the audience coming in throngs to listen to Padma Shree Surendra Sharma, Anamika Amber, Munna Battery, Rao Ajaatshatru, Deepak Parikh and Suman.
Surendra Sharma took a dig at the UP elections, saying मैं चुनाव नहीं लड़ता क्यूं कि जब देश की जनता को प्यार से जीता जा सकता है तो लडक़र जीतनें की क्या जरूरत है.. He also took a dig at religious heads by asking…राम तो सबरी के झूठे बैर खा सकते है लेकिन सबरी राम के मन्दिर में क्यूं नहीं जा सकती.. The audience appreciated this comment in the form of thunderous applause.
Poetess Dr. Anamika Amber was also chirpy in her rendition of her poems, once of them being शाम भी खास है,वक्त भी खास है,मुझको एहसास है,तुझको एहसास है,इससे ज्यादा हमें और क्या चाहिये मैं तेरे पास हूं तू मेरे पास है…… , जहाँ पर सच दया सम्मान और ईमान रहता है वहीँ जाकर वह अल्लाह है और भगवन रहता है….
Earlier on during the session, Munna Battery had the audience in splits with this one liners, especially talking about demonetisation, regular digs from Indian politicians on Pakistan and राम की धरा पर हर ओर केसरिया ही छाया है…,
Bhilwara’s Deepak Parikh also took home applause from the audience since he communicated in local rajasthani dialect, which was audience appreciated. His line अपने भविष्य के अक्षर अपने हाथों काले मत करों बच्चों को संस्कार दो, कम उम्र में मोबाईल का इस्तेमाल मत करों …was also appreciated by the audience.
Udaipur’s Ajaatshatru, who anchored the Kavi Sammelan, put in his contribution in the form of फेसबुक जैसा फेस तुम्हारा , गूगल जैसी चाल.
