I am an admirer of visual poetry as a pedagogical tool to promote whole brain teaching. I was happy to know to know that an event was held in Jaipur in which the Swiss poet, Heike Fiedler (51), rendered visual poetry to select group of poetry lovers on September 26.

Earlier, she has given a performance in Delhi also.
