Naani Form Prompt Rayna HallowayWith the passing of Diwali we wanted to share a traditional Telugu poetry form called, Naani. Naani means ‘an expression of one and all’ and was popularized by renowned Indian poet, Dr N. Gopi.

The Naani is a four line poem consisting of 20-25 syllables. Whilst it does not have any rigid subject or thematic boundaries, it normally depicts human relationships or current events.
