Several sessions of the Fourth World Romani Congress in Serock (near Warsaw) dealt with Romani culture and language (and its possible standardisation). Among those attending were several well-known writers and intellectuals, such as Ian Hancock, Šaban Ilija, Šaip Jusuf, Leksa Manuš and Luminiţa Mihai Cioabă.
One of the sessions addressed the international Romani literature scene. Following a lecture on this topic by Rajko Djurić, there were poetry readings by the authors themselves, all in Romani.
Djurić himself presented couple of his poems, including the renowned lament ‘Bi kheresko bi limoresko’ (‘Without Home, without Grave’).
