Mushaira is the gathering of poets for the reading or recitation of their compositions. It has played an important role in the development of both Urdu and Gujarati Ghazal. These events can be both educational and entertaining. They enable the poet to share his interpretation of life and reality and his ideas with an appreciative audience.

Held on various occasions, Mushairas are very popular even today and are most enjoyed by the participating audiences. In a Mushaira, some poets prefer to read their Ghazal in a plain way, while others prefer to recite it in a sing song manner (Tarannum).
