Nationalism Through Literature at the Great Indian Literature Festival, Season 2

The Great Indian Literary Festival

Last year’s The Great Indian Literary Festival was a splendid affair that focused on vernacular languages of India, minus wine and cheese. Called as “India’s only Regional Literature Festival”, TGILF’s second season is back with a bang on February 24, 2018. Set to take place in the City of Lakes, Udaipur, the subject of discussions and debates are focused on exploring Nationalism through literature this time. The Festival promises to be a three-day-long extended gathering, with more than 50 authors and literati having been invited from over four different states in India. Panel discussions, round-table conferences, one-on-one forums, poetry recitals and book launches will take place till February 26, at three exotic locations in Udaipur.

Founder of the fiesta, author Amit Shankar, is a Limca Record holder and a wordsmith who has drafted four bestselling titles till now. He shares insights about the second season of TGILF, “This year we are keeping the content more enriching, without ‘Page 3’ ambitions. We have invited Kiran Maheshwari as the Chief Guest of the event, along with luminous political personalities like Dr Shashi Tharoor and Kapil Sibal to join us.” Last year, the intimate gathering was graced by the presence of columnist Kusum Chopra, Sumita Pant who is the daughter of poet Sumitranandan Pant, and BJP Spokesperson Sudesh Verma. This year, Padma Shri Prof Dinesh Singh and television personality Pankhuri Awasthy, will also be present to discuss literature with the close-knit group. Stay tuned to Creative Yatra for a thorough coverage of this one-of-a-kind literature festival.
