Bangalore Lit Fest...

It was a Fun Fest.... with several 'serious' moments... as I am sure you'll be able to figure out from these write-ups. Well, the BLF got off to a good start. It can only jump up to a higher level from next year, now that the local fat cats have seen its potential. Given the emphasis on Kannada... perhaps a parallel Lit Fest for Kannada writers is the answer.
As for me, I had a wonderful time at the Fest, and at the Authors' dinner hosted by one of the most beautiful hotels in the world - the Taj West End, on the lovely lawns called Mynt. The pastry chef outdid himself by creating a veritable library of edible books in chocolate and beyond! Let's call it real food for thought!  I was happy to eat my own words.... for once!!!

I don't understand how does the question of using the word ' outsiders' even arise when on the one hand we declare India to be a socialist, secular, democratic republic, where it is guaranteed by the constitution to a citizen of India the right to settle in any part of India.

Hi,

I just finished reading "sethji" - quite interesting given that I finished it in almost 2 days, and now I am inspired to look out for illegal guns in dubai ;)
