Disha Literature Festival 2.0 was two exciting days of exploration of the world of books and storytelling. Visitors participated immersively and interactively in story telling sessions, theatres, story writing workshops, fun events and a lot more. Disha Literature Festival hosted the finest authors and story tellers in the genres of children's literature. DLF was hosted on 7th and 8th February, 2020.
The Disha Literature Festival was all set in the beautiful city, Kanpur. Kanpur, known for its touch with literature, had made its name in history in February, 2019 when the first season of Disha Literature Festival which was started with a simple purpose to bring authors and readers together in a celebration of literature and literacy was tagged SUCCESSFUL.
We believe, literature is not bound between the covers of a book, but blooms in a free environment, in myriad forms, languages and mediums. This festival has room for all of them. It aspired to celebrate book writers, poets and playwrights, film writers, lyricists, journalists, social media writers and other genres that use literary creativity.
#dishaliteraturefestival was an event that brought together, under one roof and on a single platform, ideas and written work. It also brought in passionate and action-based reading, story-telling and their imaginative worlds of characters, authors, novelists, poets, illustrators, and not-to-be-missed sessions by film writers and lyricists. People also witnessed the panel discussions on different literary topics that came alive in front of the audience. With a diversity of languages and multiplicity of mediums, #dishaliteraturefestival was a walk through the hardbound and virtual world of literary creativity.
An array of literary stars and emerging authors participated including Soumya Rajendra, Tanushree Singh, Usha Pandit, Rohini Vij, Sandhya Rao, Deepa Agarwal, Nandini Nair, Prabha Ram and the list goes on.
