Dear All Esteemed Authors
12.15 to 1 pm Saturday 12th Nov. Session 3: Looking For Literature: Is it in words around us? ( Raghuveer Chaudhari, Sandeep Nath, Abnish Singh Chauhan, Usha Narayanan Moderated by Nigam Dave)
Brief Synopsis :Generally anything spoken, performed or written to convey a meaningful message with a lasting impression, which can also express the culture, tradition and attitude of that time, is considered ‘literature’. In ancient times, literature was carried forward to the next generation through word of mouth communications and we can find those spoken words around us even today in the form of sayings, proverbs and performances and folklore. Today, literature is available in the most prolific way in myriad forms.
Moderator’s Line of Discussion: Nigam Dave
