23-24 जून को सम्पन्न हुआ ‘शिमला इंटरनेशनल लिटरेचर फेस्टीवल’ यानि ‘शिमला साहित्य उत्सव’ एक ऐतिहासिक पहल रही। यहाँ मंच पर भागीदारी करते हुए मैंने पाया कि शब्द और विचार साथ-साथ भी थे और आमने-सामने भी।ये उत्सव आगे बढ़े और हर साल फले-फूले।स्वाति शर्मा और विभोर को बहुत बहुत बधाई और शुभकामनाएँ ।

I loved the curiosity in the audience at the Shimla Lit Fest. They had so many questions and wanted to know so much. Also, the venue, the Gaiety Theatre, with a panoramic view of the mountains, was amazing.

Hats off to Team Vibhor for pulling off this feat with such aplomb. It was pure delight to share the stage with stalwarts from the fields of literature, cinema and politics, and the conversations were enriching to say the least. Shimla Lit Fest is off to a spectacular start, and I hope it grows in scale and magnitude every year.

It was fantabulous to witness the creatively charged Shimla International Literature Festival in its first edition itself. The vision of the organisers and their passion to translate that into reality is commendable. Love and wishes.
