What a superb lit fest!
I have been to literary festivals from California to Paris to China and have never enjoyed one or learned so much as I did here in Mumbai. The loveliest literature festival in the world.
The result for me — and for all the participants — was a very happy engagement with a Festival which is respected and envied around the world.
The festival was a very happy occasion for me and I was deeply touched by the generous reception I received from the audience. From the moment we arrived at the airport we were looked after so well by everyone. I must congratulate you on the wonderful way you ran the festival.
We had a wonderful session—my index always is: “How much did the audience laugh?” And they DID laugh—a lot!
Something in the air prompted writers to be splendid.. I hope you are as happy as we were. Thank you for helping to make my first visit to India so glorious.
Take a bow, all of you! I know how hard the team worked to make the 9th edition of the LitFest such a huge success! Here’s to the next and the next!
It is a memorable event for me, not only for the surprise award (Business Book of the Year), but the energy, vibrancy and diversity that dominated the ambience.
Congratulations on an excellent festival. The sessions were really fun to take part in, and to attend.
Thank you for inviting me to be part of this fabulous event. I had the best time; it was such an honour to participate.
The Tata Lit Live in Mumbai is truly a wonderful Lit Fest and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was fabulously curated and organised.
