STILL LIFE : Hindu Lit for Life Festival and the Winner is .... Jerry Pinto

Well looks like that... last years Hindu Festival had Rahul Bhattacharya was the life of the festival and this year it's Jerry Pinto....

Had an amazing session with stalwarts poets like Mehrotra from Alllahabad, with his impressive collection of poems including Kabir's, new age poetess Meena Kandaswamy and the life of this year's Hindu Festival, Jerry Pinto. Festival started with a period stage act of reading Gandhi's Letters and moved on to the main stream poems, Graphic novels and current hot topic of 'No Country for Women' bringing to the focus the gruesome Delhi Rape of Nirbhaya, where thoughts of Rahul Bose, rose to the occasion and brought sensibility to the discussion...

The festival had its interesting moments, which I have tried to capture in the following images... starting with a video of Performance Poetry, by Meena Kandasamy...

Hope you will enjoy the journey...
