"First of all, hearty thanks for taking such a wonderful initiative and passionately sticking to it. This has been a place, a group, where in I long to be present. In the meet today the presence of an authority was in the air, I can just say this. - All the reasons would have proved bad if they ever ruled over my not attending this meet."
Hands down, This was the best meet ever by Bookoholics. The lady in blue, Ms.Rani Dharker is an institution in herself.There was so much we learned from her... But as the saying goes, True knowledge leaves one craving for more,I personally felt longing for more. The time just flew past by us ; admist her book reading and the torrent of questions by the members (which were handled brilliantly by her)But what really held us captive was her charisma and her unflinching honesty!! She spoke her mind without compromising on her sophistication... Hats off to The English Lady!!
The events of the day were aptly interlinked by Shrey and Pinak with their classy hosting ,giving the entire event an holistic feel. I am abundantly proud to be a part of this wonderful team. Every time I return home after a meet, my world changes a wee bit, albeit for the better!! Each meet gives me so much- Knowledge, Sharing, recognition, contacts, great pictures (Thanx,Puja!) but above all, Awesome friends!!!
She highlighted the essential difference between 'literature' and 'mediocre writing' with such subtleness that I couldn't help but admire her. Looking forward to more of such meets, and if possible, reading The Virgin Syndrome.
Now here was a meet that was, after a long time, very different from the rest. Thoroughly enjoyed the reading session. I particularly liked the part where ms. Dharkar read the umbrella paragraph from anurima. Also the question session was very nice. Although not agreeing with all the answers, it was very poised and dignified.
