Prakash, the host of the evening for this meet started the meet with a little introduction to Bookoholics and what we do. And then invited Pinak and Arvind to share their experiences of the Mumbai Literature Festival which they had attended recently.

This was followed by the speakers taking the center stage one by one and presenting their monologues -

The variety in the presentations was refreshing. And also the good part was most of the speakers had specially prepared their talk for the meet. So their views/ideas in the form of their monologues was a treat to be had for all of us present as audience.

All the speakers were absolutely outstanding and were a delight to listen to. We also squeezed in a small segment where the audience had a chance to take the center stage and introduce themselves and tell us what they would want the next Bookoholics meet to be. Following are some happy pictures from this segment -

A fun meet all in all which adds the much needed variety to our #LifeInSurat :)

Already looking forward to the next meet.
