Pune Litfest 2016
Caught the fag end of the Astrology workshop and found it quite interesting, specially the slide on how to handle different Zodiac signs. Cancerians are insecure, Librans are indecisive…hmm. Saggi with let them be free and Leo- flatter them, were no surprise
Enjoyed the exercises on writing like trying to connect 4 images. Might do that as more of a practice, it was helpful and new. Forces you to be more detailed.
Liked the Books for Bricks stall by CRY on the lawn and the Enid Blyton exhibition too.
Also surprisingly enjoyed the session on crime. Want to read Helen Smith- her woman detective sounds interesting. Mr. Kumar’s real life insights in the CBI and crime fighting was the stuff thrillers are made of.
The poetry slam session was OKish. Liked one poet who performed about salsa and flirting. The exercise on 5 things you hate was revealing though.
I like the intimacy of this festival, with the workshops. That’s something JLF doesn’t have.
