Strengthening the bond between literature, people, and culture, the second edition of The Dehradun Community Literature Festival (DCLF) is all set to kickoff with its curtain raiser event in Dehradun on March 25. Newsd is digital media partner for DCLF, which is going to be held from April 19-April 22 in Dehradun.

“Literature connects culture and people. It has been our constant endeavour at WIC India to promote various arts, culture, and literature in the valley of Doon. The 1st edition of DCLF in April 2016 was a humble start and this year with the 2nd edition we intend to give much more to the residents of Dehradun – finest literature, national and international speakers, some much exciting names from Bollywood and a world class experience at the festival,” says Mukta Khandelwal, vice-president of programmes and events, WIC India, Dehradun.

To kickstart the festival, the curtain raiser event will launch Ustad Amjad Ali Khan’s book ‘Master on Masters’. The sarod maestro’s book is deeply personal, which pivots around the lives and times of some of the greatest icons of Indian classical music. The launch and signing of the book will be followed by discussions. The second chapter of DCLF will be celebrating writers from across the nation, hosting a panel of some of the finest speakers and authors of various generations, namely: Devdutt Pattanaik, Kavita Kane, Nandita Haksar, Rana Ayyub, Jatin Das, Karan Johar, Gurucharan Das, Omkar Goswami, Sudha Menon, Dr. Saif Mehmood, Roshen Dalal, Naina Lal Khidwai and many more.

The capital city of Uttarakhand becomes a natural choice for the event. “With this edition, the winds, the spring, the trees and the flowers of Dehradun valley will become one with the world of global literature, and we hope that this will establish Dehradun as a leader and key agent of change in leading the modern literary world,” says Nazia Y Izuddin, president, WIC India, Dehradun. Rishi Suri, editor, International Affairs, The Daily Milap, which is the litfest’s Urdu partner says, “This region is full of historic educational institutions, great writers and thinkers. It’s been a learning experience and an absolute delight to meet and learn from the amazing residents of Dehradun and around.”
