It was great experience for a poet like me to address the very sensible and alert audience of Gatewat Litfest 2017. It was nice opportunity to get introduced, meet, interact with other co-poets, writers, readers, critics and literary-lovers across the country. I still remember the lucid and mind-stimulating flow of reason, thoughts and emotions through various sessions, through formal and informal discussions by various speakers, panelists and participants. Another great endorsement for me was that I could meet our most admirable legendary film maker Adoor Goopalkrishan. I deeply appreciate Mohan Kaknandan and his team for such a well-organised and fabulous fest!
