BHUBANESWAR : The National Children’s Literary Festival organised by the Kloud9 and hosted by the KiiT International School (KiiT-IS) began its two-day fifth edition on Saturday.

The festival, first of its kind being hosted by a school, started from 2013 based on the concept conceived by the school’s visionary founder Prof Achyuta Samanta. It is the flagship event of Kloud9, the only magazine for students and managed by students.

Ruskin Bond, chief adviser of the festival, and a galaxy of eminent authors, publishers, storytellers, cartoonists and illustrators, including Prajwal Parajuly, Arup Bose, Ameen Haque and Ajit Narayan graced the occasion.

Arup Bose explained what makes a bestseller and Prajwal refuted the importance of publisher. Haque weaved a magic through his stories while a book reading session by Ruskin Bond stole the show.

The event was also joined by award-winning filmmaker Nila Madhab Panda, showcasing his upcoming film, “Kadvi Hawa”.

“Such festivals instil in young minds the enthusiasm for literature,” opined Prof Achyuta Samanta.
