The next part of the day’s sessions ‘Halla Bol’, is a platform for some of the best-known writers. ‘Kalam Azad Hai Teri’ or ‘Your Pen is Free’ is a session of novelists Neelima Chauhan, Sharmila Bohra Jalan, and Indira Dangi, speaking on current literature in India, and on their experiences in writing.

Well-known poets, Madan Kashyap, Arun Dev, and Tejinder Luthra will talk about poetry in ‘Kavita ke Bahane’.
