Spending a beautiful sparkly evening in the city with the richest and oldest Cultural and Literary History amongst some of the most inspiring authors of India, it was an experience to relish. The hall was full of writers, authors, journalists, literary enthusiasts who were excited to witness the extravagant upholstery of creative intelligence being revealed by the Indian Awaz Team. There also were some old parents and young children who were curious to see their loved ones being felicitated for their contribution to transforming life of several through the magic of their pen.
I was overwhelmed to be selected as one of the inspiring authors and what better honour can an author get when they are told that their work has inspired people to see their lives in a new light. The event became more interesting because my friend Nupur Sandhu was also awarded for her literary contribution.
I had never imagined that an event like this could become such a source of inspiration, not only for my life but my writing too. There was so much to learn about people writing in the field of Sci-fi romantic fiction, Cyber Law, Psychology, The art of teaching, Marriage, Parenting and so much more. It was enlightening to hear profound poetry from some authors who graced the dias with an interesting sher or nazm. The whole amalgamation of cultures, traditions, thought processes and writing styles brought so much to the table for everyone to learn from and imbibe in their work.
I am glad I made it to Kolkata since the venue and the beautiful team was cherry on the cake. Sharing some pictures from the event and hope these awards grow leaps and bounds by giving opportunity to more authors & writers to present and get acknowledged for their work.
