About Sahitya Aaj Tak
Aaj Tak, the Nation's No. 1 News Channel is back with the 4th edition of its much acclaimed Literature Festival SAHITYA AAJ TAK. The three day literature festival is scheduled for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd November 2019 at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi. The entry for the event is complimentary on registrations.
A confluence of poetry, prose, music and drama, the festival is an initiative to highlight the importance of art and literature in today’s era. The fest brings together a diverse mix of India’s renowned personalities from writers, scholars, authors, musicians, actors, columnists, business leaders, poets and theatre artists on one platform to express their views openly and engage in a meaningful dialogue.
In 2019 the India Today Group is adding to the celebration of the Literary Spirit by organising the English Festival in addition to the Hindi & vernacular stages, which we are sure will promote the language and the writing. With this new addition our focus is not only on Indian writers writing in English but South Asian writers writing in English.
The mega festival will be attended by a host of celebrities such as singers Malini Awasthi, Roohani Sisters, Hans Raj Hans, Anup Jalota, Ravi Kishan, Manoj Tiwari; writers Ruskin Bond, Romesh Gunesekera, Upamanyu Chatterjee, Durjoy Datta, Chetan Bhagat, Anand Neelakanthan, Ashok Vajpeyi; shayars Rahat Indori, Waseem Barelvi, poets Kumar Vishwas, Swanand Kirkire, Udai Prakash; lyricists Manoj Muntashir, Irshad Kamil, Sameer and many others.
