During these pandemic days, when people from all corners of the society have become helpless to an unseen enemy, the mankind as a whole has weakened mentally. We at VIBGYOR feel that the mental health is equally important to the physical health. And our way of boosting the mental health is ART. In this process, we have left no stones unturned, even in the hard times, and tried our best to keep you all connected with art, so that your mind remains refreshed and mental health is improved.
Moving ahead in the same direction, we have though of opening up a new innings. Generally, all our endeavor revolves around photography, fine art and heritage. During the last year’s lockdown, we took a baby step in literature with IRSHAAD. We were truly overwhelmed with your love and support. This gave us a lot of inspiration and phenomenal courage.
To keep the excitement and encouragement alive, this year we would like to take a deep immersion in the field of literature. Its time for all of our favorite authors, starting from J K Rowling to Dan Brown, to Chetan Bhagat or Amish Tripathy. History stands witness of the fact that back in their young days, none of them had the same popularity as they have it today. But one point is common for all of them. Even then, they all had their own style and power of expression strongly embedded in them.
Similarly, there are quite a few young authors in today’s date, who can also create a magic with their pen, their ultra-new imagination and their connect with society. Their thought process brings freshness to the world of literature, that we are habituated to.
VIBGYOR wishes to introduce some of those authors to you. These authors will have candid live chats with you about their work and much beyond that. This is going to be a pure discussion about literature based on the books written by these authors, and an experience that you would love to have.
So, welcome to VIBGYOR Kitabnama, live webinar discussion sessions with young authors of India and beyond.
