Speaking about the festival, its co-founder Dr Shilpa Ramesh Ramani says, "This much-anticipated event will bring various prominent voices that often get obscured in the mainstream noise to the limelight and establish a terrific opportunity to blend inexperienced voices with the fresh ones so that together they become the voice of our time. We are wholeheartedly committed to breaking the regional barriers around the written word and further hope to pave the path for a novel discursive dialogue in literature and arts."

The literary fiesta aims to celebrate powerful pieces of writing that are creating a veritable impact in society, and hopes to empower voices in regional spaces.
