Testimonials – 2013



It was such a lovely, warm festival. Fun and enriching–everybody fell in love with Prof BN Goswami—you should have seen the faces of the women–in rapture–I could see them from the stage.

Wanted to thank you.

Bhayee Sinkandar Singh and I would like to thank you for inviting us to Kasauli. It was, delightful to listen to so many erudite writers and interact with them. Thank you so much for giving us a chance to discuss our book. The response that we got from the participants was encouraging, and will certainly propel us to continue to do our bit for our heritage.

 My very sincere thanks to you both and all the organizers for inviting me to the Khushwant Singh Lit Fest. It was an honour to participate in the event.

It was wonderful meeting you at the Khuswant Singh Lit Fest. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to participate in the session. Strange Bed Fellows. I had a great time. And i sincerely hope that I didn’t let you down because of my very limited experience as a public speaker.

I would love to be associated with the fest. So next year also do count me in, even as an audience.

Thank you once again.
