I am from Pakistan, and a big fan of Khushwant Singh, I have hardly left any of his books unread, so very kind of you to make it live-streaming.

What a fantastic festival this is. Intimate, insightful, warm, happy and all of you have been absolutely incredible! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, have come away with so much soul food and camaraderie and most of all, new bonds and rekindled some old ones. Cannot thank all of you enough. Tons of love.-

We have listened to some of the speakers on our I phone who you have invited to the latest lit fest in Kasauli. We both enjoyed the speeches and have been reminded of the impact that Khushwant had on an immense range of writers and intellectuals . Gautam remembers when he worked for your father as he took over the editorship of the Ilustrated Weekly in 1970. Gautam was a beginner and he remembers how encouraging and generous of spirit your father was. He encouraged him to write his first two cover stories even as a trainee. He has nothing but admiration for Khushwant , as an editor and a human being . As do I. Love ,
I was wondering how can I adequately express my Thanks for inviting me to this event. Flawlessly organized,outstanding hospitality care and consideration to each of us. And the brilliant selection of speakers team and I could go on applauding. At my end too I will be sharing with our groups this excellence. Honored to be a part of this. Thank you again.

Dear Niloufer and Rahul Thank you ever so much for making me a part of the wonderful and prestigious Khushwant Singh Literary Festival. It was particularly special for me since it was a green festival with emphasis on ecology and an honour to be in the midst of a star-studded gathering. Your warm and generous hospitality was most welcoming. Thank you both for your care and attention. With my warmest regards

Dear Niloufer, Rahul, Madhur, Ashima and everyone at the Khushwant Singh Lit Fest, Thank you for having me, thank you for creating such an intimate ecosystem for ideas and books and personal experiences full of warmth and a genuine camaraderie. I absolutely loved the three days I was there and they will stay in my head like timeless vignettes.

Now that Aneysha and I have settled back into life in the UK, I wanted to write to you to thank you and Rahul and all the other KSLF organisers for a wonderful experience in Kasauli. The festival was a fantastic combination of topics and speakers - and entertainment too. I was very impressed by how smoothly everything ran - technicals, crowd movement and timings. And on top of that, the very warm welcome and hospitality throughout. We are both interested in becoming involved in the organisation of KSLF London. If that would be useful and welcome, who said we speak to or meet with over at this end?
