Early Times Report
JAMMU, Dec 16: The members of the literary family from across the country assembled under one roof and mesmerised the audience with dramas, songs, poetry, speeches and literature organised as a part of day long 'Yayavar Literary Festival' at Central University Jammu situated in Raya Sujani, Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory.
The festival was organised by the Director Nupur Sandhu, who is known for her grit and passion for literature and creative arts. The Director is an acclaimed author, film director, speaker and psychologist and leads a team of enthusiastic and committed youth to execute the festival with poise and warmth.
''It was a proud day for the Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory as we made unique mark on the literary map of India through the 'Yayavar Literary Festival' organized in association with Central University of Jammu,'' Ms Sandhu here told.
She added that it was one of its kind escapade, which brought together eminent speakers, authors, artists, bloggers, poets, media squad, policy makers and bibliophiles from all over India under one roof to collaborate and bring forth new insights in diverse areas.
However, with symposiums like ''Love you Zindagi'', ''In search of future: Story of Kashmir'', ''Deciphering Life, making Symphony'', ''Dogri Literature retrospect and prospects'', ''Love, Life and Mystery in narration'' and ''Behavioural and motivational similarities in serial killers'', the audience were glued as speakers shared significant and inspiring experiences while adding flavour and wisdom to the already thought provoking topics.
''The event not only was an umbrella for the elite literati community to express their thoughts, ideas and anecdotes in multiple languages of Hindi, English, Urdu, Punjabi and Dogri with enthusiasts but it also subtly and seamlessly conveyed the inseparability of other forms of expression like poetry, dancing, cinema and emotions from literature,'' the Director said.
Poetry has always been an integral part of our rich cultural heritage and Yayavar was a platform where Ayushman Jamwal, Jaspreet Kaur Phalak, Jagriti Roy, Eisha Gohli, Harinder Cheema and Pankhuri Agarwal weaved words in a rhythm to convey deeper truths in the most impressionable way.
RJ Shwetima Jamwal, Sunny Dua, Akriti Jamwal, Rajat Vohra, Surjit Hosh, Nasir Butt and Ruchhita Kazaria moderated the sessions thus creating harmony and balance in the diverse perspectives.
A splendid Kathak performance, ''shunya mein ananta'', an adaptation of Nupur Sandhu's novel ''Numi: The guarded loop'' by the beautiful Sanchita Abrol, the heart wrenching tale of Meghana Shekhar's survival through Tsunami, the moving account of Fighting all Odds of Dyslexia by Nalin Gupta and the mystery of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's death by Anuj Dhar were enough to ensure the festival left the participants and audience humbled. ''We hope and pray that 'Yayavar Literature Festival' spreads its wings and becomes a revered name in times to come,'' she added.
Distinguished speakers like IPS Danesh Rana, VC Prof Ashok Aima, Commodore DS Sodhi, Neil D'Silva, Dr Kanwalpreet, Utkarsh Patel, IG Retd Johnny Williams, Dr Vandana Sharma, Anirban Bhattacharya, David Devadas, Abhirup Dhar, Aarti Tikoo, Minal Arora, Anuj Dhar, O P Vidyarthi, Dr Sudeep Ranjan Sarkar, Dr Jas Kohli, Ashish Khumbre, Runjhun Nupoor, Vinayak Pattar, Ayushman Jamwal, Payal Jain, Bashir Assad, Dr Sandeep Didi and Jasbeer Singh voiced their views on a whole spectrum of topics.
The festival was held on Friday night.
