Chanakya Chaudhary, Vice President, Corporate Services, Tata Steel, said: “Jharkhand has a rich cultural and intellectual heritage with leading personalities who have significantly contributed to Indian literature. The Tata Steel Jharkhand Literary Meet is a signature outreach programme on an intellectual platform that brings leading minds across art and cultural disciplines on one platform to engage with Ranchi’s discerning audience. I am sure this year’s edition will be much appreciated by participants and the audience.”
The highlights of the meet include a special session with Ruskin Bond on ‘the joys of writing Rusty’ based on a semi-biographical character created by him.
Actor-couple Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak will also grace the two-day event and talk about their life journey in films, theater and television at the closing session on the first day.
Dopehri, a dramatic reading by Pankaj Kapur, is scheduled on February 2 at Mayuri Auditorium, CMPDI, Ranchi.
The Tata Steel Jharkhand Literary Meet (JLM) is a signature community outreach programme on an intellectual platform. The response received at the earlier editions of the meet has been very encouraging. As in earlier years, it is expected that this edition would also see an overwhelming participation from the students and intellectuals.
