The Times of India Literary Carnival

Wondering what we did after Mind Blogs 1.0 in 2010? Well, in January 2014, we organised The Times of India Literary Carnival. We had 55 sessions with over 120 writers/anchors/speakers/journalists.

It was a three-day marathon that took us three months to organise. And that we heard is a record of sorts. We are told that people usually take a year to plan an event like this. By we, I mean: Zahid H Javali and Nirmala Govindarajan, the two co-authors of Mind Blogs 1.0. We were the festival directors.

If you are keen on what happened, here is the website that gives you all the stuff you would need to get an idea of it. Click HERE.

Missed it? Not to worry. Take a look at this video summary to get a glimpse of what transpired. Happy viewing!

Watch Out for the Weirdos!

BY GUEST BLOGGER DEEPTI MENON Dante’s Inferno could not be more chaotic, I muse! Our car crawls along on a surface, choc-o-bloc with vehicles, bumper to bumper in four wavy lanes, originally meant to house two orderly lines, ‘orderly’ being a misnomer, of course! The signal glints red, and before it turns ochre, buses start blowing their horns frantically, noisily…

‘Warm, funny, relatable’

This October, Mind Blogs 1.0 completes three years of being in circulation. And true enough, it has been loved and appreciated across age groups. But what we really wanted were youngsters reading it. And just the other day, we came across a young blogger who read the book while his exams were on, and found them immensely enjoyable. The blogger…

Guest blogger Piya Jayarajan on finding serendipity

I remember having gone to his house with a box of sweets on that same day, but to my disappointment I could not meet him. The…
