“If 2020 was a tough year, 2021 seems to have brought with it the heavies of tough. Literature Live! has borne the loss of two beloved people: our Founder & Festival Director, Anil Dharker and Executive Director, Shashi Baliga. Their roles in Literature Live! are immeasurable. The only way we can honour the legacy they have left behind is to continue with the festival as they would have wanted us to. And so, despite the pandemic the show will go on. Keeping in mind the unpredictability of COVID, this year too will be a fully digital festival, with sessions streaming live on all Tata Literature Live! platforms, as we did last year.”
