Animated discussions, book signings, drama and music... The Hindu Lit for Life 2014 had all this and more. The air was abuzz with words and ideas in both Chennai and Delhi as well known authors like Dr. Abraham Verghese, Naomi Wolf, Jim Crace, Samantha Shannon, Ira Trivedi, Rana Dasgupta, Sam Miller, Ashwin Sanghi, Shovon Choudhary, Amandeep Sandhu and Manu Joseph took to the stage to discuss -- among other things -- the growth of new urban spaces and the need for conservation, feminism, environment, theatre, the craft of writing, politics and elections, filmmaking etc. In Chennai, the festival culminated with Anees Salim winning The Hindu Prize for Fiction 2013 for his novel Vanity Bagh. In Delhi, author and stand-up comic Anuvab Pal had the audience laughing at our foibles with a comic monologue satirising everything ridiculous yet endearing about Indians.

The Hindu Lit for Life was held in Chennai on January 11, 12 & 13 and in Delhi on February 8.
