Roots of Odisha Foundation will organise Kalinga Literary Festival (KLF) on 17 May 2015 to celebrate this creative spirit of the city and commemorate the literary diversity it offers, bringing it in conversation with the best minds in the world of literature within and outside Odisha and India. Academics, authors, political and social activists, law makers, government officials, corporate leaders, students and people from all walks of life will immerse in the vibrant atmosphere of the festival and exchange opinions on their favourite authors and works. Several eminent literary and film personalities are scheduled to attend the event.
KLF has emerged as an Annual Flagship event in the cultural calendar of Odisha and our focus is to rekindlethe romance with literature and foster reading and writing, especially among the youth. It offers a national platform with a global appeal and bridges the gap between literature in English and other Indian regional languages.
Kalinga Literary Festival (KLF) acknowledges the important role of other organisations and media houses in hosting such festival in recent years across India. At KLF like last year people from different traditions, regions and cultures will represent the astounding literary diversity of our country. Literatures from different parts of India will complement the regional literature of Odisha and we are hopeful of a creative and productive dialogue between and among literary genres and traditions.
