Riding on the huge success on Season 1, Season 2, of ‘VESIM Literati Fest’ organized by the VESIM students on January 6 & 7, 2017, moved several notches high to reach the pinnacle of success.

The season 2 saw 46 eminent speakers and authors from across the country and multiple disciplines sharing their views. These authors represented different genres of literature like fiction, history, mythology, fashion, governance, entrepreneurship, economics, industry, fitness, politics and represented various areas like corporate, academia, politics, science & business. To name a few – the fest had Neeta Lulla – Fashion Designer, Nina Lekhi – CEO Baggit, Dheeraj Sinha – Chief Strategy Officer, Leo Burnett & Singer – Abhijeet Bhattacharya.

Apart from 4 book launches & 12 panel discussions, the Literati Fest included many fun-filled activities ranging from painting to pottery to book swap. The success of the fest could be seen with its 14 sponsored-partners representing various associations with PETA being the social cause partner.

Hosted by VESIM students, the event marks a new chapter in the literary world where students get at the helm of organizing and conducting a Literature Festival. The whole Literature Festival was student driven. The students demonstrated their managerial acumen at its best – right from holding discussions with the best of brains in the industry to coordination of logistics to ensure the smooth running of the 2-day fest.

The Finale was as grand as the panel discussions with Gala Evening having performances from rock band and artists from SUNBURN Festival “One & One” to get the crowd grooving.
