A Book Reading hosted by the leading publishing house, HarperCollins India.
Monday, July 27.
India Islamic Cultural Centre, New Delhi.
Monday Blues were there no more when I received an invitation from the pioneer in publishing, HarperCollins India. A Book Reading, it said.
I have attended plenty, I thought to myself. This one was bound to be different, I realised.
Why not, when you have the Wizard of Words to give you company?
The one whose is an enigma of expression.
None other than the legendary lyricist, poet and scriptwriter, Javed Akhtar! :)
|The Stage Was Set. :)|
Meenakshi gave a warm welcome to the luminary in our midst, as he stepped on stage at a punctual 7:15.
Accompanying him, was Ali Husain Mir, who had taken the onus upon himself to translate Sir's writings into English.
|That's Mir, attentive to Meenakshi's introduction, while Javed Sa'ab glances at his writings.|
Javed Sa'ab was thankful to the members of the audience for having taken the time to attend the session.
He courteously laid out a pointer for the audience, though. That was very humble of him though.
