Sahitya Akademi Hosts Hindi, Urdu & Maithili Short Story Reading

Parul posted on 21st May

What Is It?

An evening of short story reading hosted by the Sahitya Akademi, we're pretty sure this one is going to be a wonderful one to attend. There'll be stories in Hindi, Maithili, and Urdu.

Who Is It For?

All bibliophiles in Delhi, of course, and anyone who just feels like hearing a really good story or five.

Why Should I Go For It?

It is a rare opportunity to listen to short stories being read out by your favourite authors themselves. Eminent writers Shridev {Maithili}, Saifi Sironji {Urdu}, and Kavita {Hindi} have been invited.

Anything Else?

Tea is available after the programme, and entry is free of cost.


Don’t forget to check out the library and bookshop when you visit Sahitya Akademi. Usually, there are special discounts during events.
