The literary festival opened with the session “How can Nepal progress?” (Kasari Banla Nepal) with moderator Sushil Sharma and panelists CK Lal, Swarnim Wagle and Pradeep Giri discussing the burning issues that are holding Nepal’s development. Many more amazing sessions took place on the 1st day including Richa Bhattarai talking with the writer couple, Tishani Doshi and Carlo Pizzati, a session on social media and other sessions kept the audience glued to their seats and eager to ask questions.
Overall, it was a great start to the annual literary fiesta though the rain did cause some interruptions. The Ncell Nepal Literature Festival is always the highly awaited literary event of the year.
