According to Arshia Sattar, co-founder of Lekhana, “Lekhana 2013 is about bringing writers and readers together to talk to each other about writing and reading. I’m not sure if this is about impact, it’s much more about interaction on a relatively intimate scale. It’s like a yearly family reunion for Bangalore writers, where we can talk about our work, our hopes and our dreams. There are no bigger and smaller stars — everyone is simply a writer.”
