There is a huge shout out to all the book lovers, nature lovers and people who love the mountains. The third season of Himalyan Echoes is back which promises you the best place for solace and finding peace with nature. The Himalayan Echoes’ theme this year focuses on environment, conservation, wildlife, sustainable living,cinema, arts, and regional literature, topics which give a lot of scope for deep and impactful talks, while also forging long lasting friendships over literature, nature, art and culture.
The festival will take place on October 6 and 7 where the visitors will not just enjoy story-telling, but can also enjoy bird watching, a photography exhibition, an art installation on waste awareness and a lot more.
This festival is mentored by Namita Gokhale, advised by Anish Dayal and directed by Janhavi Prasada.
Speaking about the festival, Prasada says, “Himalayan Echoes is a niche festival, it’s intimate, it’s inclusive. Our core vision is to expose to the youth of Uttarakhand to - regional, national and international literature, to different dialogues, ideas, things happening outside of the mountain state. Since the technology boom, our reading habits have changed, the millennials are reading differently and literature festivals are attended by readers yes, but also there are the “listeners”. And we want people to come and listen, think, question, argue and act in this pristine setting of the Himalayan foothills where the air is fresh, the sky is blue and the view is green. It’s a mountain festival that is also socially responsible about the environment and conservation.”
