Panel Discussions

  • Title Waves Lounge - St Pauls Institute

To be able to speak, think, read, experience thoughts and emotions, in more than one language is an immense privilege which puts so many more colours on one’s literary and imaginative canvas. Although many countries and people are bilingual or multilingual, few literary masters have been able to write in two languages, which, in India, additionally means two scripts. How liberating or challenging is it to have the power of Double Speak?
