Jhumpa Lahiri at Victoria for Prologue of Kolkata Literary Meet 2014
Lucky me got the passes for the Prologue of Kolkata Literary Meet.
Look how H-A-P-P-Y I am.
And why not be happy? Jhumpa Lahiri was the guest of the day!
Jhumpa Lahiri in talk with Rudrangshu Mukherjee.
Jhumpa Lahiri discussed about her life growing up in different places and how it makes it hard to connect to any single place. She talked about the how she loves reading short stories and novel which make her enjoy both. She also mentioned that the most impact ones were short stories.
After the discussion, Jhumpa Lahiri went inside the gallery of Victoria Memorial. Sadly, its against rule to click pictures inside ( which I got to know after taking some clicks) and hence, I could not get any any pictures with her.
I got all my FOUR books signed!
Happy me at the steps of Victoria Memorial, Kolkata.
PS: This is the first time I ever visited Victoria. Its looks mesmerizing in the evening with all the lights (which my camera did a poor job in capturing). Sadly, it is not allowed for public that late but just because of the event, I could experience its glory.
PPS: Getting passes is a huge trouble. As they say in website that you get passes at gates is not true. I got my passes, thanks to Swarnali.
