Authors assemble for the dangal of words at LitDangal

Dehradoon.Booknerds, the Doon Valley famed book discussion community, organised the third edition of their widely acclaimed flagship event, Litदंगल, on Sunday. Booknerds Litदंगल is a fun, annual literary challenge where several published authors and poets compete and share the stage with each other to win over the audience with their literary prowess. With record author and audience participation and extensive media coverage in the past editions of the event, Litदंगल 3.0: The Fiercest Literary Battle of Doon Valley proved to be a resounding success with authors and audience alike.
Thanking the Venue Partner Cafe Laata, Booknerds co-founder Rohan Raj opened the session with a brief history of Booknerds and previous Litदंगल editions and welcomed with gratitude the nine poets and authors from across geographies and languages who joined the two hour avant – garde event.
Over the next few minutes, the rules of the contest were explained to all audience members and score cards were shared.
With only seven-minutes to present, Captain Kunal Narayan Uniyal, Setu, Sheryl Pattnaik, Tathagat Anand, Brig Dr Pradeep S Siwach, Rajiv Magan, Vijayshree Vandita, Mrigtrishna and Dr Ruchi Singh delivered masterful performances as they narrated their original works that had the audience hooked throughout the event. While the audience that comprised of bibliophiles, scholars and intellectuals from the Doon Valley had a hard time deciding the winner, Sherly Pattnaik author of ‘The Call to Adventure’ ultimately took home the coveted signature LitDangal boxing gloves between wide applause and cheers.
Booknerds co-founder Neha Raj felicitated all participating authors and the various event partners that brought Litदंगल 3.0 to life, which included All That She Bakes as the Hospitality Partner, Book World, Dehradun as the Bookstore Partner, Hello Institute as the Education Partner, Oho Radio as the Radio Partner and Dehradun.Se as the Outreach Partner.
The event concluded with book signing and author photo ops. Booknerds shall keep on spreading the good word about books in the future as well!
Happy Reading!!!The program ended with a wonderful slogan idea.
