Literature is an eternal piece of art and entertainment. It is a true reflection of the human society that has grown tremendously in innovative ways through technologies, lifestyle changes, and evolutions. But what stays stagnant is literature, words, wisdom, and knowledge.
Remember, the ‘Dadi-Nani ki Kahaniya’ think about ‘Chacha Choudhari’, and what about ‘Akbar-Birbal ki Kahaniyan’. All these are the most nostalgic forms of storytelling. What experiences these stories used to instill within? Values, belongingness, learnings, and respect for each other. The same goes even today just the concept and stories have transformed. From the old stories to the modern day storytelling sessions, Dadi-nani has been replaced by smartphones, tablets, eBooks, Kindles, and Wattpad. Moreover, personal interaction has been taken over by virtual communication. So much has changed and evolved but literature shines on. Isn’t it?
What actually is literature? It is nothing but just a form of expressing our thoughts and beliefs. Whether you consider writing poetry, whether a form of blog, storytelling, fiction, non-fiction, experiments, and even varied forms of art, everything is literature. Now, let’s get into understanding the importance of literature:
With so many benefits, it is evident that literature is important but to connect in the modern day is a challenge. But need not worry, there are many lit fests happening across and beyond the boundaries to keep the flame alive. OCLF Nagpur is one such literature festival in Central India that brings abundance of speakers with different interests on the same platform. The only objective is to keep the essence of literature alive.
