Beware of capitalism in literature

Capitalism has been taking literature into the market. Only the readers can only stop this growing trend of literature in the market. This was what more or less of what the writers spoke when they met a crucial session of the Guwahati Lit Fest on Saturday.   

Moderated by journalist and writer Prasanta Rajguru, the prolific writers said that literature is one of the reliable vehicle of expressing one’s social commitment and identity.

Award winning writers Ravi Thapa, Arupa Patangia Kalita, Debobrata Das, Rabin Sarma, Bipul Khataniar and Prasanta Kumar Das participating in the eye opening discussion.
