Disha Literature Festival: 7th & 8th, 2020

About NLK Group:

NLK Group was founded as a path-breaking initiative to make quality education accessible to the children from the lower end of the economic strata. The envisaged group of institutions came into being at the turn of the century and with it started a movement of educating the children for the challenges of the new century. Children are nurtured and their potentialities are honed in the caring and progressive educational ecosystems of the schools of the NLK group.

Schools of the NLK Group are co-educational and secular institutions with over six thousand students from the city of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. The Group is helping the nation harness the demographic dividend that would have suffered due to the lack of opportunities among the middle sections of population.

The School works along the lines of the globally accepted educational motto "We teach how to think, not what to think". The challenges of the dynamic nature of knowledge and changing scenarios of the industry and society are met successfully by the students of NLK Group of Schools as they are educated with matching dynamism.

About Disha Literature Festival: FEBRUARY 7th & 8th, 2020

VENUE – NLK Academy, Mandhana

This year, Disha will host the second edition of DISHA Literature Festival at NLK Academy, Mandhana.

Disha Literature Festival is a big step towards nurturing the love of reading in children from preschool to grade school, which will be held on 7th and 8th of February 2020 for free of cost. The tagline of the festival – "The Dream We Carry" is inspired by the beautiful lines of Olav.H.Hauge.  These words are not to explain about the benefits of reading also not to elaborate about why reading is important? But the dream of having reading as fun, reading is fearing nothing, reading is loving, reading is dreaming the impossible… The dream that we carry is not just to be used for the event.. but  the dream is to evoke the love for reading, to make them understand that today's readers are tomorrow's leaders.

The two-day festival will bring authors, artists, parents and children together under one roof and provide an opportunity for our children to engage themselves in interesting reading sessions, story-telling workshops and sessions. The authors will talk about the world of books and its place in children's debates. There will also be a book exhibition on both days of the festival in collaboration with publishing houses.

It will be weekend packed with engaging book reading and storytelling life.

There will be panel discussions with established Indian and International authors and thinkers. Debate sessions will also be held to widen the aspect of Reading or Why read? Book Launch of the inspiring authors from Penguin books will happen during the event.

This is a platform for young readers, parents, writers and thinkers to immerse in conversations on literature and to help develop good reading habits in our children to create learners of tomorrow.
