Times Lit fest, Bangalore - Day 2

Day 2
I went early to catch George's session. Nisha sent me a pic. Yesterday's session got some press.
For the love of the game!
I happened to chance upon the Om Swami session for a bit. Appupen's session was very entertaining and interesting. It was titled Graphic Narratives and he had Arjun Gaind and Ramya Ramakrishnan for company.
Ramya, Arjun and Appupen (George)
George was quite happy to see his graphic novel 'The Snake and the Lotus' being displayed at the Festival. We took a picture. I bought a copy to support the tough world of graphic novelists. Amazing work.

We went and attended the session about Anita's new novel 'Eating Wasps' with Prayag Akbar. Anita spoke honestly and gave some detailed inputs about her writing process. For any aspiring writers there were plenty of tips.

At 3 pm, I went with George to Koshy's for a spot of lunch. For old times sake. Dropped George and returned to meet Nisha who had come to the festival.

Packed up at end of day and headed home. Flight is at 1010. Feeling the lag.
