Come 28 & 29 April, Indore will host a mesmerizing celebration of literature and art. As readers, writers, authors, bloggers, and artists of various art forms come together to engage, enjoy and absorb from the synergies of creativity, a new chapter will be added to the literary legacy of the city. Indore will once again, play host to some renowned authors who will come to be a part of this exciting event, Coffee with Authors and Artists by Kaffeinated Konversations in association with JustStoryTeller.

The Immersive Project by Kaffeinated Konversations is a unique attempt to bridge the gap between the readers and the writers, the book lovers and the authors, the audience and the performers. It gives an opportunity for passionate young souls to come together and immerse themselves in the celebration of creativity with like-minded people. While being a great opportunity to network for young talents, The Immersive Project is also a great platform to share your views and thoughts about all forms of art irrespective of your age. This year, the Immersive Project has a new format and takes a step further to bring artists and art lover together. Coffee with Authors and Artists puts authors and artists in the same room with the audience as they interact informally over a cup of coffee…and more.

Cabin Monologue

I feel nice. I spoke to my friend after a long time. I don’t understand why he distanced himself over the last few years. We were so close in college. We also got a job in the same company. Both of us worked hard to get where we are today. Our means were different, so were our expectations from our position. Of course, I love my family but I wanted to enjoy the benefits that came with my powerful position. He didn’t agree with me. I guess that was the reason he stopped talking to me. I was really happy to talk to him today but then he started the same old nonsense. What does he mean that it will blow in my face? That I should change? Times are changing, he said. I wanted to shout back at him that nothing has changed and it never will.

Cross Connection is not a book

Yes, you read that right. Cross Connection is not a book. Or, let me rephrase that. Cross Connection is not just a book. It is much more than that. It is a feeling I have lived for last so many years. It is a testimonial of the love of two completely opposite people who decided to come together. It is a tribute to their families with completely different cultures who came together and celebrated this bond of love. It is an ovation to the challenges that these two people and their families faced while adjusting with each other and came closer. And it is a promise that in spite of everything, this cross connection will only grow stronger.
