Crossing the threshold of its virtually ten-year edition, the Khushwant Singh Literary Festival concluded with Rahul Singh, chairman of the Khushwant Singh Foundation, calling on the Indian and Pakistani prime ministers to hug each other. The request comes after the India-Pakistan T-20 World Cup match on Sunday, where Indian captain Virat Kohli’s congratulatory embrace for Pakistani cricketers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam garnered a lot of attention.
The three-day online festival resonated with the memories and philosophy of prominent journalist writer Khushwant Singh who has always cherished strengthening and promoting the Indo-Pak bond.
On Sunday evening, Amitav Ghosh and Jairam Ramesh had an intense session on the various environmental challenges facing the factory in general and India in particular.
One of the sessions during the event had decorated BBC journalist David Loyn, deliberating extensively on the Afghanistan crisis, also examining the humanistic nuances of Afghan life and scrutinizing diplomatic designs and policies that the United States has articulated on the besieged land. .
