The power of words is greater than that of any weapon. This was rightly proved by Ms. Saumya Kulshrestha, who started the day with an awe-inspiring and interactive session on the importance of creative writing and the various aspects of the same. She motivated our budding participants on how to express in a more influential and effective manner.
The second session was taken over by Ms. Neha Thureja, who enriched the knowledge of the attendees by sharing valuable information about the various writing forms prevalent in today’s world and how these can be nurtured. Her session was an eye – opener for all. Using examples, she explained the beauty of creative writing- how words envelop a person to a utopia altogether!
After the exhilarating sessions, a panel discussion was organised. The topics for discussion revolved around creative writing; the most crucial topic being the relevance of creative writing in the 21st century. The panel comprised of eminent personalities- Ms Diksha Bijlani, Mr Puneet Kusum and Mr Tauseef Ahmed and was steered flawlessly by Ms Shiva Singh. The discussion taught the attendees not only about the importance of creative writing but also the art of public speaking. Our panellists surely left the participants mesmerised!
The last event of the day was the most awaited one- the Felicitation Ceremony. This ceremony was the culmination of our 10-day long online writing campaign “Wordsmith”. The worthy and appreciable selected participants of the campaign were felicitated by our mentor Dr Shashi Shekhar. Those who could justly speak out the feelings of their heart through the pen were chosen after deliberation and discussion by our esteemed panellists. The event ended on a high note and the attendees were happy to learn so much about Creative Writing- an art that lives with us forever!
