Summer of 2016, Gangtok. My reading at Rachna Books.ac
(I know I will be back again into the quaint hills, the breathtaking view of the Teesta river, and to Cafe Fiction, with my next book.)
This event was jointly organized by Rachna Books, Caesurae.org & Jayita Sengupta.
Jayita speaks: “Thanks Raman Shresta, for the video. We had made some lovely memories that summer of 2016, in Gangtok with Rochelle Potkar coming over to Sikkim, staying with me and my students in my home there and conducting a lovely workshop on haiku and haibun and reading her works at Rachna. Students had presented a musical version of Meghbalika with Nandakishore Das on the violin, Snehshree singing, Gaurav on his guitar, who’d come from Mirik at once if it had to do something related to music and not his thesis! Dear Nikita with her reading of the English translation of Joy Goswami’s poem was too good! Creative moments in Gangtok will always be cherished Raman. Rachna memories. Now we are all in different places, hope we could be together again someday sometime at Rachna again.”
