The Booknerds Hangout 33.0 in collaboration with Badastoor at Chathlok Cafe kickstarted with Cardomom performing a set of original and cover songs which left the crowd wanting more.They are one of the few local bands who have varied influences from jazz to blues and many more western influences. After the exhilarating performance the next session was the book launch of Author Anurag Shourie's Half a Shadow.The session was moderated by Rohan Raj, Founder, The Booknerds.
Founder Rohan Raj and Co-founder Neha Raj welcomed the attendees and gave a brief introduction of The Booknerds and the literary initiatives that the community has indulged in over the last year.
Anurag Shourie is a poet at heart, a writer by choice and an anesthesiologist by default. He has degrees in medicine and hospital administration in his kit, but love for the written word in his soul. An ardent Ruskin Bond fan, his hobbies include music and sports which he pursues with equal fervour. He is presently employed with a multinational Clinical Research Organization.
The candid session was truly thought provoking and insightful.
Half a Shadow is India's first medical thriller.
This was followed by a Q & A session where Anurag was peppered with questions regarding his writing style, life as a writer and what motivates him to write.
The session was followed by an Open Mic session where there were performances like Poetry Slam, Stand up comedy, monologues, singing and many more.
The event was a rousing success with an attendance of over 100 literary and art enthusiasts.
The Booknerds will keep on oraganising such events to promote literature, music, art and culture in the valley.
