Day One at Asia’s first non-fiction festival - the India Non Fiction Festival saw interesting conversation and a book launch of MK Raghavendra by Mahesh Bhatt, Rahul Bose, Minissha Lamba. 

“Our country does not have a strong enough political leader to even go up against an Italian housewife”, said Ms. Tavleen Singh at the Inaugural Session of the India Non Fiction Festival. Mr. R Jagannathan said, the theme of Be Bold Stay Real is wasted on Indians as we have to be bold and very real as the survival in our country is an effort for all of us, to which Mr. Kiran Karnik reiterated that in India we have no choice but to be bold and hence stay real while talking about the problem of social sustainability and Prof. Vivek Dahejia added that the country’s youth are bold but they are stymied by institutions which hold them back. During the session For Real, Blogging is Non-Fiction, India’s most popular blogger Ms. Malini Agarwal talked about her essentials of blogging; about respecting your reader, having fun with it and never posting what you would not read.
