Agra, Feb 13 The 49th SAARC literature festival commenced here Friday amid sprinkling of rose petals in Yamuna water and eminent poets from the eight member countries reciting poems on the first day.

Over 150 poets, writers, scholars and artists are participating in the deliberations to be conducted over four days in this city of Taj Mahal at the hotel Grand.

Speaking at the inaugural session, Jansatta editor and veteran journalist Om Thanvi pointed out though people talk and swear by Mahatma Gandhi, there was so much tension and hatred all around.

He said the nexus of criminals and those in authority was a matter of serious concern. Against the current depressing scenario it was necessary that creative writers, artists and activists recognise their crucial role and the need for intervention.

Writing alone would not help, if there is need they should all come out on streets and raise their voice, he added.

SAARC literature festival organising committee’s chairperson Punjabi writer and novelist Ajeet Cour, on this occasion, said the literature festival brought people together and helped bridge the communication gap.
