Katha, a Delhi-based NGO working in the field of education for the past 22 years, has initiated the `Write and Read’ programme to hone the story writing skills in young authors across the country and capture their dreamlands and adventures in a book – Indian Express

Imagine all of Dilli Haat packed in at The Shop Around the Corner from the Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks starrer You’ve Got Mail(1998). The Storyshop is a bit like that. Live Mint, the Wall Street Journal

Do host a North-East writers event and highlight a woefully neglected part of the country as Katha did. The event comes after such movie boo-boos as Tango Charlie that portrayed Bodo militants operating out of Manipur. – Hindustan Times, HT City

For decades now, their stories have gone largely unheard. But this week, the North-East will not just write but also “talk back” as Katha unfolds the mystery and magic of its eight States with the “North-East Writers’ (NEW) Utsav. – The Hindu

The Katha Utsav will give participants a chance to see beyond headlines and media images.- First City

An exciting journey of discovery and celebration awaits writers, teachers, translators and students at the North East Writings (NEW), Katha Utsav that will be held India International Centre from April 27-29. It will be an open meeting ground for established and emerging storytellers of the North-East, as also for teachers, scholars and critics. It aims to promote closer readings of the North East amongst students and emerging decision-makers. – Echo of Arunachal

Thanks to Katha, a Delhi based non-profit organisation working for literacy, literature and education, the region will get to open a window for delhi denizens this April end. Named NEW! Katha Utsav, the festival focuses on writings from the North East, offering a platform to no less than 120 writers, critics, scholars, filmmakers and students through workshops, seminars, film festivals, book releases theatre, a fashion show, a food court, etc., from April 27 to 29. – The Hindu, Metroplus

Every year this slim volume manages to make its presence felt. There is no great marketing hype on its release. In fact there is almost a sacred silence. The Katha Prize Stories, has today come to define a certain standard in regional literature. Along with that it has also become a single showcasing of some amazing translations. This is a volume that takes you on a journey of old and new, good and bad. But this initiative enables sharing and appreciating a rich legacy.- The Hindu
