There are tens of thousand of festivals world wide, but few make a profound impact to its fans. Some die a natural death. Some look like replicas of some other festival. Some are well organized and are in the league of its own a league of creativity and originality and you can tell that the works done by the organizers are top-notch.
To fans in a festival setting it’s like a picnic. You want to have a good time with your friends in that crowd. And in the background you hear the band play, ‘Oh, that’s my favorite song!’ everyone is there to enjoy the afternoon and that’s about it.- Tom Araya

From September 21 to 26 we will breathe another form of creativity. As I prepare for the celebrations of the festival I can’t wait but imagine what we are going to witness. Women,Wine and Words is one event to witness at the festival,as talented ladies will be on stage.
The festival is not all about theater, dance and music but it also offers a chance for literature students to watch the set books their read in class being turned into real masterpieces on stage by young energetic performers whom I can term as moving literature texts.
During the festival students may come and revise and understand their text before crucial exam time which will be only weeks away.
