“If a dog could speak”, on this theme another scintillating literary session was organised by Belletristic- Shoolini Loves Literature Society. The best three entries of the competition were read out in a virtual session by the selected writers and a big shoutout was given to all the finalists.
The best entries belonged to Ishani, a young 15-year old writer from Loretto, Shimla, Vamya, a 3rd semester student from PU Regional Centre, Ludhiana, and Prof. Pratip Mazumdar, School of Hospitality, Shoolini University.
Though centred on the same topic, all the three stories were completely different in their approach and thought-provoking in their own way.
The session was followed by a quick question-answer round after which Dr Purnima Bali, Assistant Prof. English Department, announced another short story competition for young adults with the pandemic-induced lockdown as its theme.
Prof. Manju Jaidka, HoD, English Department congratulated the winners and announced that yet another book launch would be conducted next Friday in the Belletristic session. The book is a compilation of COVID stories from different parts of the world and is being compiled by two academicians, Manju Jaidka and Nilak Dutta.
