D’Souza said the festival would change the literary profile of the Agra region. “All must come together to promote the literary heritage in a positive direction,” he urged.
Speaking on the occasion, social activist Shivani Chaturvedi said that the whole Braj region is a repository of rich Hindi and Urdu literature which needs to be projected at the national level.
IT professional Rakshit Tandon, who has designed tajliteraturefestival.com, said that the website in a book format “is not only attractive but user-friendly”.
