Tata Literature Live! Literary Awards for 2022 Announced

The Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai LitFest closed with a gala ceremony this evening at which eminent playwright Mahesh Elkunchwar, recipient of the Tata Literature Live! Lifetime Achievement Award for 2022 was felicitated and the winners of the prestigious Tata Literature Live! Literary Awards for 2022 were announced.

In a combined “hybrid” version for the first time, virtual as well as on-site, the 13th edition of Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai LitFest was a huge success with 135 authors, 11 countries, 75 sessions, a landmark 9 book launches. The virtual sessions over two evenings have already attracted over 1.5 million views. The Festival was on-site again after two closed pandemic years and delighted audiences surged into myriad riveting sessions at the on-site venues at NCPA at Marine Drive and St Pauls Institute and Title Waves bookstore in Bandra, resulting in overflowing sessions and performances. The Tata Theatre rocked with Usha Uthup ending her session with rousing renditions of medleys of some of her evergreen songs. As she sang – and as we look forward to the Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai LitFest for 2023 – we sing with her “hamey na rokey zamana”!
