The best observations about Karachi Literature Festival on Twitter

The 8th Karachi Literature Festival wrapped up yesterday.

Each year, the annual lit fest sees Karachi's bookworms dedicate the weekend to the written word.

Expectations are always high from the festival — let's see what were the final thoughts of the festival's fans this year.

Some saw an increase in local diversity...

Others noted a lack of international diversity...

Saif Samejo made an important comment about the Pak-India political situation.

There was also this astute observation about Karachi lingo. Why didn't we think of that?

Some appreciated the inclusivity of the festival.

Some pointed out a few crucial lackings.

But this personal account of management fails... is a win!

its good to see people are attending such festivals,, we need to start open sessions about all the topics we want to talk in the society,, open discussion on every aspect of society is very important,,,

In mega city of 20 million people there has to be more cultural events. Karachi has lots of talents, and lots of places to hold these events, what is lacking is perhaps an initiative , finance, planning to make events more often, more diverse.
