“Mental health expert and author Shabri Prasad Singh is one of the directors of the festival, which aims to glorify and celebrate culture,” said the organisers.

“These health issues are often brushed under the carpet. Sitting at a desk and working for hours in front of a computer is a norm for Gurugram millennials. But we want them to escape to a world where there is a cohesive culture for reading which helps to release stress and fight any mental disorder one may not be aware of,” Singh added.
