South Asian Literature - Musings and Conversations

HM Naqvi, winner of the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2011 for his debut novel Home Boy (HarperCollins India) was in India for the first DSC Prize Winner’s Tour during which he traveled to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai. 
The DSC Prize Winner’s Tour 2011 took place between Jul 5 – 7, 2011 in partnership with HarperCollins India and Crossword Bookstore comprising sessions in each city with book readings, conversations and book-signings for the audiences. Planned as a yearly activity, the tour provides a platform for literature enthusiasts giving them an opportunity to meet with the year's Winner of the DSC Prize.
The multi city tour kicked off with a literarily fulfilling first day at the Crossword Bookstore, Kemps Corner, Mumbai. 
Joining the 2011 DSC Prize winner HM Naqvi at the speaker’s table was Mumbai based author and journalist Jerry Pinto. The conversation started with talk of the evolution in immigrant writing from a voice of dreaming to one of spectacle and performance. HM Naqvi spoke of the evolving character and status of South Asians in the emerging globalized societies, describing Home Boy as a story of characters that despite common grounds were evidently individual personalities who were not only protagonists in the book but also in the story of their own characters.
After a wonderfully stimulating session in Mumbai, the DSC Prize Winner’s Tour continued its journey across literary audiences with book reading at the Crossword Bookstore at JP Nagar in Bengaluru. HM Naqvi was joined in conversation by The Red Carpet author Lavanya Sankaran who spoke about the exploding Literature scene in the region and some of the unique facets of South Asian writing and its origins in the deep rooted traditions and styles of the region as well the impressive lineage of English language writers from South Asia.
The three-city tour culminated in Chennai at the Crossword Bookstore, TTK Road, Alwarpet where HM Naqvi was joined by Editor and Publisher Rakesh Khanna of Blaft Publications. Literary enthusiasts in the city had an opportunity to indulge in an intimate session with the two speakers who spoke of contemporary styles in South Asian Writing touching upon new genres like pulp fiction, pictorial novels and novellas etc.
Aimed at bringing forward conversations on South Asian Literature to literary enthusiasts, the DSC Prize Winner's Tour 2011 also delved into discussions on emergent themes in South Asian literature with the audience and the authors talking about ideas of identity, belonging, immigrant time warp and reconciliation as well as celebration of the societies we live in.
During the tour, HM Naqvi emphatically spoke about the DSC Prize describing it as an opportunity that has allowed him to focus on writing his next novel, providing both encouragement and sustenance to his passion for storytelling.
The DSC Prize Winner’s Tour 2011 was the talk of the town and got substantial praise and appreciation from both the media as well as the audience.
