OF CAESURAE AND RACHNA FRIENDSHIP
This Friendship cannot end …
for, ideas are like a travelling caravan for,
visions we shared for,
books we read for,
conversations we had for,
dreams we dreamt …
Rachna Bookstore is the piece of the moon in Gangtok. It is a cozy nook by the side of a waterfall, gazing at the mountains yonder. Inside, the warm company of books and book lovers. With the steering man of Rachna, Raman Sreshtha and wife, Sarvada, book lovers from the world over find a nest to dream, to think, to write and of course read. The smell of hot coffee from ‘Café Fiction’ wafting up, and the conversations of the readers from the ground floor makes you feel at home. Rachna, has always been a home for the elitists, creative writers, artistes and creative thinkers. It’s a haven for all kinds of intellectual chit chats, controversial issues, the university of thinking minds constructively coming together. Caesurae Collective has always been a friend and shall always be. We organized three events in Rachna. A poetry reading session with Rochelle Potkar, a Caesurae poet and writer hailing from Mumbai, and two lectures by Professor Niladri Chatterjee, from Kalyani University on Gender. Besides these collaborative events Caesurae members in Gangtok have always loved to participate in Rachna events.
