Kashmiri author postpones wedding to participate in lit fest


The extent people go for their love for words. An example is Farooq Shaheen who postponed his wedding to be part of the Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF).

The Kashmiri author says, “After graduating, I had declared to a friend that marriage is not for me and that I am going to dedicate myself to writing. He told me about a girl he knew, and that if I ever set my eyes on her, I would instantly change my mind. That’s exactly what happened. I fell in love at first sight.

“It is a huge festival and an opportunity to represent Kashmir cannot be missed. Both our families are very happy. The wedding will now take place on October 5,” says Shaheen.
