Expressing something is not easy for everybody but, everybody has to do this because all humans have something to express. With the same motive, the Department of English of G.L.A University introduced a Literature Club in the year 2015 named ‘Literario.’ This club is all about encouraging students to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions and to build confidence in their creative spirits. ‘Literario,’ the official literary club of GLAU provides platform to get in with the taste of literature. ‘Literario’ is just the right step that gives students stage that is all theirs. It works to invoke the diction of participation and team spirit and gets into the zeal of making its members ready to face the world in terms of communication.
‘Literario’ brings in activities and challenges such as Director’s cut, Instantania, Debates, Discussion Fiesta, Declamation, Quizzes, etc that brush up the literary skills of an individual from the grass root level. ‘Literario’ also works upon inviting various renowned guest speakers from various fields who share inspirational stories, experiences and talks.
To foster and uphold the great literary and cultural background as well as to portray the immense profoundness of literature Brij actually holds, ‘Literario’ organizes ‘Brij Literature Festival’ (BLF) - the first ever Literature Festival in the birth place of Lord Krishna -embodying a rich heritage and a great literary history. BLF is a beautiful initiative in the form of two day celebration to promote and preserve the rich heritage of Brij and that of the nation organizing events like – Literary Talks, Workshops, Film Screening, Book Fair, Cultural Evening, Kavi Sammelan, Story Telling and many more.
This club is now growing towards betterment with its every meet .It has a strong committee of student executive members belonging to various courses and year. Literario is truly a club of the students, by the students and for the students.
