"I got to know more about the interesting side of the stories used in literature. It was really an eye-opening exposure for me, getting to know the literature texts which were came in helpful in school.


This holiday program changed my perspective about Literature which many told me it was a boring subject.


You just need the right person to make the stories come to life."
