Renowned authors and poets like Anuja Chauhan, Sudeep Sen will come together to discuss the quintessential spirit of various known as well as unknown languages at day-long Language Festival at Oxford Bookstore on Saturday. The main objective of the event is to make works in these progressively obvious and available to a larger section of readers.

The event will be devoted to translations, with writers and publishers of Hindi, English, Spanish, French and Urdu books sharing knowledge about various dialects which are translated or will be interpreted in not so distant future.

Chauhan who has written bestsellers like The Zoya Factor, Battle of Bittora, will be under the spotlight as to the interpretations of her books with a group of panellists in discussion with Sudha Sadanand.

Furthermore, sessions like 'Urdu into English: What readers want' with prominent publishers will shed light on the requirements of ardent readers and their requests, which is an important aspect that needs to be addressed. 'Unscripted: The dynamics of Oral Traditions' will be founded on the overlooked dialects and other tribal or rural languages which are either never documented or are still to be known.

The festival will conclude with launch of the French Book, Incarnat, translated in English. A Hindi play, Biscay Ka Behroopiya, which has been translated from a Spanish play will also be performed by Octave Foundation.
