Chairperson’s Message

Surround yourself with...

Chandigarh Literary Society (CLS) was set up a decade ago with the single purpose of taking along like-minded people who would support the cause of promoting literature, art and culture in the region. From a handful, we have become a houseful of literary enthusiasts, writers, poets, singers, speakers, artists and performers. In short, CLS has come a long way since its inception in 2011 and all this has been possible due to the untiring efforts of its team and the love and support offered by benefactors.

CLS has been instrumental in bringing to the City Beautiful renowned authors- national and international, through literary fests, online interactions, book launches and literary events. Budding and aspiring writers are not only given platforms through literary competitions but also due recognition.

As the founder Chairperson of the society, I am thankful to all those who have supported CLS and its cause so far, and look forward to seeing the organisation reach the pinnacle of glory in the coming years.

Thank you for your love and support.
