TGILF is one of the most ambitious Regional Literature platforms that Amit Shankar has created. 


A nationalist, he believes that literature has an important role in the process of nation-building.


Also, he is a potent advocate of regional literature as he believes that it is the local writing that reflects the soul of our country.


TGILF is a boutique regional literature festival that provides an able platform to the writers, thinkers, and poets of Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Gujarat.


In days to come, it will widen its ambit, reaching out to the writers of other states as well.


This platform also reaches out to schools, conducting workshops, encouraging students to write better. The shortlisted work gets published. 


Driven by the success of its initial events, TGILF is all set to travel overseas.
