'Raman from Orissa, writes screenplays for B-grade movies in Mumbai to make ends meet. When what he set out to do was write and publish a book.'

'Sahil from the slums of Dharavi, will never read Raman's work even if it gets published. As he can't afford something as simple as a book.'

'We're trying to bring the two disparate worlds together.'

‘The world’s largest public library.’
The Telegraph

#STICKLIT is an initiative by a network of artists and writers. We’re creating THE WORLD'S LARGEST PUBLIC LIBRARY (in public spaces) to make good literature and art more accessible to the common man. Using free-format stickers, posters, wall murals, etc. In essence, we’re creating a free-world for writers and readers. Just the way it should be.

We run on blood and passion. But to make posters, it takes money. So we're reaching out to the creative community to help us with a fundraiser. Not in terms of money. But by contributing an artwork (autographed). Salman Rushdie, Shashi Tharoor, Yuko Shimizu, Malika Favre, among others, have been kind enough to contribute. And we're thankful for it. Do write to us if you'd like to contribute or purchase an autographed print. sticklit@outlook.com

This book, The Legacy of Nothing, is an offshoot of the project/initiative #sticklit. It features stories (fictionalised) of people I met while on the streets across India.
