Walk the World 2006


Walk the World has one goal – to end child hunger by 2015.

We aim to do this by holding an annual worldwide demonstration across the globe called Walk the World. Once a year hundreds of thousands of people in every time zone will take to the streets to call for an end to the needless suffering of hungry children.

Through this global day of action, Walk the World will raise awareness about the 300 million hungry children in this world. Our call will urge policy-makers and governments – whether in rich or poor countries – to focus more funds and resources on feeding children. These people have the power to improve the lives of children all around the globe.

Walk the World also aims to raise funds to finance projects that assist hungry children. Whether from local companies or generous individuals, we know that every contribution helps to ease the suffering of those in need.

Our efforts are linked closely to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). If we end child hunger by 2015, we will have effectively achieved the first MDG – that of halving the number of all hungry people by 2015.

Join us and become part of a historic fight to end child hunger!

Kitab Festival

The Hindustan Times Kitab Festival will celebrate the impact of South Asian writing in English on the contemporary world, and in turn, the impact of British literature in contemporary India. This extravaganza will provide an unprecedented opportunity to explore and expand the intermingled literary traditions of Britain and India.

From April 7-9, some of the world's greatest and most influential minds will gather in India's capital to discover new talent and debate issues vital to literature, media and development. HT Kitab will also act as fertile ground for wider cultural dialogue - a meeting place for political, social, film and business interests and commentators within New Delhi's vibrant international scene.

Key participants include Amit Chaudhuri, novelist, Nadeem Aslam, novelist, Goldie Hawn, actress and writer, Rana Dasgupta, novelist, Clare Short, MP, William Dalrymple, historian and writer, Tarun Tejpal, author and journalist, Alexandra Pringle, Editor in Chief, Bloomsbury, and Pavan K. Varma, author and diplomat. Editors from BBC, The Observer, The Hindustan Times, Outlook, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Telegraph, The Independent, Vogue, Harpers & Queen, GQ and Tatler will also attend.

How does the South Asian diaspora affect literature in the subcontinent? Has literary criticism died? How do geo-political shifts influence the media? What is a writer's role in the globalising world? Is independent publishing a force to be reckoned with?

Come and explore at HT Kitab, South Asia's first international, chic and meaningful literary and media festival.

Date: 7th, 8th, 9th April 2006
India Habitat Centre, New Delhi
Schedule: can be viewed here.

Entry: "Open to the public on a first come, first seated basis"
