What is Sahitya Sarita ?
A Literature Fest
Sahitya Sarita is a benchmark literary fest organized by LDCE. In many years, this may be one of the very few Literature festivals conducted by a technical institution. Sahitya Sarita is a platform to showcase arts you dive in and feel the joy of each one of them. The sole and main purpose of Sahitya Sarita is to celebrate the awareness of literature, art and culture among the youth and specifically amongst the students of an engineering college.
