When I got a call telling me that I had the opportunity to host Mountain Echoes, I was more intimated than excited; worried that I might not be able to do justice to the magnanimity of the event. Mountain Echoes is a highly anticipated event, eagerly looked forward to by most Bhutanese people. However, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to fit in with the literary intellectuals. But when I did get to meet the authors, poets and other speakers, and got to talk to them one-on-one, I learned that they are more than just big words and big brains. If I could take one thing away from MC-ing Mountain Echoes 2015, that would be the experience of learning that these so called celebrity writers are more than what they are made to be. ME2015 will always be remembered as the time when celebrities became human to me.
