Dipanvita Sehgal’s Debut Novel, A Feminist in the Making was launched on 8th July 2017 at Oxford Bookstore, CP. The event was as glammed up as glammed up can be. For a first Book Launch, triple the amount of estimated guests turned up out of which more than 60% were random visitors and members of Oxford Bookstore and were simply awestruck by Dipanvita’s story’s Synopsis.
Everybody just grabbed seats and sat down to hear her speak and then a roaring applause followed after each and every question that Dipanvita answered in the Q and A round. She linked the idea to current affairs and topics. She explained the unfairness of GST on basic necessities like Sanitary napkins and explained to some readers why Feminism and Tolerance are of utmost importance in today’s sad era and state of affairs. Oxford Bookstore, CP worked as an amazing host, the staff was cordial, snacks were delicious and wonderful pictures were taken for four hours straight. Some of the most famous Bloggers of the city turned up for the show and while they usually listen to the event and go sometimes, Dipanvita’s repartee, well-articulated ideas and superb extempore answers were so impressive that they all took Dipanvita’s Publicist and Manager Nikhita Anil’s (CEO and Co-Founder, MadPro Media) number so that they could contact her to fix interviews with Dipanvita and to invite her for talks, discussions and Career Counseling Sessions.
Many people from the Literati visited and encouraged her and put some amazing and thought-provoking questions on the table to which Dipanvita had the most crisp, concise and witty replies. Many important people visited from Schools and want Dipanvita to drop in to share her inspirational story and to discuss Feminism and Gender awareness with the students. So many strangers walked up to her and said she is very inspiring, took pictures and autographs and hugged her before they left. Dipanvita got late and stayed on at the Store for everybody till 10 in the night because she did not want anybody who wanted to have their copy signed, to go back home disappointed. She patiently answered all the Interview questions and gave due time to everybody around including people who wanted to have a personal chat about life, love and depression with her. Idea Pulp Entertainment made a long cover Video of Dipanvita, of some close associates who had read the book and of new buyers and their inclination to buy a copy. The response was overwhelming from all the quarters. We have a strong feeling that this novel is on its way to becoming a Bestseller!
