Jaipur Literature Festival


I was fortunate enough to lose my job last month(not exactly) that enable me to attend the 6th Jaipur Literature Festival, held at Jaipur's beautiful Palace turned to Hotel- 'Hotel Diggi Palace' on 24th to 28th January 13. It has not been a very long time since the organisers come up with the idea of starting a Literature Festival at the hottest tourist spot of India; probable they had no idea about the immense success of the function that it enjoy now. 

For me 'Jaipur Literature Festival' is like a Mahakumbh of Literature world where you can find thousands of bookworms from across the world, people with different faces, with different cultures and ideologies. It was a great experience to listen thinkers and authors from various parts of world discussing relevant ideas under the same roof. This year likes of Dalai Lama, Javed Akhtar, Shobha De, Shoma Choudhry, Prasoon Joshi, Shabana Azmi, Rahul Dravid and others attended JLF 13 and shared their views with the audiences and answer their questions. 

Next year it will be held from 17th to 21st January at the same venue to part of probable the greatest Literature festival on earth as advertise.
