Oh, To Be in Rajasthan Today

By Edward Nawotka

JaipurLiteratureFestival

The Jaipur Literature Festival starts today and looks to have a stellar line-up of authors, ranging from local celebrities such as Shobhaa De and Chetan Bhagat, to international starts like Alexander McCall Smith and Roberto Calasso. The event, now it its fifth year was co-founded by Indian writer Namita Gokhale and British travel writer William Dalrymple, and is quickly developing a reputation as perhaps the most enjoyable book event in Asia. Not only does the event take place on the grounds of the stunning Diggi Palace, but festivities include readings and talks, as well as literary lunches, children’s workshops and plenty of music performances. It’s too late to book your travel now (or perhaps it’s not, oh you lucky person you), but if you can make it to Rajasthan in time, drop us a note and let us know how it’s going.

PERUSE: This year’s stellar line-up of speakers.

WATCH: A selection of last year’s highlights and presentations.
