Ghost of Jaipur Lit Fest Past
The Ghost of Jaipur Lit Fest past nudges me as the world and her sister heads towards the Jaipur Literature Festival this weekend.
So why have I not headed over to Jaipur on Friday evening as soon as school finished?
I have things to write, reports to make, reading to catch up on and I’ve made a conscious decision to prioritise. For me books are for reading, for discussing with friends and other like-minded souls and if an author happens to be around, to have a chat with. I wouldn’t go to another city to jostle with the fashionably dressed to listen to an author speak, specially as I may not even have read her books. It does happen you know – there are so many books to read so even in your choice of reading you have to prioritise.
Having said which, Jaipur is always appealing and particularly so at the Lit Fest when the Diggi Palace is all decked out with bright turbans and books spilling out of the hand block print cotton fabric tents.
So why aren’t you at the Jaipur Lit Fest?
