Jaipur Literature Festival – Day Five
News and Events / January 27, 2015

The three of us agreed that the crowd was only going to get crazier next year. Booking a bigger venue could be an appropriate solution. That gripe aside, I would like to thank the organisers for a truly fantastic and well-organised festival.A last suggestion, on the behalf of perennially broke students everywhere, is to make the food at the venue more affordable for all.

Jaipur Literature Festival 2015 – Day Four
News and Events / January 25, 2015

I refuse to believe, after a day spent getting trampled upon, stuck in human jams, elbowed and shoved, that there was a single person in Jaipur who didn’t attend the festival today. The organisers need to take appropriate measures fast to accommodate the growing size of the JLF audience.

Jaipur Literature Festival 2015 – Day Three
News and Events / January 24, 2015

The sessions filling the first slot seemed largely dull so we milled around, looking at the exorbitantly priced things on sale – books, handicrafts, clothes, food. Our impoverished student status firmly ascertained, we headed to Rajnigandha Front Lawns for a talk titled ‘Wanderlust and the Art of Travel Writing’ with Paul Theroux, Charles Glass, Samanth Subramanian, Sam Miller, Brigid Keenan and William Dalrymple.

Jaipur Literature Festival 2015 – Day Two
News and Events / January 23, 2015

Picture everyone looking mildly crazed among a riot of green, blue, yellow tents of varying sizes and striding purposefully to communicate changes (due to the unseasonal rain showers) to co-workers and visitors, many clutching their expensive electronics to shield them from water damage. You now have a fairly accurate mental picture of Day 2 of JLF 2015.

Jaipur Literature Festival 2015 – Day One
News and Events / January 22, 2015

As promised in the account of last year’s Jaipur Literature Festival, I am back here to attend the 2015 installment and faithfully relay all my geeky excitement to IBS readers who aren’t able to do so. With me this year are the same two friends who accompanied me the last time. In the tradition of authorial narcissism, let’s call them Sidekick 1 and Sidekick 2.

Piper Kerman on Orange is the new Black
Authors Exclusive , News and Events / February 4, 2014

Orange is the new Black, an autobiographical story by Piper Kerman, has been making waves since it was published, so much that it was adapted into a Netflix series of the same name recently. Read on for a preview of what Ms. Kerman had to say about her book at The Ohio State University recently.

Devdutt Pattanaik’s talk at Ohio State University
Authors Exclusive , News and Events / October 17, 2013

The Ohio State University was one of the stops on Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik’s 2013 USA tour. The evening of October 14th saw students, both Indian and American, from diverse backgrounds, come together to listen to him. The tag of being a celebrated TED speaker and his innovative designation of ‘Chief Belief Officer’ at Future Group certainly piqued one’s interest.
