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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With over 240 attendees, this year’s Jaipur Literature Festival promises to be an engaging experience for all literature lovers, book fanatics, and even those who just want to get their pictures clicked with the literary hoi polloi….
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.
Booker fever has started! On October 15, a panel of judges will choose the best of English language fiction, from a list that has been called the best in a decade. The competition is tough! Which of these novels are you rooting for? Who will win the Man Booker 2013 prize?
