Since 2006, the Pink City of India has been hosting the Jaipur Literature Festival every year in the month of January. It is like a mehfil of like minded people that come from all walks of life - politics, media, religion, business, architecture etc. They share a common bond - a love for literature.
Its a beautiful platform to show case, and consume different forms of prose, poetry, and language. Every year there's a new theme and big personalities come and be a part of this celebration of ideas and creativity including The Dalai Lama, Gulzar, Shashi Tharoor, Javed Akhtar etc. There are speakers, writers, authors, poets, book publishers, opinion leaders and the venues are usually Rajasthani palaces and havelis.
There are multiple tours in and around Jaipur at this time, and the city is flooded with quality visitors. The schedules are pre announced so one can often plan their trip accordingly.
Apart from this, there is performing arts, debates and elocutions in which there's a lot of out-of-the-box thinking. There are various competitions that everyone can participate in!
Whether you're a novelist or a thought provoker, a photographer, videographer or just an audience that enjoys a mellow week, JLF is the place for you! There's culture intermingling, as over 10,000 people arrive from all parts of the world.
