If you’re a bookworm, or if you just enjoy passionate, intelligent company, you’ll love the literary festival held each spring in Jaipur. Started in 2005, the festival highlights world-renowned authors, stars of Indian literature, as well as new writing talent. It’s a five-day event of talks, panel discussions, readings, music, and food held in Jaipur’s historic Diggi Palace. This year, I only caught the last two days of the festival but had a marvelous time and met some fun and accomplished writers. Among the featured writers were Amit Chaudhuri, whose latest novel is titled "The Immortals," Tina Brown author of "The Diana Chronicles," and Shobha De, well-known for her pulp fiction and magazines following the drama of Bollywood's elite.
