The world’s grandest literary show is back and like me, I know you are also very excited to witness the splendid feast of ideas. Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) is more than just a literary festival for Jaipurites. They wait a whole year for it to happen. They wait to meet their favorite authors, speakers, artists, and actors, they wait for the grand music stage, but most of all, they wait to show off the looks that they had been planning all year!
Here's everything you need to know about the festival that celebrates art, culture, and heritage.
