his year, from the people who brought you Banoo Main Teri Dulhann, comes another reason to surround yourself in an unnecessary amount of drama – the Jaipur Literature Fest. At the “Greatest Literary Show on Earth Without Enough Restrooms” expect to be treated to the fine musings of some of the most talented authors, poets, journalists, and PR people the country has to offer. Snark at the quality of the wine as you try and remember the name of a Charles Dickens book that isn’t Oliver Twist. Run your hands through hundreds of novels that are soon going to be made into movies anyway. This is the OG lit fest, where oversmart authors are threatened by fringe groups, and quizzed by oversmart people with fringes.
