Bidding Adieu To Jaipur Literature Festival 2019 Until We Meet Next Year !

Once again the twelfth edition of Zee Jaipur Literature Festival has come to an end. Yet again this year’s festival was an upgraded version of the previous year. Starting off with well-organized things like no on the spot registration for any day thus, resulting in fewer crowds on the weekends and second, putting up the sign boards to guide people with the sessions being held in which area. The rest was the same like dressing up the Palace with colors, Book Store- to buy books that are being launched at the festival, Food Stalls- to munch on your favorite dish and Bazaars- to add more stuff to your closet. Now without further ado let’s talk about the sessions and the speakers and give you a brief summary of what all happened at 2019’s JLF.
