With the negativity and controversies coming up as every edition of Jaipur Literature Festival starts, one thing is sure to get stuck for once as you don’t know whether it’ll happen or not. This year also started with a sad note on a controversy and you never know that 10th Jaipur Literature Festival will take place at Diggi palace or there will be a shift in the venue. If in any case the venue is changed, some things which will definitely be missed about Diggi palace are –
- Running into people we know
With people from all genres sharing a common platform, may it be an actor, minister, writer, photographer – Diggi Palace offering a small ground you may bump into someone you have never dreamt of 😉 But you never know whether the new venue will offer the same opportunity or not!
- Free Registration
Hosting to Asia’s largest literature festival, the Diggi palace gives the venue to attend the festival free of cost. Purchasing a ticket to attend the festival is not valid here and this is one of the greatest things that you see lakhs of people enjoying the festival in its true sense.
- Diggipuri Chai
The Diggi Palace is sure to have one specialty at the festival to attract more tourists to enjoy some ethnic experience, and that one thing of Diggi is its Diggipuri Chai 🙂
- Parking hassle
Even though the venue is centrally located, one major problem which everyone faces around this area is parking. Competing to park your car first is always fun, but even if there is dirt and garbage or a small space available, you’ll always try to adjust and accommodate in that small little space 😉 And after parking you feel free of this one headache that you drove down till the venue! Won’t you miss this parking competition at a new venue?
- Central Location
Centrally located in the beautiful Pink City, Diggi Palace is easily accessible from any nook and corner of Jaipur. Hotels, hospital, cafes, you name any facility, Diggi Palace is surrounded by all of them from around. Start thinking from now on as you never know whether Diggi Palace will remain the venue for the next JLF edition 🙂
The most awaited event of the year and which also marks the colorful start of the new year 2016 – Jaipur Literature Festival is finally here ! Although ‘Literature’ is the quintessence of the name as well as the festival, but just in case you are not a vehement literature enthusiast, we must tell you that there are a lot more things in store for you at JLF 2016.
- FashionIt’s no news that it’s one thing to get up, dress up and go to work/college/school, and it’s one thing to get up and get dressed to attend JLF, because ‘what if you run into some chic batch mate or a judgmental colleague there?’ So watch out for some people setting the fashion trends for 2016 and you dress your best at JLF 😉
- FoodWhen you enter Durbar Hall, starting from scrumptious looking bakeries to Chai & snacks, you name a dish and you will find it at JLF, and that too in a wide variety ! If you are a new venture, make sure to have your stall at JLF next year as there is no better place to come into notice like this.
- MusicMusic is another thing which has come up excellently as a separate event at JLF for which the music aficionados fly from various places to Jaipur just to listen to their favorite genres of the melodious music festival.
- Rajasthani CultureEach year, a new theme marks the onset of JLF and the ambiance which is splattering with hues and jollity, every year finds some innovative ways and elements to fill up the visitors with awe and locals with pride for the vivid culture of Rajasthan.
- ShoppingWith JLF’s official merchandise store selling interesting things like their own mugs with the quotes of this year’s speakers, handmade notebooks, t-shirts, bookmarks, scarves etc and giving them away in the recycled newspaper bags, there is a lot to look forward to for a shopaholic and a souvenir lover to remember JLF by. Apart from these, you will find really good books and Rajasthani kurtis, jootis, postcards etc.
- SelfiesWe know you don’t need to read this blog to know about this extra luxury 😉 With the beautiful decorations and backdrops, your selfie mania will see a jovial boost at JLF 2016 😉
- NetworkingDiggi Palace being a not so huge venue for JLF, there are very high chances that you might run into old friends, new friends, colleagues and even speakers for that matter. So rekindle bonds and probably find someone to have a healthy discussion with 🙂
- Diggipuri ChaiDid you know that Diggipuri chai at JLF at Diggi Palace is one of the major attractions at JLF ? No? Then try it this time and you will know why 😀
- Ride in colourful autosThe colorful autos with intriguing designs oozing the vibrant Rajasthani culture are standing right outside the venue to make your experience at the over crowded JLF easier 🙂

So pick up your bag and visit JLF !! 😀
