The Jaipur Literature Festival, famously known as ‘greatest literary show on Earth’, is all set to return for its thirteenth edition from 23rdto 27thJanuary 2020. The five-day literary extravaganza promises to bring together a line-up of exemplary speakers from India and across the world at the historic Diggi Palace.
Jaipur Literature Festival is a sumptuous feast of ideas and the past decade has seen it transform into a global literary phenomenon having hosted nearly 2000 speakers and welcoming over a million book-lovers from across India and the globe. For five days, the Pink City is infused with enthusiasm, a riot of colour and infectious energy as literature and art-enthusiasts flock to Jaipur for the Festival. During the Festival days, there are endless places to see, and things to do, some of which include insightful sessions and an exciting and buzzing carnival encapsulating a bookstore, food stalls, a bazaar along with artists at work, and multiple parties hosted on the Festival’s fringes.
Here are some reasons why you would not want to miss out on the thirteenth edition of the festival.
Listen to some of the greatest minds of the world
Jaipur Literature Festival hosts some of the world’s best literary minds and brings them together for several panel discussions and interactions. Experts from diverse fields such as literature, economy, environment, food and science take the stage for stimulating and thought-provoking conversations. Eminent speakers such as recipient of the 2010 Man Booker Prize Howard Jacobson, Pulitzer-winning authors Stephen Greenblatt and Dexter Filkins, celebrated culinary expert Madhur Jaffrey, acclaimed author Elizabeth Gilbert, and leading Indian film director Vishal Bhardwaj, are amongst the first few announced speakers at the Festival for the 2020 edition – so be there to be a part of some life-changing and inspirational sessions!
Book-signings and an opportunity to meet your favourite authors
For all those literature enthusiasts who have spent days glued to books, turning one page after another captivated by the magic of a well-written novel- the Jaipur Literature Festival offers the perfect opportunity to meet your favourite authors in person. Besides attending noteworthy sessions and witnessing book launches, the Festival also has book-signing kiosks at all venues where you can grab that rare signed copy and earn bragging rights!
Art, Culture – Memories Galore!
In addition to being a platform for conversations related to literature and books, the Festival also gives the opportunity to its visitors to experience various forms of art and music. From fascinating art installations to beautiful backdrops for the perfect Instagram shot- there is something for everyone. Dance and music performances make the Festival even livelier. For shopping enthusiasts, the annual Festival Bazaar is a must visit as several craftsmen, designers and entrepreneurs display and sell a vast array of hard-to-resist collectible items. Amongst the many things to be bought are embroidered shawls, exquisite minakari jewellery, funky stationery, edgy accessories, spiffy footwear, and exciting home décor.
For those passionate about music, the Festival begins each day with the calming strains of Morning Music. The stage will be graced by acclaimed artists such as BC Manjunath, an exponent of Konnakoland the mrindangam; sitar maestro and recipient of the President’s Award for the best instrumentalist, Purbayan Chatterjee; leading Carnatic veena-player Saraswati Rajagopalan, and Supriya Nagarajan, a renowned Carnatic vocalist and founder of ‘Manasamitra’.
The Festival will also host a power-packed Heritage Evening at an iconic and historic venue in Jaipur. Supported by Rajasthan Tourism, this majestic evening at Amer Fort will feature a mesmerising performance by Pandit Rajendra Gangani, one of the leading practitioners of the Jaipur Gharana of Kathak. He will pay tribute to the age-old classical dance form, along with an ensemble of Kathak dancers. Les Souffleurs or The Whisperers, an artistic group created by Olivier Comte, will enthrall audiences with a unique production where they whisper poetic secrets into each other’s ears, using a hollow cane. To end the evening on a musical note, world-renowned sitarist Shubhendra Rao will present ‘East Marries West—A Legacy’ as a celebration of his Guru, the sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar’s 100th birth anniversary. He will be joined by his wife, Saskia Rao-de Haas, who is hailed as a pioneer for introducing the ‘Indian cello’ to classical Indian music.
iWrite at Jaipur BookMark
For all aspiring authors and poets with multiple drafts scribbled behind every notebook and diaries filled with words that you hope will one day be read by the world- ‘iWrite’ by Jaipur BookMark is the perfect platform. After a very successful first edition last year, iWrite is back to inspire literary aspirants. Shortlisted participants get a platform to share their work and receive constructive guidance from international publishers, literary agents, translators and other industry experts in a pitching session at Jaipur during JBM.
If you can write compelling copy and want to get close to where the action is, the Jaipur Literature Festival 2020 Blogging Competition is your chance to make that leap. Highlighting the Festival’s core aim to support and promote artistic expression through writing, the Blogging competition will give ten chosen writers a chance to inspire audiences through their words on the Festival’s official blog site. The winners will also be invited to the Festival and cover various sessions from the 23rd-27th of January 2020.
The Delegate Experience
While the Festival is open to all, specially-curated Delegate packages guarantee an experience to remember. Delegate-only lunches serve as an opportunity to meet and mingle with like-minded literary enthusiasts and make new connections. The well-stocked Delegate Lounge provides a luxurious reprieve and priority seating on special occasions ensures a close-up view of the Festival. The Delegate package also includes an invitation to attend the beautiful Heritage Evening at Amer Fort, and a tote to take home. These Delegate Packages range from INR 6,300 per day to INR 23,800 for five days.
A mundane afternoon was turned into a glorious one when a curious few uncommon literati reveled at an unusual Hendrick’s brunch on the pristine environments of The Rajmahal Café, SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace. While these remarkable individuals were marking their attendance in Jaipur Literature Festival, Hendrick’s and SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace decided to play host to their spectacular feats and oddities, in a most unusual way. Centered upon the partaking of whimsically marvelous offerings such as Hendrick’s & Tonic with Cucumber, Hot Spiced Apple, The Lesley Gracie and Hendrick’s Gin Buck, in an atypical brunch setting, the sublime titillations were enjoyed by Rajesh Ajmera, Rajeev Arora, Tarang Arora, James Pennefather, Angad Singh Gandhi, Abhilasha and Vipul Bhandari among others.
For those bursting at the edge of ordinariness, the unusual Hendrick’s Gin is infused with the curious, yet marvellous, essences of rose and cucumber, delectably supported by no less than 11 botanicals from the four corners of the world. Created in 1999, this whimsical concoction produces a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma.
About The Rajmahal Café:
The Rajmahal Café is set in the sprawling grounds of SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace and brings a new slice of Italian inspired cuisine to the Pink City. The alfresco, all day dining experience, celebrates carefully sourced, seasonal Italian produce with much-loved classics and some special fusion interpretations of traditional recipes. Stylish, yet easy-going, The Rajmahal Cafe brings a welcome freshness to the Jaipur restaurant scene.
Hendrick’s is a delicious super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s is distilled in Scotland in two utterly dissimilar sorts of still – Victorian Bennett and rare Carter-Head still, under the watchful eyes (and nose) of Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie. www.hendricksgin.com
Hendrick’s is made by William Grant & Sons – an award-winning, independent, family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and still controlled by the fifth generation of his family. The Company distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky, including the world’s favourite single malt Glenfiddich, , the handcrafted range of ‘The Balvenie single malts’ and the world’s third largest blended Scotch Grant’s, as well as selected other spirits, including Tullamore Dew and ‘Sailor Jerry’.
