Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF), the largest free literary festival which began in 2006, brings together some of the greatest thinkers and writers from across the world every January. Held at the iconic Diggy Palace, Jaipur, book-lovers are treated to five days of readings, debates, discussions, live music sessions and interactive workshops. Jaipur Literature Festival was originally an initiative of the Jaipur Virasat Foundation, an NGO that works with Rajasthan’s musicians and craftspeople to preserve skills and promote economic livelihoods while protecting heritage. The people behind the JLF now are Namita Gokhale, William Dalrymple and Sanjoy K Roy.
