Flights of Fancy: Travel to the Jaipur Literature Festival


I was fortunate to be part of the literature festival in Jaipur held on jan 25th…

I was most attracted to the forums on poetry, urdu and ghazals, understandably I also bought a lot of Urdu books and this time Urdu poetry written in Hindi script.

So soon you will read poetry by Javed Akhtar, kaifi Azmi and Fahmida Riaz, which I will transliterate in the weeks to come….

Meanwhile here is a Vlog of the days spent at JLF.
