The Jaipur Literature Festival came to a close on Monday, January 28, 2013. One of the finest of the literature festivals organized worldwide. The maha kumbh of literature, the 8th edition of the Jaipur Literature Festival kicked off to a smooth start on 24th Jan and curtains were down yesterday 28th Jan.   Packed in 175 sessions in five days, addressed by over 275 speakers from across the globe, the Jaipur Literature Festival had several high points to its credit in the 2013 edition.

Some of the highlighted speakers were -

Mahashweta Devi

The main attraction was His holiness Dalai Lama who made his presence on the inaugural day and shared the influence of literature on his life.  The Dalai Lama stressed on the importance of secular ethics as the basis of moral teachings and noted that morality based on religious teaching cannot be universal.

With almost 200,000 footfall in the five days and amazing sessions with brilliant authors discussing a range of topics which held the audience in rapt attention, the festival had several evening musical and cultural events also. Dinner parties at beautiful Amber with light and music show was highlight of them. To keep updated for information like this click here.
