The Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) is an event that remains very dear to my heart. It is one of those few places where unbridled intellectual conversations flow guiltlessly and where the gap between artists, creators, writers, poets and the audience is momentarily diluted.
The Jaipur Literature Festival 2021 starts on Thursday, 28 January and lasts for five days till Feb 1.
But one doesn't need to take out a whole five days to get a taste of what the Jaipur Literature Festival is like. So, out my experience of several years, I have prepared a three-day itinerary for you. This itinerary has a personal selection of programmes to attend (totally personal choice, so you can attend anything you like) and other things you can do in some free time.
Jaipur is not a very vast city, so each place can be reached in under 30 minutes. The best way to commute in Jaipur is by using Uber. It is cheap, fast and saves you from haggling with autowallahas. All the places mentioned are in close distance to Diggi Palace, the venue, so you won't be missing out on too many programmes.
