"Chuck Some At Shobhaa, Willie"

A report in the Business Standard says: "A select group of Indian writers like Tarun Tejpal, Shobhaa De, William Dalrymple, Namita Gokhale, Hari Kunzru and Ira Pande will head to Jaipur for the Jaipur Heritage International Festival from January 14-23, 2005. Here they will read out excerpts of their work, share experiences and basically revel in Rajasthan’s colourful spirit."

Readings, OK. Sharing experiences, fine. But revelling in the state's colourful spirit? One has visions of the lot rolling about in some sun-drenched courtyard throwing gulal at each other.


  • :) You should've seen some of the tourism films screened at the press conference.
