Professor Sen’s story is very impressive. I can’t image that such a great thinker could pass on his great ideas in such a lovely way. His wishes are his concerns about his country and the whole world. I am sure the audiences would be impressed a lot. We need such great masters as Professor Sen, who loves his country, wants to make it a better place and would like to enlighten children to get start to think about these big questions.
Great article from a literary giant.
overwhelmed with the way proffessor addressed in the fest.. presentation makes a lot of difference..
Your humoristic style is awesome, keep up the good work!WWW.DRONEULTRA.com
Julie: Excellent writing. Excellent descriptiveness. Excellent discretion. I didnt want to about the lingam ajingam thing.
“I fell in love with at least a hundred handsome, moustached men in Rajasthan.” Mr. Singh was the most excellent … and as you said he was an accomplished camel driver and polo stick handler .. Camel Polo. What about the terrific motorcycle ride you took with that lad from America … .
Such good writing … and I am delighted to read more about your adventures.
Cinderella deserves to go to the ball – your blog is amazing and an inspiration to female singe travellers. xx
I love the way you’ve described the time spent at the Festival…am so looking forward to the first of many visits…
Wonderfully evocative of the beat and rythm of JLF. as a proud participant since its inception I value your handsome praise for the color and spirit of the festival
We love our loyal friends who come back year after year ! And esp special writers like arshiya who make JLF the most treasured lit fest for its friendships and warmth and all the many hues that arshiya has enumerated ! Thank you
Thank you ma’am for writing our story. You should’ve waved back though.
Maybe some day I will.
Simple and beautiful.
Thanks for reading!
All I can say is, never having read the works of Ruskin bond myself, this re-working makes me want to read him as soon as i can. Great work Prerna.
Bond’s work will take you on the most beautiful journeys. You’re in for a delightful time!
Good work..Keep it up!!! Best wishes
Loved reading it!
It’s really great
I’m glad you liked it
It is very reminiscent of Bond, however it is almost as if he decided to accept that “there are people with cellphones in his memory palace of dehra”. A refreshing read. Very much Bond.
Sherlock fan? or another Doyle fan?
Very engrossing story and contemporary too. You have described the feelings of the girl very well. I could empathize with the character and that is what makes you a good story teller. Keep it up.
Thank you so much!
Eternally grateful ^_^
What’s with you guys and sad endings ?!
Believe in magic , you muggles! :p
Hahah. Why don’t you write a sequel where they have a DDLJ ending? :p
Simply beautiful. Leaves you thinking and sad though….
Great words….. Nice.

Nice work! Could relate to so much of what you said. Loved reading it.
The countdown to my first visit to the Jaipur Literature Festival has already begun and Shrabani Basu’s blog sets the scene for what to expect when I arrive at this literary extravaganza. Finally a chance to come face to face with our favourite writers and the best of minds in an informal space and not to forget the endless cups of tea from khullar over animated discussions. I know this will be an experience to savour and make me want to come back for more!
अच्छा बयां किया है । अति सुंदर । बधाई । अबके हमें भी इन आवाजों में अपनी एक आवाज मिलाने का अवसर उपस्थित हुआ है ।
A very well written piece
Wow! I like Literature Festival ever….
Good to have a book on ( Indian ) parenting !! Moreover initiatives to run workshops for parents are required .
Learning /adopting better practices requires a few ( at least 3-4 sessions ) for it to sink in.
Being a parent and a “learning and development” corporate professional I feel this area needs a great deal of attention. Professionals undergo training/ learning sessions to be better managers/ leaders. Even more important is to know how to raise your child/ children – to be ready to face the world
I am so waiting to hear this, in person preferably!
Intriguing . I am sure it will be a fulfilling and enriching experience.
Nice references used.
Damn… Mr.Fry is going to be here… and I cant even make it to Jaipur.
Sexual revolution has started long way back when these powerful women authors started expressing their views . Looking forward to see some of the great personalities at JLF.
jlf is great festival
From the discussion it appeared as if first we make theories than try to selective put the events to fit in to prove those theories by hook or crook.
My question to
1, Syed salman Chisty: if we are open to listen within and outside, why the discussion on Koran or other Muslim symbol is considered as taboo.? Sufism may be open to accommodate all, but threadbare discussion on Koran and other Islamic symbols is and will remain taboo.
2. Shashi Tharoor: why your every question was deep fried in the party specific political angle instead of being with critical analysis of the issue in hand?
3. P. sivakami: You proved existence of categorization and compartmentalization of society related to problems of city life by citing example of villages. Why could not you see that problem of villages are far different than that of the city and government functioning? To begin with try to analyse two problems separately and you will find that caste based issues of villages and organised government institutes of cities are far different.
I have read the earlier books of Atul Gawande, I got to use his book on the CHECKLISTS actually in the work. I am sure of this book will be relevant to all the readers, and for the medical profession!
Can’t wait to get my hands on ‘India’!
A very well written and interesting article.
Beautifully written. Bant is indeed a brave person.
Can we have a youtube link to it as well for those who couldnt attend the event.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog
thanks Anu, very Beautiful. It was a pleasure to meet you at the literature festival this year. Dr Rahul Tiwari, lok nayak hospital New Delhi
Yes , I do believe that .It is best place for all sort of people.
Prerna, I must say, it’s technically a post modern and thus very well written story. Kudos
During reading a book Delhi written by Late Sh. Khushwant singh. just struck in my mind….dis is a male account of the hijra life…what about a hijra writing his own story…. And I found dis….great. I would luv to read d book.
brilliantly said … im in total agreement ,
its an amorphous indefinable transient yet tangible idea sustained despite religion caste inequity disparity color etc .. it is pride in an identity not attached to all of the above yet anchored intrinsically to all of the above
