LitFest 2012 ends


The Jaipur Literary Festival concluded with the Writers' Ball Party at the Kesar Kyari of Amber Fort. 
At the last day's sessions, the only discussion among the audience was Salman Rushdie's proposed video conference which did not happen at the end of the day.
At the Writers' Ball yesterday evening, besides the authors and speakers, few prominent Jaipurites were invited. Kesar Kyari really looks amazing when lit up. The guests were busy clicking pictures and some of them took my pictures as well (picture).
I had a brief chat with Namita Gokhale who was a tad relaxed after the huge event.
I complimented her for the great show.
I also met and chatted with Swami Agnivesh (picture) who was, for most of the time, busy on his cell phone.
Sunanda Pushkar, Konkana and others were there at the Kyari roof where dinner was laid.
Javed sahab was also at ease today. After finishing his session on Lava, his new book, he was thronged by his fans, mostly school children, and could hardly move freely.
After that session I was standing with filmmaker Sangeeta Dutta of London as Javed Sahab tried to talk to us but had to beat a retreat from the venue due to the crowd of well wishers and fans (picture).
I have invited famous theatre director, Bhanu Bharti, today evening. He is from the Bharatpur division. He was in the city on an invitation from the Rajasthan government to produce and direct a programme on the Republic Day at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium. I am thinking of attending this programme though tomorrow I have many last minute work to finish off with in Jaipur and then leave for Mumbai.
