From discussions on the Jazz Age to Jesus as a historical figure to contemporary Indian art, this year’s Jaipur Literature Festival covered a lot of ground and then some more. Be it Lord Meghnad Desai’s verbal duel with Pavan Verma over the metaphorical significance of Krishna or an over-capacity attendance for Prasoon Joshi’s talk, JLF 2014 had its moments. While it lacked the controversies that marked some of the previous chapters of the festival, it offered up to literature enthusiasts opportunities to listen to their favourite authors compare theories and simultaneously introduced them to a whole new gallery of writers and ideas.

He likes to hoard more books than he can possibly read and wishes that writers begin to earn zillions by the time he becomes one.
