Like migratory birds, more than 70 eminent authors and thinkers from across the globe just gathered in London this past May 20-21 for what has become an annual fixture, the Jaipur Literature Festival. The venue was different this year, because its traditional base at the Southbank centre had been taken over by the Karachi Literary Festival in what looked like a case of one-upmanship. So this year's gathering took place at the British Library, which was certainly an appropriate alternative venue.
ZEE JLF at the British Library was one of the first major events in the United Kingdom as part of the UK-India Year of Culture in 2017 designed to showcase the cultural diversity of India in the U.K. The diverse programme took its inspiration from the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence and highlighted the cultural exchange between the two nations.
