Zomato is delighted to announce its association as an activation partner with the 13th edition of Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF), to be held at Diggi Palace next week. JLF, which was founded in 2006, will be held from January 23 to 27 this year, with day-long sessions from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm.
Apart from our undying love for food, we are obsessed with new ideas. JLF has consistently been where reading Indians flock to discover new ideas and listen to original minds from across the literary world. We not only cherish words and cultures but also look forward to enhancing the overall fest experience. Interestingly enough, this isn’t Zomato’s first tryst with the world of literature. Last year, we partnered with Condé Nast in hosting India’s only food writing award.
Some of the key speakers at the event include economist and Nobel Laureate Abhijit Banerjee, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant, writer Elizabeth Gilbert (of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ fame), lyricist and poet Prasoon Joshi, filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj, and historians William Dalrymple (of Scotland) and Tom Segev (of Israel). Joining them will be the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stephen Greenblattsenior and the Booker Prize-winning writer Howard Jacobson, along with senior journalists Raj Kamal Jha, Rajdeep Sardesai, Ravish Kumar and Faye D’Souza, among others.
You will see us everywhere — on the cups that you drink from, at the food zones and with our surprise goodie bags! There’s so much food in literature and we can’t wait for you to discover that world.
