As a part of the famous Pushkar Fair, RTDC has introduced the Pushkar Literature Festival 2009 in association with Siyahi with an aim of adding new shades of the magical world of words to the multifarious culture of Rajasthan. The one-day event will bring authors like Namita Gokhale, Sathya Saran, Aman Nath, Anuvab Pal, Sadanand Dhume, Sheen Kaaf Nizam, Aruna Roy, Kota Neelima, Veddan Sudhir and Gafaruddin Mewati to meet and interact with the vast number of visitors during the Pushkar Fair. The festival will bring writers, poets, book lovers, publishers, performers and storytellers together to add to the mesmerizing riot of colours, textures, hues and flavours that come alive during this one action packed week.
This rendezvous will help explore and discover the meeting points between contemporary literature and folklore, oral traditions, legends, myths and languages, which precisely define the spirit of Pushkar. With the backdrop of the Aravali Hills on one side and sand dunes on the other, the annual Pushkar Fair is synonymous to 7 days of exotic sojourn through the royal luxuries blended with rustic beauty, spiritual solace, vivid colors of folk life, live performances, desert sports, and unique competitions.
