The Jaipur Literature Festival began in Houston at the Asia Society of Texas. The festival, touted as the world’s largest free literary gathering, started with a soulful music performance by Indian Sufi singer Zila Khan.
The inaugural session also saw Congress leader and writer Shashi Tharoor discuss his book “Why i am a Hindu” with writer Namita Gokhale. The annual festival, has now become synonymous with showcasing a range of voices from India and abroad, began in 2006 and is held annually in Jaipur.
