JLF Live: 'Putting mother tongue on threshold is a way of going elsewhere'

A controversy and consequent outrage, glamour and sports, Mahatma Gandhi's contribution, Indian insurgencies, and euphoria - the third day of the DSC Jaipur Literature Festival 2013 at the heritage Diggi Palace was an emotional roller-coaster.

Dalit ire against social scientist Ashis Nandy, euphoria over the presence of Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid, and a touch of glamour by yesteryears actress Sharmila Tagore, who unveiled a biography of her (late) husband kept the nearly 30,000 strong crowd streaming in throughout the day edgy with excitement and anticipation.
