Jaipur Literature Festival organisers today got interim relief from Rajasthan High Court which stayed the arrest of the event producer Sanjoy Roy in connection with author Ashis Nandy's controversial remarks regarding Dalits.
Prasoon Joshi who came out a flaming feminist in the session, called Lord Krishna the "biggest eveteaser" of the gopis, dismissing a light hearted rejoinder from Sanjoy Roy who said "they look like they're enjoying it in the paintings".
Salman Rushdie would have been the biggest literary celebrity at Jaipur. But in his absence, he became even bigger, hovering over the festival like Banquo’s ghost. It was hard to find a session that didn’t mention the man.
