Jaipur in January

We took a view at the festival that it was extremely important to keep up the cultural dialogue between Pakistan and India, and that once you start pulling the plug on writers and artists, the fanatics have won. Our Pakistani delegates are still coming, and they've got their visas despite slightly hysterical travel warnings from their own government.
