The Wise Owl
Artwork: Harmeet Singh & Rachna Singh
The Wise Owl Team was in Jaipur recently to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival. We enjoyed the soul nourishing sessions at the Festival. We also had the opportunity to visit Sambhar Lake (which is 82 km from Jaipur) where we were told Flamingos had been sited. We were lucky to find them, their characteristic bright pink plumage beckoning us. So, we decided that the Flamingo would be the mascot for the March edition. Flamingos represent balance, potential, beauty and romance, attributes we covet. Enjoy the interview with Jayne Anne Phillips, whose novel, Night Watch, was nominated for the National Book Award 2023. The interview with Madan Lal, an Indian artist, is a re-run on popular demand but our gallery will display his latest work. Poetry, stories, reviews, visual arts, & podcasts make this edition very refreshing & stimulating. Our Special focus this month is on the Jaipur Literature Festival we attended, so do browse through our write up and pictures. Our Montage film, 'You Read Books, I read Faces', is also inspired by this literary festival.
So dear readers & viewers, find yourself a quiet nook and enjoy the literary and artistic fare we have curated for you.
