We are living in the difficult times of the coronavirus crisis. The world has hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and everything has changed since then. The ongoing pandemic has pushed the pause button of the world. International events, conferences, national events, conferences, seminars, etc everything has been canceled as the safety guidelines for citizens.
Slowly, the world is coping with the crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic and finding new ways to run the show. Jaipur Literature Festival producer Sanjay K.vRoy said that the team will host JLF on 21st February 2021. Roy said that these are the testing times and also the perfect time to reboot our thought process and create something fresh and vibrant.
The JLF festival is the favorite literature festival of every book lover. The festival celebrates the love of literature and books. The festival is the medium to link people with each other through the universal language of art and literature.
Roy also said “The pandemic has shown us that the road ahead is filled with unwanted barriers, but it’s not the end of it. It is going to give us knowledge which we never had a chance to visit in better times. It will bring us the wisdom to fight with even worse situations. JLF Brave New World is a reflection of the same idea which brought us together to keep fighting the pandemic and be together in these tough times.”
