In 2011, for instance, she described the four-day festival as literature’s ‘Woodstock moment’. The following year, she called it ‘sahitya ka Kumbh Mela’, and the next, a ‘bargad ka ped’ or banyan tree. And this year, the ninth edition of the festival, has been dubbed ‘Kathasaritsagar’ or sea of stories.The appellation, doffing a hat to a classic of ancient Indian literature, is an apt one for the five-day festival which brings together many stories from near and far, by writers and scholars, actors and artists, singers, dancers and creative practitioners of all kinds, both well-known and obscure, from genres popular and serious, emergent and established.

Sorry, but not scared: Kiku Sharda on Gurmeet Singh controversyKiku Sharda, the comic who appears as Palak (in drag) on Comedy Nights With Kapil, has been to hell and back.

Allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of a godman’s followers on a different show on a different channel.Now safe and at home, Kiku says, “I’ve always been a non-controversial entertainer. I don’t know how or why this happened. But it’s not as if I’ll stop laughing or stop raising laughs. I am sorry but not scared. This one incident has not soured my relationship with comedy. But it has made me question my own beliefs. I’ve never insulted anyone in my life. No one has the right to hurt anyone’s religious sentiments.” Read more here
