New Delhi, Jan 17 (PTI) Dalit literature in India and the issues
raised by it will be a significant feature at this year's Jaipur
Literature Festival, the increasingly popular literary event that
promises to bring together over 150 authors from all over the world as

The festival in the past has hosted some of the veterans from the
field of art and literature like Vikram Seth, Amitabh Bachchan and
Aamir Khan, and in its fifth edition this year, scheduled from Jan 21
