Jaipur | Le Méridien | Day 03

On the final and concluding day of the Jaipur Literature Festival, the excitement was almost tangible with the Writers’ Ball which was going to be hosted by Le Méridien in the evening. Even after night-long rain showers that continued right till late morning, the energy kept everything moving forward while the venue for the evening was all shifted indoors.
After a wonderful hot stone massage from the previous evening, we decided to do some more exploring of the hotel grounds post breakfast. You can find Naina’s account of our 3rd day at Jaipur here.

Before we knew it, it was time to start getting ready for the Writers’ Ball in the evening. Was really looking forward to it especially since this was gonna be our first time at this event.

Didn’t want to get too fussy with accessories since, well, we were travelling and I DO NOT like to carry a whole city with me. Decided to go with a statement pendant and a big ring with dark galaxy nails.

Here is what I decided to wear for the evening. Naina & I both had also carried a dress just incase the weather had sided with us, but neither was in a particularly brave state of dressing especially after the winter rains. My outfit was almost bordering on bohemia with the wide pants and loose layers which is why I decided to throw on my coat to hint just a bit of formality. Outfit details are at the end of the post.

Soon enough the guests had started to arrive at Le Méridien for the Writers’ Ball, suddenly all 3 bars were in full swing and everyone was literally having a ball. But I highly doubt that’s why they call it a ball!

The Rajasthani folk singers and dancers were the incredible highlights for the evening. The dancer, in a traditional Rajasthani outfit came and danced right between where the guests were seated for dinner and she probably had the energy of almost half the people present there, combined! Guests were so entertained that some of them even came and gave the dancer company! So much fun!
