Visa issues? Human rights a concern? Indian government ineptitude?

Suffice to say, I’m very pleased that the statement we released this week that outlined the gross human rights abuses in Sri Lanka continues to resonate and launch a much-needed discussion worldwide (including here in Jaipur, India, where many people seem uncomfortable even hearing the compromises we all make when attending writer’s festivals due to sponsorship).

All cultural events have a political component and participants shouldn’t ignore them.
