The Times Litfest 2015, Bengaluru, kicks off on Saturday at the Jayamahal Palace Hotel. The two-day festival is among the biggest such literary enclaves in Bengaluru. It'll see some of India's foremost creative minds talk, argue, debate, discuss and engage with vital topics which touch our lives.

Over two busy days, achievers from every field will talk about reading, writing, culture, journalism, food, comedy, sport, films and much, much more. Speakers on Day 1 include historian Ramachandra Guha, NR Narayana Murthy and Snapdeal CEO Kunal Bahl, star chef Manu Chandra, and comedians Radhika Vaz and Rubi Chakravarti.

It's not all fun and games. Our serious sessions include Raghavendra Joshi talking about his father Bhimsen Joshi's legacy; Rohan Murty (founder of the Murty Classical Library), author and historian Vikram Sampath and translator Arunava Sinha on preserving our cultural heritage; and Pranesh Prakash of Centre for Internet and Society, Lawrence Liang of Alternative Law Forum, and author and journalist Vivek Kaul on internet censorship and net neutrality.
