Jaipur: "Everything is fiction until it is proven to be a fact," said journalist and author Raj Kamal Jha. "Fiction is what's inside of you. Facts are outside you," he added.

Jha was participating in the discussion 'clearing a space: between fact and fiction' with critically-acclaimed writer Amit Chaudhuri, along with Sri Lankan writer Ashok Ferry on day three of the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival.

Jha and Chaudhuri also spoke about how new authors are now breaking away from exoticisation of India, a trend which was prominent till the late '80s.

Chaudhuri also talked about the influence of Homer's 'Odyssey' on his novel 'Odysseus Abroad'.
