It is also where Asia's largest literary festival takes place. That festival was recently highlighted by Oprah Winfrey in a TV show.

So, do you know the Indian city we're looking for?

Jaipur is the answer to the Geo Quiz. It is Rajasthan's largest city and home to the Jaipur Literary Festival. Oprah Winfrey made a visit to the festival recently, and shot some interviews there.

They became part of series of TV shows called "Next Chapter: India" and they've just started airing on TLC in India.

But there's a problem. Some Indians have found Oprah's take on India stereotypical.

Anchor Aaron Schachter talks to Rajyasree Sen, columnist for the online newspapers Firstport and Newslaundry.
