Part 2 of Oprah’s Next Chapter aired on Sunday, April 29, 2012, showing a more relaxed, perhaps more well rested Oprah, as she expanded her reach into the country’s mysteries and wonders. She and her camera crew first focused on Vrindavan, better known as “The City of Widows” before heading south for a stop at the magical Taj Mahal. All the pageantry of Indian royalty was on display for Oprah’s visit to Jaipur, a short but regal segment that showed her time spent at City Palace, glossing over any mention of her attendance at this year’s Jaipur Literature Festival.
