Hamish talk

I attended a talk by Hamish McRae (picture), Associate Editor of The Independent - the London (UK)-based daily newspaper. The talk, Our Ever More Global Economy - and What Works in it, organised by Inner Eye magazine, was followed by an interactive session. 
It wasn't a Page-3 affair and was a selective gathering of serious people who exchanged views and opinions.
Mr Hamish McRae is no doubt a very well read and knowledgeable person.
I met the British Deputy High Commissioner in Kolkata, Mr Sanjay Wadhwani, who moderated the event. After the programme I was discussing with him about the forthcoming program with the British Council on 16th of January, 2011 (picture). There were quite a number of intelligent questions from the audience on the subject.
Representatives of many NGOs were discussing with me about the proposed fund-raising activities in the future and also about how supportive the government is of the NGOs in this part of the world. I signed off after thanking Jayabrato Chatterjee and went straight to the Royal Calcutta Golf Club (RCGC) to attend a wedding reception amid rains.
I congratulated the couple and then went on to meet my friend Rupa Ganguly at her residence near the RCGC. Thanks to the rains, there was the chance meeting with Suman Mukhopadhyay, director of mahanagar@kolkata and few other friends from the film fraternity.
