At the WFUNA 201st Exec Co in New York

Sha Zukang (UN Under Secretary General), Ambassador Park So Gill (President, WFUNA) and Bonian Gul Mohammadi (Secretary General, WFUNA)
Today I attended the Word Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) 2011 executive meeting which was held at the Turkish Centre in UN Plaza. In the morning I had breakfast meeting with Jarmo Vinanen, Ambassador and PR of Finland to the United Nations.
During the executive meeting I also met Sha Zukang, Under Secretary General, United Nations Economic and Social Council which is commonly known as Ecosoc. 
WFUNA Executive Meeting in progress
He is in the news and would continue to be in the limelight in the coming months as he has been appointed Secretary General of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (RIO+20). Zukang, who is originally from China, impressed us with his speech and views.
Yesterday, I went to an Indian restaurant
Tulsi on 211 East, 46th Street for lunch. This new restaurant is owned by Chef Hemant Mathur who personally greets and welcomes all guests at the restaurant. The decor, the food and the element of innovation in Indian and modern fusion food has made its mark within the few months it started operations. The taste of chat at Tulsi is good and so are all other offerings.
This evening I went to another Indian restaurant
MINT located on the 50th Street near Lexington Avenue. I was there for an early dinner after the Executive Committee meeting. This is six-year-old Indian food joint but very popular because of its aristocratic decor and ambience.
Tomorrow the executive committee meeting will start at 9 am and I have to be there as India might propose to host the 203rd Executive Committee meeting in New Delhi.
