Sonal's mesmerizing lecture

With H M Bangur, Sadhan Pandey, Mohanchandran, Sonal Mansingh and Krishna Bose at The Taj Bengal after the Prabha Khaitan Memorial Lecture
Today morning there was a lecture by Dr Sonal Mansingh on `Panch Kanyaa’. She was the first guest speaker of Prabha Khaitan Memorial Lecture Series at The Taj Bengal. The event was hosted by Taj Bengal .
The city was lashed by rains for the last 40 hours and the Taj personnel were naturally worried that this would affect the number of guests. But Kolkata is always full of surprises and extra chairs had to be placed in the banquet hall during the lecture.
The lecture was for about 45 minutes and was followed by Q&A session but for an hour and half it seemed that nobody batted an eyelid nor did any mobile phone buzz even once during the lecture.
During informal discussion on Saturday evening at dinner, I became aware of Dr Sonal Mansingh's (picture) intellectual depth. But when I heard her lecture, not only myself, but all the guests including, Minister in the West Bengal Government, Sadhan Pandey, H M Bangur, Krishna Bose, Dona Ganguly, Chaiti Ghoshal, Arindam Sil, German Consul General, Mr Rainer Schmiedchen and his wife, Taj General Manager, Mohanchandran, were all mesmerized.
After a long time I had a good time at dinner on Saturday evening with two intellectuals - Aparna Sen and Dr Sonal Mansingh.
Today evening I will attend the anniversary bash of Prasun and Anuradha Mukherjee at The Park.
