At the Authors' Afternoon with Prof Sugata Bose

With Soumitra Chatterjee, Dr Sugata Bose and poet Subodh Sarkar
August 4, 2014: This weekend wasn't that busy since I did not accept any invites for Sunday. On Saturday (August 2) was another edition of Author’s Afternoon with historian Prof. Dr Sugata Bose in conversation with Suman Ghosh.

Prof. Dr Bose is also a Member of Parliament and represents Trinamool Congress from Jadavpur constituency. He is the Gardiner Professor of History at Harvard University and has served as Director of Graduate Studies in History at Harvard and as the Founding Director of Harvard’s South Asia Institute. He passed out from Presidency College, Calcutta, and got his doctorate from the University of Cambridge. 
This was perhaps the most serious Authors' Afternoon with maximum of audience that we have had so far. Also, Bengal's veteran thespian and actor, Soumitra Chatterjee, attended the Author’s Afternoon for the first time. 
At the Swiss National Day Party
On Friday evening I was in Taj Bengal as well to attend the celebration of Switzerland National Day hosted by the Honorary Consul of Switzerland, Mr Umesh Chowdhary and his wife Rashmi Chowdhary. 
With George Kuruvilla and wife Ritu

This week also there are quite a few programmes like the unveiling of the French Book List at the Oxford Bookstore, the Ladies Study Group - LSG in conversation with Ratan Tata at the ITC Sonar and a concert “Somerfest” followed by cocktails & dinner at the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, that would be hosted by Rainer Schmiedchen, Consul General and Dr Annette Schmiedchen. 
All these events are lined up before I leave for Jaipur on Saturday morning. Out of these programmes mentioned, I have only decided and accepted to attend “Somerfest” on the evening of August 7, 2014.
