Brunch with Natwar Singh and Authors' Afternoon

With Kunwar Natwar Singh
7 September 2014: Last week, Friday and Saturday was very hectic with back-to-back events. 
With Naresh Kumar and Natwar Singh
On Friday I hosted a brunch at my residence for former veteran politician and author Shri Natwar Singh who has been in news for the past few months for his latest book One Life is Not Enough.
The brunch, which started around 11:30 am and continued till 2:30 pm, was very well attended and as interesting as anticipated. 
Among those who attended were ex-Vice Chancellor of Presidency University, Prof Malvika Sarkar, author, essayist, critic and poet, Bani Basu, Deputy Commissioner of Bangladesh in Kolkata, Abida Islam, Malbika Banerjee, Naresh Kumar and others.
Natwar Singh ji was at his best and shared his experiences about the new book. He also said many things not mentioned in his latest book.
With Gopal Poddar and Javier Paulinich, Ambassador of Peru
On Friday night, I went to The Park Hotel to attend the Peru National Day. I met the Honorary Consul of Peru, Gopal Poddar, and Javier Paulinich the Peruvian Ambassador. I discussed many cultural and social events with him. I discussed with the ambassador the possibility of organizing more cultural and social activities among India and other LatAm countries.
With Yatindra Mishra at Authors' Afternoon
Yesterday, Saturday, I went for the Author's Afternoon session with Yatindra Mishra at the Taj Bengal Chambers. It was very interesting to have a author at the series whose works are mostly in Hindi. One of his books, translated into English, was presented to the guest invitees. It turned out to be one of the best Author's Afternoon sessions till date.
Yatindra Mishra is a talented poet, musician and author. He has written a book on classical singer Girija Devi which is called Girija. Another book called Devpriya is a book of conversations with danseuse Sonal Mansingh. His latest book Bismillah Khan is called Sur Ki Baradari. He has compiled 800 hours of music.
