I am off to Delhi for a few days. I hope Jet Airways — the same airline that ferried me back and forth to San Francisco just a few weeks ago — gets me there from Pune uneventfully tomorrow afternoon. I am attending the 19th Skoch Summit in Delhi on 22nd and 23rd. Then I will spend the weekend with friends in Delhi and return on Republic Day, perhaps after attending the republic day parade.
I am excited about this visit to Delhi. As you know, politicians are my favorites and the best of them live in Delhi. Who knows, I may bump into the prime minister. Just kidding. Can’t bump into insubstantial things. But seriously, it’s been a while since I was there. The last time I was with a delegation from Australia. They were an absolutely wonderful group, led by Prof Andrew MacIntyre, Dean of the College of Asia and the Pacific, Director of Crawford School of Economics and Government at the Australian National University, whom I am privileged to call a friend.
See you in Delhi.
