I am on my way to Kolkata — the city most likely to be mispronounced in airport announcements. What’s so hard about “coal-kaa-taa”? Three simple syllables with equal stress on each. In any case, the plan is to meet people and talk about things related to India and its political future. Just BTW, for the rest of my visit, I am going to be in the following cities:
Kolkata — today until 25th Oct
Trivandrum — 31st Oct to 2nd Nov
Bangalore — 2nd Nov to 5th Nov
Chennai — 6th & 7th Nov
Pune — a few days (not certain when)
Delhi — 20th to 23rd Nov
The rest of the time, I am in Mumbai.
