* Bordeaux, Booker and Beyond!

A Conference in Bordeaux: Theme: "South-Asian Diasporic Circulations and Cultures: Transdisciplinary Approaches"
Place: University of Bordeaux, France. Date: 14 and 15 October 2011.
Paper title: Food in the Culture of India and the Indian Diaspora: Analysis through the Selected Works of Anita Desai.
Authors: Dr. Amit Shankar Saha and Bhawana Jain
Presenter: Bhawana Jain (Nice Sophia-Antipolis University, France)

An Event in BCL: On the eve of the announcement of the Man Booker Prize winner for this year Aparna Bhattacharya of the British Council, Kolkata, organized a reading and discussion of the Booker shortlisted novels, "Hooked by the Book(er)". The event was conducted  by Richa Wahi. It was a very nice experience and my prediction for the winner came up trumps. 

Recently visited the "Treasures of Ancient China" exhibition at the National Library and "Kalighat Paintings" exhibition at the Victoria Memorial. I will recommend Calcuttans to visit these two exhibitions for some enriching experience.

* This Diwali I had a surprise - a free Dove Nourishing Oil Care Range Gift Hamper. Thank you Dove.
