Today, at Bangabhavan (delhi), I attended a programme by Minister Arup Roy. The Agricultural Marketing Department inaugurated a kiosk in Bangabhavan that will sell choicest Tulai-Panja, Kalo-Numia, Gobindabhog and other exotic varieties in packets. In my short speech, I offered to give space at New Town so that tourists returning to airport can take a last minute "bit of Bengal" back home.
The minister kindly agreed. So let's hope to take this forward as well.

In the morning, I met Mr Sudhir Krishna, Secretary to Govt of India, Urban Development Department and discussed about a National Workshop in Kolkata on "Densification of Cities".
Saturday 14th July has been agreed as the date. He has agreed to come.
Now we have to organise.
