The atmosphere was festive. The artists were eager. Engineers and officers of Hidco had done a great job of organising the whole matter - bringing in the artists, creating the workplace, getting litres of paint and brushes,  painting the wall with off-white paints as a backdrop - and the tea etc.

Yesterday, I met a team of 4 Senators of France who had come to Kolkata. They were a part of a "France-India" Friendship Group" of the French Senate. We talked of Urban Development, Food Processing, Foreign Direct Investment, French Cuisine, Tax and legal framework, Land Monetisation, Co-operative farming and other things.
Here is a picture of our breakfast meeting yesterday:

I told them of my ENA days in France (2003-04) and they were delighted to speak in French to me and I followed what they said (to a great extent) but my replies were in English mixed with un peu francais.
