Moving from Mysore, once a princely state in South India, to cities in the North, via slums, ashrams, Bollywood studios and exclusive clubs, we close our festival with a fantastic evening celebrating all things India.
Taking to the stage to discuss his two recent, critically-acclaimed books will be Mahesh Rao, one of the most exciting authors to come out of the country today. Rao will illuminate the exhilarating diversity of the world’s second largest nation in a fascinating conversation with Sameer Rahim, Literary Editor of Prospect magazine.
Their words will then be turned into action by an Indian dancer, who will treat us to a fifteen minute interpretation of the talk.
Finally, enjoy a glass of wine and mouth-watering Indian canapés courtesy of celebrated chef Paul Bloomfield. The perfect end to a perfect fortnight.
