Cox & Kings, in partnership with Virgin Atlantic and Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, presents a special India evening at the Royal Geographical Society on 10 October, including an exclusive lecture on ‘The Mind of India’ by Sir Mark Tully.
Cox & Kings Travel is delighted to present an exclusive India-themed evening at the headquarters of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) in London. The highlight of the evening will be a talk by one of the world’s great India experts, Sir Mark Tully, on the subject of The Mind of India. During the talk, Sir Mark will draw upon a lifetime’s immersion in the complexities of India, from its deep-rooted traditions to its manic modernity, to give a very personal view of the country, its people and its place in the world today.
After the talk, Sir Mark will be happy to take questions from the audience and sign copies of his books.
As the BBC’s bureau chief in New Delhi for 22 years, Sir Mark Tully became one of the most respected and recognisable voices of India to his millions of listeners in the Subcontinent, Britain and beyond. His passion for India is undimmed and he remains one of the foremost authorities on Indian culture, history and religion. In addition to his broadcasting career, Sir Mark has written a number of the most perceptive books about the country, including: No Full Stops in India, The Heart of India, India's Unending Journey, and India: The Road Ahead.
In addition to the talk, there will be a specially curated exhibit of maps, photographs and archival material from the Society’s India-related collections spanning more than 500 years and prepared especially for Cox & Kings.
During the evening, there will also be the opportunity to meet Cox & Kings’ India experts; learn about the forthcoming Maha Kumbh Mela festival in Allahabad (anticipated to be the largest ever human gathering); and discover the inspiring work of the Magic Bus children’s charity in India, founded by Matthew Spacie MBE, formerly of Cox & Kings.
Wine and canapes will be served.
