Tonight I have a talk at The Nehru Centre, the cultural wing of the High Commission of India. It’s aim is to foster a continuous, varied and meaningful dialogue between India and Britain. The majority of audience members were first-generation immigrants from India and young women looking for a spouse. After the talk, the conversation was quite lively – a few parents asked me why their children are so “disrespectful”; some of the unmarried women asked me to describe the difference between the Indian communities in England and America. Afterwards, I talked to Jazmine Labana about her exhibition of paintings, “The Journey”, which is on display at the centre this week.
