Mani Shankar Aiyar, Karan Thapar play the devil’s advocate
KASUALI:ON the second day of the Khushwant Singh Literary Festival, the audience at Kasauli on a chilly morning was ruddyfaced with laughter as diplomatturned-politician Mani Shankar Aiyar played the devil’s advocate to political interviewer and columnist Karan Thapar.
Taking a leaf out of Thapar’s book, Aiyar turned on the heat as Thapar sat on the hot seat. A witty repartee ensued.
In keeping with the fest’s theme, the strength of the nari (woman), Aiyar decided to focus the session on the prominent women Thapar knew and interviewed.
