Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - REGION - Aish­warya Khosla

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.
