A DAY OF JOY AND FAREWELL

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Henna Rakheja

The feel­ings were mixed — emo­tions var­ied from joy to over­whelm­ing sad­ness when guests gath­ered for the Na­tional Day of the Repub­lic of Poland and to bid farewell to the am­bas­sador of Poland to In­dia, To­masz Lukaszuk.

Wine flowed at the gala re­cep­tion, the talks were nos­tal­gic, and the food scrump­tious, as flavours from Poland were served. The ex­cel­lent Pol­ish desserts made the con­ver­sa­tion that much sweeter. Ex­pats from Poland and In­dia talked about art, cul­ture and diplo­macy be­tween the two na­tions.

Se­nior jour­nal­ist MJ Ak­bar and au­thor Bhaic­hand Pa­tel were also present.
