The air in the Cap­i­tal on Wed­nes­day night was full of two things — smog and ex­cite­ment. The lat­ter was cour­tesy the visit of King Philippe and

Queen Mathilde of Bel­gium. The re­cep­tion was hosted by the Bel­gian Am­bas­sador to In­dia, Jan Luykx and his wife Raka Singh, at their res­i­dence. High­lights of the evening were per­for­mances by Bol­ly­li­cious — a Bel­gian dance col­lec­tive that moves to Bol­ly­wood mu­sic. “The group aims at pre­sent­ing the rich­ness of In­dian dance by per­form­ing clas­si­cal, folk and other gen­res,” said Luykx. An­other high­light was the spe­cially cu­rated menu by Bel­gian chefs that in­cluded sig­na­ture beet­root salad and of course, Bel­gian beers.
