TA­BLE TALK

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

At So­nia Gandhi’s thank you lunch on July 18 for UPA al­lies, she and Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh were all charm. She had Lalu Ya­dav, Sharad Pawar and Ram Vi­las Paswan on her ta­ble. The Prime Min­is­ter’s ta­ble had Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah, Pra­ful Pa­tel, Rahul Gandhi, Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav and P. Chi­dambaram. Mu­layam sat next to Chi­dambaram, so there wasn’t much con­ver­sa­tion be­cause of the lan­guage bar­rier. But there was much talk be­tween the oth­ers about fit­ness, Sri­na­gar and golf. No guesses on who dom­i­nated the chat­ter.
