BONDING OVER FOOD
Veteran BJP leader L. K. Advani may be opposing the PM candidature of Narendra Modi but the two leaders didn’t display any animosity over chaat- papri at the dinner hosted by BJP President Rajnath Singh at his home on August 29. Seated next to each other at the high table, the two leaders talked animatedly about food and the similarities between Sindhi and Gujarati cuisine, both of which have a tinge of sweetness. Rajnath Singh had done the balancing act by including dishes of both varieties including Gujarati dhokla and Sindhi kadhi. The late voting in the Land Acquisition Bill delayed most MPs, but they all turned up and stayed till midnight.
