Missed Con­nec­tion

The Economic Times - - Companies: Pursuit Of Profit -

A se­nior min­is­ter of an African govern­ment landed up at his In­dian coun­ter­part’s of­fice dur­ing his of­fi­cial trip to the country, only to be told that the wor­thy wasn’t in. The for­eign dig­ni­tary had to be sat­is­fied with meet­ing the sec­re­tary, which left the vis­i­tor feel­ing none too pleased. And this when the govern­ment is seek­ing to strengthen ties with that con­ti­nent. The hunt is now on to fig­ure out who pre­cisely was at fault for the em­bar­rass­ment and to make amends by mak­ing sure that the two do get to meet be­fore the African min­is­ter leaves.
