Me­hfil with Me­hta

The Economic Times - - Companies: Pursuit Of Profit -

When the quin­tes­sen­tial Parsi from SoBo comes to town, all his friends drop every­thing and flock to see the mae­stro in ac­tion. And if it kicks off his 80th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, like it did last week, then its an ab­so­lute must-see. So, along with 8,000 en­thu­si­asts, buddy Yusuf ‘Yuku’ Hamied of Ci­pla, RBI gov­er­nor Raghu­ram Ra­jan, even the fiercely pri­vate Nusli Wa­dia and Cyrus Mistry were set for the big blowout mid week at Brabourne Sta­dium. Brav­ing the hu­mid­ity and the bumper-to-bumper traf­fic — made worse by the IPL match at the Wankhede next door — the cor­po­rate jet set and the bo­tox bri­gade jos­tled for the best seats along with a splat­ter­ing of bankers and Bol­ly­wood stars. Af­ter all, it’s not ev­ery­day that you end up on a date with Zu­bin Me­hta, An­drea Bo­celli and the Is­rael Phil­har­monic Orches­tra.
