Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vijay Goel’s customary winter lunch saw all kinds of Delhi savouries lined up. Goel is known for his deep connect with the vegetarian cuisine of old Delhi. But what caught everyone’s eye was the two sets of seating arrangements. For Home Minister Rajnath Singh, the table was laid out in formal Hyderabad House style and for FM Arun Jaitley it was a durbar. Singh is a man of few words who weighs every sentence he utters, while Jaitley is gregarious and known for his amiable relation with the media and his anecdotal story-telling. Jaitley’s table was also laid out to ensure that he is at a distance from the other guests, mostly from the media, since he’s still recovering from his surgery. Once a foodie, Jaitley carried his own sanitised cup of tea from home.
