Goel’s lunch

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

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.
