I saw the most gorgeous variety blooming happily on the magnificent lawns of Shirin and Priti Paul's stunning mansion at Alipore. Also in Rakhi and Aveek Sarkar's garden in Ballygunj.Blessed are the cities that enjoy seasons! All this in retrospect. When I was shivering inside the incredible Victoria's Memorial, where the inaugural function was held ( under Warren Hasting's statue), all I could think of was a hot bath in a warm room! Terrible! Especially since the keynote address was being delivered by Shyam Benegal and it covered 100 years of cinema!
