Director’s message

After nearly four intense, eventful and wonderful years as Minister (Culture) and Director of the Nehru Centre, London, I am very shortly returning to India on a posting. It has been my pleasure and privilege not just to contribute my ideas and vision to enhance The Nehru Centre profile and outreach, but to also attract and interact with a gratifyingly increasing number of patrons and visitors. Over these years, I have come to count many of you among my friends, and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the warmth, support, appreciation and help that you have unhesitatingly offered me at every juncture. I will miss the work and, more than that, all the people who made that work and my time here so pleasant and rewarding. This is the last Nehru Centre brochure to issue under my signature; it will be my successor who will be greeting you through the next one.
