I’m the keynote speaker this morning at the annual Indiaspora conference. It’s being held in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. This is Indiaspora: http://www.indiaspora.org.
The gathering of people whose achievements are remarkable is really energizing. Not just the achievements, but the versatility of thinking, the cross-fertilization of ideas. A person with a doctoral degree in physics who is head of the Sanskrit society in the U.S. A graduate in English who does stand-up comedy. Policy-makers, teachers, urban planners, writers. Thinkers wide and far.
And did I mention that the food last night was fresh and delicious, principally vegetarian, robust in flavor, and balanced in heat, texture, and color?
