Naidu’s Nellore Feast

August 08 2017

Last week, NDA candidate for vice presidentship, Venkaiah Naidu threw a lunch for around two hundred people, prominently some top scribes. It was a grand affair. The platter was mouthwatering: Andhra food of all sorts. It is learnt that the entertain his guests, Naidu had flown in all the food material and the chefs from his native Nellore. There was prawn, dry chicken, Nellore fish curry and mutton korma, along with dozens of vegetarian dishes and sweetmeats. At the lunch, prominently present were former India Today scribe and currently Rajya Sabha member Swapan Dasgupta, owner Arun Poorie and daughter Koel Poorie, as well as editor Raj Changappa. But though Poorie went up to meet Dasgupta, the latter so much as did not even get up to greet his former boss. Clearly, Swapan Dasgupta is a changed man!
