Invitation to attend my new book launch Sept 24

Dear All,

My new book – ‘Why India is Not a Great Power (Yet)’ published by Oxford University Press will be released by General VK Singh (Retd), Minister of State for External Affairs, Thursday, September 24, 2015, 7-8:30 PM, Gulmohar Hall, Habitat Centre, Lodi Road, New Delhi. It will be followed by a panel discussion that, besides the Minister, will involve the former NSA, Shivshankar Menon, Rear Admiral Raja Menon (Retd), former head of the Net Assessment & Simulation Centre at the National Security Council and ex-Assistant Chief of the Naval Staff (Ops), and Lt. Gen. SL Narsimhan, Commandant, Army War College, Mhow.

As this is the age of e-invitations, for those among you readers residing in the national capital region, do consider this a personal invite from me to you to partake of the occasion. Please block the date. Expect to see you at Habitat Sept 24 then.

Similar events are planned abroad at:

1) The Royal United Service Institution, Whitehall, London — panel discussion with Raffaello Pantucci and Shashank Joshi, 1800 hrs-1930 hrs, on Monday, November 9, 2015
2) Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1779 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC — conversation with Ashley Tellis followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session, 1030 hrs-1200 hrs, on Thursday, November 12, 2015

Hope very much that members of the large strategic policy and NRI communities in the London metropolitan area and on the US eastern seaboard interested in Indian foreign & military policy will try and make it to the RUSI/Carnegie event. Again, a request to block the relevant date.
Many thanks.
All Best,
Bharat Karnad
