The following is a brief first-hand account of the said book release function with all the photos by Vikas a student of the centre. 🙂

The Eurasian Foundation organised a book release ceremony at room no. 203, Committee room, School of International Studies [SIS], JNU at 5:30 pm on 7 August 2009. The programme lasted for more than one hour and was followed by an elaborate dinner at the JNU new cafeteria centre which was of course preceded by Vodka, fruit juices and soft drinks among other things [Dr. Arun Mohanty says that “a student of Russian Centre must have some liquid in his glass!”]. I waited until 8.50 pm and left before the dinner began because I had to go for the Arundhati Roy meeting in the campus.

The ceremony was presided by chairperson of the centre Professor Anuradha M. Chenoy. The book was released by His Excellency Dr. Kairat Umarov, Ambassador of Kazakhastan to India. Ambassador Rajiv Sikri who was once posted Kazakhastan was also present and enlighted the listeners with his accounts on Kazakhastan. Prof Phunchok Stobdan from the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses was another speaker at the ceremony. Another ambassador from a Central Asian country was also present. Professor Ajai Patnaik was also one of the speakers.

This is the committee room, all ready for the launch!
