Interacting with leading Indian editors

Today, I was invited to the High Commission of India, in the midst of other Nigerian journalists to interact with 10 leading Indian editors.

They represented Mayalala Manorama & The Week, Daily News & Analysis, Navbharat Times, Outlook India, Economic Times, The Telegraph, Prajavani, Headlines Today and Mr. Devaart Chakravorthy from XP Division, Ministry of External Affairs.

The interactions were based on the elections and on the impact the Osama's will make on Nigeria. It was a wonderful session for me until a journalist from the Guardian goofed by asking the Indian delegation: "Do you have any newspaper in English language?"

I squirmed like a bird, looking at a moth.
