LUNCH WITH BS: Subir Raha

Adda with a chairman

Shyamal Majumdar  |  New Delhi 

The first thing that strikes me as we enter the Residency Lounge on the tenth floor of The Park is that the restaurant was empty. The venue is, however, a favourite of my guest, ONGC chairman and managing director Subir Raha, and I soon discover why.

"It's a great place for an adda," he said referring to that curiously Bengali phenomenon of an informal, agenda-less conversation. He went on: "Can you find any other decent food joint in Delhi where the crowd is missing?"

I couldn't but agree with him. The scene didn't change over the next two and a half hours of our lunch
