Am very happy to have finally made it to my first India Abroad Person of the Year awards this past Friday night, downtown  at the Museum of the American Indian, and my goodness it was wall-to-wall well known folks with connections to the desh: Jagdish Bhagwati, Madhur Jaffrey, Mira Nair, Salman Rushdie, Zarin Mehta, Sant Singh Chatwal, (current NYC resident) Abhay Deol, Nandan Nilekani, and Floyd Cardoz, to name a few.

And then there were this year’s awardees, including Zubin Mehta, Jhumpa Lahiri, and POTY Fareed Zakaria.

Sir Salman was accompanied by a gorgeous, statuesque woman who towered over most of us, and I kept thinking “I know I know her, but from where???”   And then, over the weekend, while watching Will Farrell’s tribute (ha ha) to Dubya, who appears as the hyper-hot Condi, but the very same lady, Ms. Pia Glenn!   You can see her here, around minute 2:20.
