Bric a Brac

Over to London

party circuit provides fodder

Sri-Sri-Ravi-ShankarLONDON is a happening place for Indians, especially in summers. All those who can afford the cost generally move to the beautiful city. Influential facilitators of the Indian government are seen holidaying in London, according to reports. The first report was about a book release by a socialite. He got into trouble when he boasted to a well-known industrialist of his proximity to a very senior minister. He said that he could facilitate any work that was temporarily stalled. What the man did not know was that the industrialist was visiting the same minister that day itself. The socialite received a warning from the concerned minister. Another report informs that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar recently met Robert Vadra in London recently. Sources say that Sri Sri apparently asked Vadra to ensure that Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka went to his ashram in Bangalore publicly; after that he would personally ensure that Vadra got a clean chit. This has infuriated the ruling dispensation and Sri Sri has been told not to involve himself in these kind of activities otherwise he would be declared persona non grata. In another report datelined London, Essar Group head Ravi Ruia, after getting the permission from the CBI court to meet a close relative who was counting his last breaths, was seen partying at the Loulou night club at London’s 5, Hurt Ford Street. Sources disclosed Ruia, an accused in the 2G scam, was also seen with Robert Vadra and Jyotiraditya Scindia. Sources also say the party was thrown by Vadra’s close friend and Dubai-based industrialist Rajiv Vazir. Stay tuned for more.
