Two Commonwealth nations, India and Canada, gave a break to serious diplomacy as the visiting Commonwealth Parliamentary Association of Canada hob-nobbed with the Commonwealth Society of India. Canadian High Commissioner Jess Dutton co-hosted a dinner with Shivani Wazir Pasrich, the chairperson of Commonwealth Society of India.

The dinner hosted at the Canadian High Commissioner’s residence wasn’t just about small talk alongside serious ones but also had dance and music. The evening began with a musical tribute by Ameera, accompanied by Aleixo on the keyboard and Edwin on guitar. Shivani Wazir performed a fusion dance.

Present on the occasion were Jennifer Graham, Dr BK Modi, His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa, New Zealand High Commisioner Grahame Morton, Australian High Commissioner  Harinder Sidhu, Acting high commissioners of Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Cyprus, former Indian Ambassador to Poland, Monika Mohta, Sunaina Anand of Art Alive, Lady Kishwar Desai, and others.
