I had the immense pleasure of meeting with HE Ms Harinder Sidhu, the recently appointed Australian High Commissioner to India this week. Ms Sidhu was delighted to hear that Usha, a young girl from the slums, is now, with Asha’s help, a journalist, and will be accompanying me to Australia. She was excited to hear more about the trip, and expressed her very best wishes. She is so passionate about critical issues relating to the urban poor and we are looking forward to working together with great anticipation. Thank you, Your Excellency for your warm welcome!
