The 2015 Commonwealth Day Observance

Standard

March 9th 2015 was the most extraordinary day of my life.

On that day, I stood on the Sacrarium Steps of Westminster Abbey and delivered a specially-commissioned poem, “Gathering”, to a crowd of 2000 people, including the British royal family.

I wrote about the experience at length for The Hindu, here.

And a little piece on how I picked out my wardrobe for the day for Fashion 101, here.

Here is the official recording of my performance: And here are a few photographs. My favourite is the last one, taken during the rehearsal.
