His Excellency Kamalesh Sharma, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Tuesday 3 May. He will explore the issue of India in a globalising world.
There is a great transformation underway in India. Its current economic dynamism with particular aptitude in the knowledge based industry has been acknowledged as one of the factors of global growth. India's pluralism, inclusiveness and democratic society give it added strength and confidence in meeting the challenges posed by the globalising world. The high commissioner will give a perspective on India today.
Kamalesh Sharma is high commissioner of India in the UK. Prior to this post, he was special representative of the secretary general of the United Nations to East Timor as under secretary general from 2002-04, and was a member of the Indian Foreign Service from 1965-2002.
