His Holiness The Dalai Lama

One of the greatest moments of my life was when I offered ‘Sunset Dreams’ to His Holiness The Dalai Lama at a press conference in Governor’s Palace in Darjeeling. His Holiness opened the book and going through the pages stopped somewhere and read for almost ten minutes having the press wait silently as he read. Suddenly, noticing us, he closed the book, looked at me and smiled, “will finish it off tonight.” 

As a journalist I had gone there to cover the conference.
