The hurry and flurry around Drik these days  reminds me of the excitement surrounding a wedding.  Drik  is like the bride getting a makeover.

Traffic stopping? Drik often does just that!. Photograph Saikat Mojumder


And where is the father of the bride?  He is true to form looking frazzled and busy at explaining to all how big and good the trousseau is.

And the trousseau is big with 400+ photographs as exhibits, 34 evening presentations including lectures, discussions, films, performances, multimedia presentations and a video conference with Dr. Moreno-Ocampo.
