ME ON CITY 7′s UAE WEEKLY

I was ‘spotted’ at the Emirates Festival of Literature, March 2014, and asked to chat with a lovely lady from UAE Weekly- a current affairs program on City 7 TV Dubai, hosted by Mirna Nassar. You’ll find me at 1:28 (just after Sir Tim Rice :) )

My sister’s take: “I very much enjoyed you determinedly not touching your wind-blown hair while pretending to type on an off laptop”
