Half a century of existence and a lifetime of commitments promoting cultural exchanges, eclectic views and global visions. The India International Centre reflects on the years left behind and reminisces on the evolution of its dining experience. The doors to its kitchen have now been thrown open for the first time, presenting a veritable account of the fireside story – a closely guarded secret since the first platter of its mixed grills, pork chops and treacle tarts made its way to the dining hall in 1962. Rare photographs of people, places and events from the post-Independence era simply add to the flavour.
