Ashok Wadhwa raised a toast to Thomas Piketty and the other authors and guests present at the table with a few words, saying, “We are delighted that Thomas and Julia have decided to accept our invitation and join us for this dinner. We think of this as a very special occasion and it certainly would not have been this special if all of you had not been with us tonight.”

As he thanked his hosts, graciously, for a wonderful evening, Piketty said, “I was not aware that I was supposed to speak tonight but it is a great honor to be here tonight an being able to come to Jaipur Literature Festival 2016. It is more important than ever today to have a gathering like Jaipur Literature Festival and I am really looking forward to being a part of the event over the next few days.”
