Shashi Tharoor took to X (formerly Twitter) to share a post on the closure of the iconic Indian Club in London. In his share, he wrote that he “laments” the “passing” of the institution that has served so many Indians over the years.
“I am sorry to hear that the India Club, London, is to close permanently in September. As the son of one of its founders, I lament the passing of an institution that served so many Indians (and not only Indians) for nearly three-quarters of a century. For many students, journalists and travellers, it was a home away from home, offering simple and good quality Indian food at affordable prices as well as a convivial atmosphere to meet and maintain friendships,” the MP wrote.
He also shared two images along with the post. Furthermore, he added more about the photos too. “As the picture shows, I was there this summer with my sister (we are standing in front of photos of my father attending club events in the early 1950s) and am sad to realise that that was my last visit, since I will not be returning to London this year. Om Shanti!” he explained.
