The World Monuments Fund Gala

Last night the World Monuments Fund held its annual Gala at the Plaza Hotel. This year they gave the Hadrian Award to Ratan N. Tata and the Tata family in recognition of their leadership in the restoration and protection of India's cultural heritage. Having made several trips to India for both work and pleasure I have certainly been the beneficiary as a tourist, of all the hard work that has gone into preserving places of interest. The Tata family has also converted old palaces into hotels some of which I have been lucky enough to have stayed in including the Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur and the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur.
