Indian Summer’s annual Dinner by Starlight gala fundraiser is one of the most anticipated events in Vancouver. This year’s Guest of Honour is renowned geostrategist and bestselling author Dr. Parag Khanna. The evening’s theme will be “The Future is Asian,” in honour of Dr. Khanna’s just-released book of the same name. This is a rare chance to listen to a modern-day oracle and his predictions for the century that will no doubt be shaped by Asia. The evening's meal is curated by celebrated chefs Vikram Vij and Karan Suri. Creating an exquisite, one-time only meal, reflecting the theme "The Future is Asian".
Geostrategist, futurist and best-selling author Dr. Parag Khanna is a highly sought-after thinker, advising the world’s top companies, governments and institutions on their future maps. The New York Times describes him as ‘a foreign policy whiz kid’ and Esquire named him one of the “75 Most Influential People of the 21st Century.” In his latest book Khanna argues that the 19th century, the world was Europeanized. In the 20th century, it was Americanized. Now, in the 21st century, the world is being Asianized. Far greater than just China, the new Asian system taking shape is a multi-civilizational order spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan, Russia to Australia, Turkey to Indonesia – linking five billion people through trade, finance, infrastructure, and diplomatic networks. Enjoy a gorgeous night out and support a great cause. Seats to this one-time only meal are limited and always sell out, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
