Rudy’s in Town

Rudy Giuliani, famed former mayor of New York, former Times person of the year, Republican and possible republican presidential candidate for 2008 will be in Mumbai today for the erstwhile Sir Dorab Tata Memorial Lecture. Mr Giuliani will be delivering his lecture on ‘Principles on Leadership’

The lecture is free to the public and commences at 6 p.m at the Tata Theatre, N.C.P.A.

Personally I feel the lecture will be a interesting if Giulliani touches upon his experience as Mayor of New York in the context of a city like Mumbai. Giulliani is given the credit of reducing crime in New York by adopted an aggressive public policing strategy based on James Q. Wilson’s Broken Windows theory. Though Steven B Levitt‘s Roe Vs Wade theory refutes the broken windows theory, but that is quiet a different matter.

All the same I’ll be there.

    He is a great speaker, and very captivating. I’ve heard him live here in NYC a couple of times.

    Do write about what he speaks of at the lecture. I wish I could have been in Bombay to hear him.

    Nick and Arzan – Due to unforeseeable circumtance I couldn’t make it. I’m disapointed but anyways – hopefully tomorrow’s papers do a meaningful job in reporting it.
