China-India Friendship Award for Pallavi Aiyar

16 December 2010

Pallavi Aiyar, the former Beijing correspondent of The Hindu, has been awarded theĀ China-India Friendship Award by the Chinese government along with eight others.

One another awardee, Karan Singh, declined to accept the award because as a parliamentarian, he “did not want to be seen as favouring any particular nation“.

Pallavi, daughter of the veteran economist and journalist Swaminathan S. Anklesaria Aiyar, is also the author of Smoke and Mirrors, on her experiences in the middle kingdom, a book ironically panned by The Hindu‘s reviewer.

She now works out of Brussels as the European correspondent of Business Standard.
