Taj Hotel is all geared up to welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Francois Hollande during their visit to the city on January 24. The hotel management has planned a traditional welcome for both the government heads.

They will walk the carpet underneath a decorated, hand-held canopy called Phulkari dupatta — a custom mostly observed during weddings in the region.

While four persons will hold the traditional duppatta from each side, the guests will pass through the entrance beneath the canopy.

Meanwhile, special Punjabi dishes have been included in the menu, beside other different varieties to be served to the dignitaries.

The officials confirmed local chefs will be cooking the food with special focus on Punjabi dishes, including ‘sarson ka saag’ and ‘makki ki roti’.
