In this popular song of Suman, ‘Ek Kaap Chaye Aami Tehke Chai’, even though we don’t know who he wanted, we want someone with a cup of tea. Tea is probably one of the most popular beverages. Without tea, chat does not accumulate. And on Tea Day three Nobel laureates Amartya Sen, Abhijit Banerjee and his French wife Esther Duflour met for tea. However, even if the Nobel laureates in economics do not know what the content of their chat was, it is clear that their chat does not stop without tea.
Amartya Sen’s daughter Nandana Dev Sen posted a status on social media Facebook on Sunday about the tea party of three Nobel laureates. She posted a photo of their chat over tea in Manhattan, New York and wrote, ‘Many of the world’s problems are solved over a cup of tea. (Especially if you get three such Nobel laureates over tea.)’
Nandana Dev Sen also wants to ask friends in the status, ‘What type of tea do you like? Want spice? Earl Grey? Green tea?’
Economist Amartya Sen won the Nobel Prize in Economics as the first Bengali in 1998. And in 2019, Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee and his wife Esther Duflo won the Nobel Prize in Economics.
