India’s biting response to the Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at the UN was again read out with aplomb by Eenam Gambhir, first secretary with India’s permanent mission to the UN. Exactly a year ago, Gambhir had delivered a similarly befitting reply to the then Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif after he, too, raised the Kashmir issue at the UN. That takedown of Pakistan was made famous by the comment that the land of Taxila, a great ancient centre of learning, was now home to the “ivy league of terrorism”.

Gambhir, who describes herself on Twitter as an Indian diplomat and a Delhiite, is quite familiar with Pakistan, having worked with the Pakistan division in the ministry of external affairs before being posted in New York.
