Post-Sandy, Indian mission in New York held UNSC meet
The Indian mission to the UN in New York took the unprecedented step of hosting the UN Security Council meeting on its premises, as Superstorm Sandy disrupted work at the UN building. On November 1, when the turn for Indian presidency came, the UN building was not in a shape to host the meeting of the Security Council. The UN building was closed on October 30 and 31, owing to the superstorm, and when it opened next day, parts of the basement was inundated with water and there was no electricity. As a result, India's permanent representative Hardeep Singh Puri decided to host the meeting at the Indian mission and arranged for the traditional "horse-shoe table".
