Indian Welcome Evening by the India Platform

The India Platform invites you to its annual Indian Welcome Evening. For however long you stay, Europe will be your new home away from home. That is the reason we organise this evening: all of us know that living in an alien culture is not always easy. During the evening experiences can be exchanged, new friendships can be built, and we can think together about how to bring Europe and India closer together. This year we will build on the theme of our 2014 event “Ceci n’est pas l’Inde – This is not India”.

All Indians living in Europe and Europeans with a heart for India are most welcome!
