Friends from Consular Corps ;

My fellow Indians who are also an equal partner for today’s event ;

Let me extend a very warm welcome to all of you for being with us today for this event entitled ‘Impressions of India’. I am thankful to Hon’ble Minister Mr. K.J. Alphons for giving this idea of having a public event where we may able to display a microcosm of India.

Given the geographical extend and cultural diversity of India, having such an event without support of Indian community people and volunteers from Indian students, support from Indian restaurants and handicraft exporters, today’s event would have never been possible.

I would encourage all of you to visit every venue of today’s event;

have a taste of Indian food;

see various facets of vast touristic opportunities available for you in India;

learn few steps of classical as well as bollywood dance;

tryout your hand on some of musical instruments;

see handicrafts and handmade carpets from various parts of India;

learn few yogic postures to stay fit and bring work-life balance;

tryout traditional costumes;

and most important share it on your moments and give your sincere feedback to us so that we may improve on it.

Thank you very much.
