The Annual Report 2019 of Casa de la India was presented to its Board members at the Board of Trustees Meeting on June 23rd, and today we are launching it publicly as a farewell before the summer holiday.
2019 has been a very special year, as it has marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi. Casa de la India and its Board of Trustees, formed by the University of Valladolid, Valladolid City Council, Embassy of India, and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), with the collaboration of other entities, have paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, father of the Indian nation, through a specific program with many cultural, academic, institutional and educational activities.
