Blaze of Colours and a Zest for Life

“India Summer Days” brings a Piece of India to Karlsruhe

With around 12,000 enthusiastic visitors, the premiere of the India Summer Days in Karlsruhe was a complete success last year.

The preparations for the second edition in July are already in full swing, as the India Summer Days, which take place on the 14th and 15th of July as part of the pre-FEST week, will bring a piece of India to the Günther-Klotz-Anlage.

In addition to an Indian bazaar, Indian delicacies, a live stage, and numerous other cultural performances, India fans can expect workshops on Ayurveda and Yoga – and these are held by Indian experts.

With the motto “Baden-Württemberg meets Maharashtra”, the India Summer Days will focus again on Maharashtra from the heart of India, the partner region of Baden-Württemberg, with which Karlsruhe is connected to for years. The “India Summer Days” take place under the patronage of Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann.

Topics of the workshops include the activation of self-healing through yoga, the introduction to SOM meditation and Pranayama breathing exercises, meditation with the healing power of music, or insight into the elaborate production of ayurvedic products. Due to the high demand, the workshop programme already starts on Friday evening and extends over the whole weekend. During the workshops and lectures, visitors have the opportunity to book their own personal courses in small groups with Shriguru and Ayurveda legend Balaji També and many other Ayurveda, yoga, and nutrition experts from India.

What is different to last year is that the workshops can be booked by the hour. This allows the workshop programme to be even more individually organised for every participant. (ps)

Anlaufstelle in Pune


Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
