Russian-Indian Friendship Celebration

The first edition of the Russian-Indian Friendship Celebration (RIFC 2020), which took place on March 7-8, 2020 in New Delhi, became an important cultural attraction of the Indian capital. The opening ceremony was attended by Ambassador of Russia to India H.E. Mr Nikolay Kudashev.<br />
<br />
The programme was full of activities: traditional Russian music (balalaika recital, chorus, folk dances) was interweaved with the Indian tunes (Hindustani vocal, Bharatnatyam and folk dances). Within the framework of the RIFC a number of talk shows on tourism and traditions of Russia were held. A yoga workshop and a stall with Russian books in Hindi and English were very popular among the guests of the celebration. <br />
<br />
The exhibitors presented hand-made textiles and ceramic products, jewellery, teas and souvenirs. The visitors who came in large numbers were especially attracted by the Russian food stall full of traditional items, including such signature dishes as pelmeni, pancakes, borsch, piroshki, schi, etc.<br />
<br />
The Embassy is looking forward to continue the practice of organizing such events in future.<br />
