The eighth edition of the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN)’s week-long India immersion program, India ki Khoj 2019 kick-started at the institute campus. India ki Khoj 2019 is scheduled from December 16 to 22, 2019. This time, a total of 22 students, 10 from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and 12 from IIT Gandhinagar, have come together to participate in this unique cultural immersion program. Interestingly, it is an all-women team participating from Caltech this time.
In his welcome address to the participants, Sudhir Jain, Director, IITGN said, “This is a very high-quality program we have tried developing over the years, thinking that it will be a very good opportunity for students from Caltech to come to India and understand this country a little bit. We also hope that this will be a beginning of some sorts where you will get to know a different culture, food, a different type of educational institution here and retain some sort of interest in India.”
