2019 India Spring Carnival to be held on April 13 at former TRA Taoyuan Station
The 2019 India Spring Carnival, co-organized by the India Taipei Association and Taoyuan City Government, will be held at the former TRA Taoyuan Station on Saturday, April 13, starting from 11:30 am. This event provides the perfect opportunity for anyone who wishes to experience Indian culture.
The India Spring Carnival was held two years in a row and has been well-received by the Taiwanese public. This year, it is back again with a splendid array of Indian dance and music performances by professional artists. The event features twenty-one spectacular shows, including classical dances Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Odissi, Kuchipudi; folk dances from Gujarat and West Bengal; and Bollywood dances well-known to the Taiwanese.
In addition, visitors can also try on sarees, get henna designs, shop for Indian herbal cosmetics, learn yoga and find travel information. Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of Indian dishes by several Indian restaurants in Taiwan. Moreover, associations founded by Indian nationals in Taiwan will also be there to demonstrate regional customs and showcase the cultural diversity of India. A total of twenty-two booths will allow visitors to truly enjoy the diverse culture of India.
In recent years, Taoyuan City Government has been dedicated to promoting the New Southbound Policy and has spared no effort in conducting exchanges with India. Last year, Taoyuan City invited representatives from Telangana to the “Taoyuan-India Exchange Forum” to discuss future industrial investment. This year, Taoyuan City works together with the India Taipei Association to co-organize the India Spring Carnival. This not only shows a deepened collaboration between Taoyuan City and India, but also depicts a wish to seek more cultural exchanges with India in the future.
The 2019 India Spring Carnival will open at the former TRA Taoyuan Station on Saturday, April 13, at 11:30 am. Everyone is welcome to join the event and experience the richness of Indian culture.
