Consul General of India Dedicates “India Corner”

By Puja Shanbhag

On Jan. 29, 2023 the India Center at UCF and the Consulate General of India in Atlanta debuted the “India Corner” within the India Center’s conference room.

Dr. Swati Kulkarni, Consul General of India (Atlanta), inaugurated the new “India Corner” following a commemorative ribbon-cutting ceremony with members of the consulate, students and community members. With a generous donation from the consulate, the new corner features beautiful posters, as well as decorations and 150 new books about India. Some of the titles include India-US Partnerships: Asian challenges and Beyond edited by P.P. Shukla, My Great Indian Cookbook by Vikas Khanna, The Yoga Tradition by Georg Feuerstein and Contemporary Theatre of India By Chaman Ahuja. The Consulate General of India in New York has opened “India Corners” at several universities in the Northeast, however UCF is the first to receive donations for an “India Corner” from the Consulate General of India in Atlanta.  The “India Corner” book collection will be a useful resource for UCF faculty and students who are interested in the study of India.
