Pune: The most curious part of exploring India is the fascinating cultural background. There are so many different languages, people, customs and various colourful festivals. A few students from Japan, who recently visited India for their internship, got a chance to experience a taste of Indian culture on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. A group of students from Tokya, Japan are in India for their internships. Fidel, a lang-tech company in Pune, is a Japanese service provider and associates with a lot of students and professionals who come to India in order to explore the country and its rich culture. The Fidel team took this group of students to Shree Parshuram Dhol – Tasha Pathak practice on Sinhagad Road. The Dhol Pathak team taught the students how to play dhol tasha. They were quick learners and after a few practice sessions, they joined the whole group for a lively performance. They were fascinated to see that so many people participate in the Dhol Pathak after their respective working days. They had a lot of questions about the festival and were eager to know the history behind all the customs followed for Ganesh Chaturthi. One of the students, Kento, said, “I am thrilled to be a part of this celebration. The Indian culture is truly magical and I definitely plan on visiting here often.” During the course of their visit to Pune, they are staying in the heart of the city – Sadashiv Peth for a better understanding of day-to-day life of a Punekar. They described the locals as kind and cheerful people who made their stay very homely and comfortable. One of the highlights of their stay in India is all the variety of food and sweets that they got to gorge on. They especially loved the jalebis.
Fidel offers these kinds of internships to Japanese students who come to India, as well as the Indian students who visit Japan. Fidel is working since the last 15 years to bring Japanese and Indian people as well as businesses together. One of their team members said, “We believe that both countries can come together to explore mutual advantages. This is a win-win situation for both. In these efforts we are actively participating in student exchange programs. We help these students in all aspects to make their stay fruitful.” There is low awareness about India as country among the Japanese people. They have heard about only few things about India and their perception does not match current scenario of our country. The objective of this program by Fidel is to make the world aware about India as country that is advancing in today’s world while balancing its rich tradition.
