India-Russia Festival of Science & Culture

Kalinka, the dance ensemble from Russia at the DAE Convention Centre, Mumbai


Further strengthening the bond between the two countries, the Festival was organised jointly by the DAE Cultural Council, India and ROSATOM, Russia. It comprised of a spectrum of interesting science activities for the school children and a colourful extravaganza of Indian and Russian performing arts.



The science activities included drawing and painting competition, quiz contest and extempore, the winners of which have been rewarded with a trip to Russia. An interactive session with Mr. Mikhail Kornienko, the Russian cosmonaut, was well received by the youngsters. Career-orientation sessions by the Russian experts provided insight and inspiration to the students.



Kalinka, the dance ensemble from Russia, enthralled the audience with its sheer brilliance. It was hosted at two venues in Mumbai - at the Old Yacht Club, DAE Headquarters, as an exclusive session on 27th October and then at the DAE Convention Centre on 28th Oct as a part of the day long activities under the umbrella of the Festival.
