Cultural and Educational Relations
there had not been any significant exchange of cultural visits between the two
countries in recent years, Malagasies
are familiar with Indian culture thanks to vibrant PIO community. Indian TV
channels are included in the cable TV package by local cable operators. Indian movies/TV serials, provided by the
Embassy, have also been telecast on National TV. The famous TV serial Kabhi
Kabhi is now being telecast on National TV. The cultural programmes, including
film shows, organized by the Embassy in association with local organizations
have been well attended.
Embassy’s initiative, an EdCIL delegation visited Madagascar from 5 to 11 June
2013 and organized workshops/seminars in collaboration with the Universities of
Antananarivo and Majunga, which were well attended and it is expected that many
students would look at India as a destination for higher education.
