The day after, on March 25, the embassy organises plays the movie Raincoat. The movie tells about a boy, Manoj, who is tasked by his mother with going to Calcutta to collect money for his sister’s wedding. What happens next is a big adventure including friendship, love, setbacks and achievements. Recommended for anyone who wants to see what Indian movies are about.

Last but not least, there is a stage play called ‘Her Letter’ on March 26. It is based on Rabindranath Tagore's short story 'Streer Patra'. The play questions how women can achieve self-fulfilment in our rapidly changing times.

Each of these events is free of charge, but there is only room for 200 people. Please bring a valid identity card or passport.
