Cultural differences should not separate us from each other as they are our strength. Cultural diversity draws us closer. World would be monotonous if we all were the same. Therefore, Intercultural dialogue like EBSB is a great mechanism to ensure a compassionate, peaceful, fair, and sustainable world.”

Like every year we train about 70 girl students from J&K as summer interns in our campus for six weeks’ time. This time again as part of EBSB we are hosting 25 students from Mizoram and will attempt to provide them an enriching experience that they would carry along with them. We welcome more such immersion programmes in future.”
