An Interactive Session with new Indian Students The University of Western Australia saw enthusiastic participation. Thank you Prof Amit Chakma, Vice-Chancellor, senior officials & staff of the University, Dr Renu Sharma and all wonderful students from India for a great event. UWA, one of the top 100 Universities in the world, hosts hundreds of Indian students, majority of them pursuing post-graduate studies. Two alumni of WA educational institutions, Dr. Amit Gurbaxani, President of Australian Dental Association, who was glad to revisit his alma mater UWA, and Karthik Srinivasan, Founder and Chief Technology Innovation Officer of Ziksu working to introduce new fintech solutions and seamlessly connect transactions between India and Australia, shared their experiences and insights on gaining higher education in Australia. Two young students - Nitya Tewari and Shravani Surve - presented folk and contemporary dances choreographed by Rakhi Bose of Academy of Indian Classical & Bollywood Dance, which were loved and hugely appreciated by all participants. CG interacted with students individually, who conveyed their appreciation to engage with them and commitment to develop stronger connections with the community and for promotion of India's civilizational values and culture. The students and university officials participated in a Yoga session as well as a Yoga quiz by Vishwanath Deshmukh of AOL Perth, winners of which received books on Yoga. Students also received meal coupons contributed by local Indian restaurants as raffle prizes, with the first prize winner receiving a Samsung Tablet from Ziksu.
