Vom 2. bis zum 8. November 2015 war Hamburg nicht nur Tor zur Welt sondern das Tor zu Indien. Fast überall in der Hansestadt konnten Hamburgerinnen und Hamburger spannende Einblicke in aktuelle Entwicklungen der indischen Wirtschaft, Politik, Kultur und Gesellschaft gewinnen. Viele der vortragenden Expertinnen und Experten sowie Künstlerinnen und Künstler waren direkt aus Indien angereist. Die Förderung des gegenseitigen Austauschs und des Dialogs steht im Mittelpunkt der Veranstaltungsreihe, die alle zwei Jahre in Hamburg stattfindet.
