The Indian Union consists of 29 states, 7 territories, and over 1,2 billion people, whereas the European Union comprises 28 states and over half a billion citizens. Despite geographic and cultural distance, we have many things in common. One of them is being faithful to democracy. We are also facing common challenges such as providing possibilities of growth to the young people, as well as appropriate education – said dr Małgorzata Bonikowska, CIR’s president, while delivering a speech at KIIT (Kalinga Institute for Industrial Technology) in Bhubaneswar, the capital city of the Indian state Orissa.
