Dhaka becomes one of the few cities in the world that hosts more than one Indian cultural centre

Indian External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar on Thursday inaugurated a new Indian cultural centre here as a tribute to 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence.

“Our [Bangladesh and India] shared cultural heritage is the strength of our partnership,” he said while inaugurating the second Indian cultural centre at India House here.

He said with the new centre, Dhaka now becomes one of the few cities in the world that hosts more than one Indian cultural centre.

The external affairs minister said cultural domain is the primary driver of the people-to-people element of our partnership while Bangladesh’s culture and war of liberation is linked.

“It is appropriate that we opened the cultural centre during the month of independence and a few days after the International Mother Language Day,” he said.

He highlighted the importance of culture in the daily life and the shared cultural heritage between the two countries.

Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Vikram Kumar Doraiswami was also present.

Jaishankar arrived here this morning for a daylong trip to set the agenda of the Indian prime minister’s upcoming visit on March 26-27.
