Mention India to someone and the first things that will probably spring to mind are its vibrant colors and great cuisine. We at Indian Confluence (InCo) recently organized our first-ever large-scale event in Brussels, the Indian Food Festival.
The idea behind the event was to give ‘home chefs’ a platform to showcase their culinary skills and bring to Brussels a variety of Indian food not normally found in restaurants here. And we were not let down — the home chefs did a great job, on par with the restaurants!
On Sunday, we were blessed with good weather and, consequently, a massive turnout of approximately 8,000 people.
InCo is a Belgium-based non-profit organization dedicated to showcasing Indian culture. We also raise funds to help improve the quality of life in rural India. Funds raised from these activities are used towards the betterment of life in rural India.
2. Who are its members?
We are a bunch of Indian IT professionals who want to contribute to society in India and Belgium.
We welcome like-minded people, so that together we can make a positive difference. We use this platform to encourage and welcome everyone who wants to do more than their day jobs.
3. What is the Smart Villages Initiative?
InCo founder Sreeman has partnered with the Government of Andhra Pradesh in its “Smart Villages” initiative and adopted a village named Pondur in Prakasam district, Andhra Pradesh.
