Hindi-Course in Jaipur

In February/ March 2013, eight students from Heidelberg, Würzburg and Freie Universität Berlin gathered in Jaipur (Rajasthan) in order to improve their spoken Hindi skills. This class was originally set up by Prof. Monika Boehm-Tettelbach ten years ago, and was continued by the current chair of what today is the Dept. of Modern South Asian Languages and Literature at the South Asia Institute, Prof. Hans Harder. The course is taught by Prof. Pawan Surana, an eminent Prof. from Rajasthan University (see photo) and three of her colleagues (Prof. Sudesh Badra, Prof. Anil Jan, and Dr. Srivastha). In addition to these four-week daily classes, students also had the opportunity to gain some first-hand insights into Indian culture, by having music and dance lessons in the afternoon.

This year, the end of this course was celebrated with a joint festival at Jaipur’s Maharani College, during the Anniversary Function of the Indo German Society on March 17th. There, the students sang a Hindi Song, while students from the Dept. of Languages sang German songs. During the function, the chief guests were Prof. K.L. Kamal, the previous V.C. of Rajasthan University and PD Dr. Elvira Graner, the newly appointed Resident Representative of the Delhi Office of the SAI. Students from both the Hindi Course and the German classes at the University were also honoured for their achievements in a quiz (see photo). The event was covered widely by the local press (see photo).
