Welcome to the Finnish-Indian-Society's homepages
The Finnish-Indian-Society is a friendship association that acts as a community of people interested in India and Indian culture. We promote social interaction between Finns and Indians living in Finland. Our aim is to promote the knowledge of Indian culture in Finland, and to strengthen cultural exchange and development co-operation between our countries. The Finnish-Indian-Society was established in 1949.
The organisation's original name was Suomalaiset Intian Ystävät ry (Finnish friends of India ) and initially it was mainly a community of people interested in Indian philosophy and the philosophy of Gandhi. At the moment the society has about 230 members, out of which 40 are Indian.
Finnish-Indian-Society arranges different kinds of activities related
to India and Indian culture, including seminars, lectures, courses and
various events. The Finnish-Indian-Society is a member of the Union of
Friendship Associations in
Finland and a member organisation of the Service Centre for Development Cooperation (KEPA).
Information about our activities and other Indian events you can get from here and from the newsletter which society members get approximately five times a year.
