International Cultural Exchange
Priyadarshni Academy organized 2 visits of a group of Japanese students from Osaka University, Department of Oriental studies, Japan, to Mumbai in 1998 and 1999. These students, who learnt Hindi language and Literature at Osaka University, presented plays in Hindi at Jai Hind College and Nehru Centre. The plays featured social themes with a comic touch. Their unique and impressive performances directed by Prof. Tomio Mizokami received great appreciation and critical acclaim from the audience and media, in India as well as Japan. The visits were great opportunities for both Indian and Japanese students for interaction and cultural exchange.
