Director’s message

The New Year always brings with it hope, excitement, enthusiasm and a promise of new, as yet unseen and untouched horizons. We at The Nehru Centre are also stretching awake from our annual winter hibernation and returning with a fresh cultural season imbued with new talent, novel ideas and perspectives aimed at adding new dimensions to our interactions with our friends old and new! I am sure that you have missed us as much as we have missed you through the dark and cold winter months, and are looking forward to some sparkling presentations that link your hearts and imaginations while also igniting your minds, in the true Nehru Centre tradition.
