India Japan Laboratory describes the Injan-Puliya initiative:
Injan-PULIYA is a cultural exchange group initiated by the India Japan Laboratory at Keio University, Japan. It is mainly created with a vision to stimulate a deeper and shared cultural understanding of Japan and India, and to enhance the collaborative efforts to ensure their long-term continuity into the future.
In general, a PULIYA (पूलिया) refers to a small bridge that connects the people in a village or community.
In the same lines, our group aims to carry out creative exchanges through facilitating industry-academia-government collaborations, so that the cultures of Japan and India can be layered as a small bridge, and can also become an engine for sustainable national prosperity (Injan).
Participants who complete the workshops can register as “Injan Ambassadors” and will have the opportunity to participate in future cultural exchange events and activities.
