The eminent Russian artist and philosopher Nicholas Roerich once said about Russian-Indian relations: "India's heart is drawn to the immense Russia. The great Indian magnet attracts the hearts of Russians. And cultural exchange and co-operation in education have always strengthened this rapprochement between two seemingly different countries.
How did it all start? How has the mutual influence of the two countries been reflected in today's educational programmes? And how do Russia and India enrich each other's culture today? Olga Kharina, PhD in Political Science, researcher at the Faculty of World Economy of Relations of the Higher School of Economics, expert on South Asia, will talk about this and more in the studio of the "BRICS: in the Mirror of Times" project.
The joint TV BRICS and GAUGN project received grant support from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science under the federal project "Popularisation of Science and Technology".
