‘Bonjour India’ festival to be held in Pune to commemorate the 75 years of Indo-French diplomatic relation

On the occasion of Azadi ka Amrut Mohatsav, and to commemorate the 75 years of the establishment of Indo-French political relations, the fourth Bonjour India Festival has been organized in Pune. The announcement was made by Emmanuel Lenain, French Ambassador of India.

Bonjour, India will be held as an on-ground event after a pandemic-induced hiatus across multiple cities in India, including Pune, in collaboration with the cultural outreach arm Alliance de Française and its network of consulates as well several French and Indian corporate sponsors.

The organizers said that this year’s edition will celebrate 75 years since India and France established diplomatic relations through people-to-people exchanges, with 120 events in 19 cities.

They added that the themes at the event will include performing arts, street art, gastronomy, cinema, literature, science, and education, among others. The event is organized between March 31 and April 28.

“‘Bonjour India’ is a gift from France to Indians. India and France have been close friends for many years and through this festival, we are trying to strengthen this relationship by exchanging ideas. The culture of both nations can be studied and art can be co-created. Along with this, seeds of new ideas will be sown through the free exchange of ideas between the two countries,” said Emmanuel Lenain, French Ambassador of India.
