Written by

On 16 February, the 3rd Honorary Consulate of Lithuania in India was officially opened in Kolkata, India, on the occasion of the Day of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania. The Honorary Consulate is headed by a businessman Arvind Kumar Sukhani.

The University of Calcutta confered a posthumous doctorate on one of the world's greatest explorers — Lithuanian traveller and anthropologist Antanas Poska - the man who undertook an incredible journey to India on a motor bike all the way from Vilnius in 1929.

The number of Indian students is rapidly rising in Lithuanian higher education institutions.
