Heartily congratulations to ICCR Awardees 2019-2020. You have embarked on a journey to the west, India, in search of the truth of Dhamma (knowledge). India has been well known for its very ancient knowledge and great civilisation which emulated itself to be in pair with great powers in the modern world. 

It’s a great opportunity to experience the studies and living in so-called incredible India, a land of diversity in terms of its geography, weather, culture, religion, ethnicity, language, food and people way of life. However, due to this diversity, outsiders often experienced “culture shock”. 

India is the world's 7th largest country by area and the 2nd most populous country with 1.3 billion residents. 

To Buddhists, it’s a Buddhabhumi (Land of Gautam Buddha). Dr R.B. Ambedkar, Father of Indian Constitution, was a converted Buddhist who founded Navayana Buddhism for uplifting thousands of Dalits, lower-class people in Indian society. He was also said to have associated with Samdach Preah Dharmawara Bellong Mahathera: The Great Dhammaduta Monk of Cambodia in the 1950s. India is also well known for its philosophy of non-violence propagated by Gandhiji, Father of India. 

Those who read Cambodian political history in the 1950s & 1960s would come across another well-known figure, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, who became an influential “guru” of Prince Norodom Sihanouk, former King and Head of State of Cambodia, in formulating his foreign policy of neutrality and non-alignment in the bipolar world order. 

Not to take much of your time, we are happy to inform you that there are seventeen students admitted to various universities in India this year under Mekong Ganga Cooperation Scholarship Scheme, MGCSS-2019-2020 of ICCR (two PhD candidates, eleven PG students and four UG students). And also there's one student under the CLMV scholarship scheme to pursue his higher education (PG) at Nalanda University.
