MISSION

The DAAD IndiAlumni Netzwerk e.V. is an association that connects Germans going to India and Indians coming to Germany from diverse academic fields. The goal of the association is the promotion of social engagement in the German-Indian context and to foster continued cultural, economic and scientific exchange.

MEMBER STORIES

Dr. Christoph Senft

IndiAlumnus und Co-Founder of Meetra
"During my studies in English, I had repeatedly dealt with Anglophone literature outside Great Britain and the USA, including India, of course. So we had discussed texts by Salman Rushdie etc. during our studies. When my university (Tübingen) started a cooperation with the University of Pune and was still looking for exchange students on the German side, I decided to write my master thesis on contemporary English literature from India and applied for the two semester exchange program. Only when I stood at the airport in Mumbai did I realize that I actually had no idea about this country, except for a few novels I had read about it. So it was a leap into the cold water."

Ingo D.

IndiAlumnus from Alliance Business School Bangalore, 2010
"After some minor bottlenecks in the beginning, we were able to experience interesting and lively lectures. Academically the semester abroad was worth a trip. Especially worth mentioning is the really great opportunity to visit an alumni meeting after the stay to exchange experiences. India was and is a challenge for most visitors. It requires preparation and a certain flexibility of character. Because as soon as you go with the flow, India leads you through an unforgettable adventure! A great inspiration for me were the moments I spent at a low-income school of Teach for India and in its communities."

Gina R.

Outgoing Student to Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, 2020
"The Speed-dating workshop organised by IndiAlumni was informative, fun, and a great opportunity to connect with those who have insights to share regarding all things India- from mosquito nets to the best study spots on campuses across the country. I now feel better prepared to confidently begin my time in India and to be open-minded to all that will come my way. I can’t wait to travel to the spots Alumni noted as worth visiting! Also, I’m looking forward to furthering my own understandings of “India,” as one of the most valuable points I took from the workshop is the notion that there is no single way to conceptualize India; the ways to experience it are as diverse as the country itself."
