October Topic: FRENCH AND INDIAN CLICHES

India and France are amongst those nations which are subject to the most cliches and stereotypes. Despite the current economic downturn,  France remains the number one tourist destination in the world and its lifestyle attracts visitors from around the world including an ever-growing number of tourists from India. For its part, India, a growing economic power, always brings to mind fantastic tales of the Mysterious Orient.

Where is reality situated?
What is the image you have of France and the French? How do you identify with the stereotypes that people hold about your country?

Come share your thoughts with us during the next rendez-vous mensuel !

Presented by Thomas Vo Van Tao, french lecturer at the University of Madras.
