3. Internships in India: Download Our Latest Guide Book for Free

We are happy to announce the publication of our new guide book ‘Internships in India - A Guide by Knowledge Must’, which is available for free download from our website. We made it a point to cover all important aspects of doing an internship in India. Life for international interns will be so much easier once they figured out the logistical requirements and the Indian cultural environment. In addition to answering the most pressing questions, the guide features valuable insights ranging from logistics such as visa procedures and accommodation arrangements to cultural backgrounds and inspiration for how to spend one's leisure time.

Please download it from www.knowledge-must.com/guidebooks and share it with your colleagues, friends, or fellow students. This guide is published under a Creative Commons by-nc-nd 3.0 license. More information on the license can also be found at the above link.

4. Now Publicly Available: Results from the SAI Workshop in April 2009

In April 2009 Knowledge Must conducted a workshop for and in cooperation with the South Asia Institute / University of Heidelberg, Germany. The workshop called 'India - A New Destination for Career Fulfilment' took place over two days in New Delhi's India International Centre and was a huge success for the SAI, its students, and also for Knowledge Must. Now, that a year has passed, the results and findings of the workshop can be accessed publicly without any restrictions. Among other things, you will find transcripts of all speeches and talks that were delivered, the highlights from the 'Round Table Discussions' as audio-files to listen to, short movie clips of some of the SAI's students introducing themselves to potential Indian employers, and also a list of the highly prolific participants of the workshop.

Please learn more about the workshop at: www.knowledge-must.com/sai-workshop

5. Recent Events by Culture Must: Japanese Art in Delhi, Indian Electronic Music in Berlin

Our division Culture Must is happy to inform you on some of the recent events that received wide attention from audiences both in India and abroad.

 

PLANET_ARMOUR: Life is a battle / Planet India

An exhibition and performance of works by Masahiro Fukuyama and Yo Sato

Life is a battle by Masahiro Fukuyama: "The history of human beings is that of battles. From ancient times human beings lived, regardless of age or sex, fighting for something precious for them that they longed for; and sometimes they won or lost it. Battle is the act that hurts one's body and heart to gain something and to fulfil such a purpose; we have made and developed armours." (Masahiro Fukuyama). Masahiro showed stills of performances he did using the armours he built.

Planet India by Yo Sato is a study to the question, what is real and what is fantasy. "It consist of several canvases and a movie showing images/phrases, which I gathered in my daily life in India. The show is also a preceding work for publishing a book with the same title Japan." (Yo Sato)

 

Delhi Sound Tamasha (in Berlin) featuring: B.L.O.T., Andre Gardeja, 22ROCKETS, Krick, Finn Johannsen and Sid

The other remarkable event we did was a performance with India's most popular electronic music and visual arts duo B.L.O.T. - The Basic Love of Things. We have organised a four gigs tour to Berlin for them and for the first performance they played together with all our previous Sound Tamasha resident DJs: Andre Gardeja, 22ROCKETS, Krick, and more. For this very special 'Delhi Sound Tamasha' at one of Berlin's most authentic locations 'Club zur Wilden Renate' we flew in 20kg of deco material and turned the whole event into a truly Indian experience.

The other three gigs were at the already legendary three-day long 'Champagnerama' party at Malzfabrik, for the 19th birthday party of Tresor - one of the oldest clubs in Berlin, and, last but not least, for the 3+1 party at Rosis. We are sure that Gaurav and Avinash left their mark in the Berlin Club Scene more than anybody else from India before them and we are really happy we could give them all the support they needed.
