These visits helped the International delegates closely observe the medical system in India and appreciate our streamlined working despite the sheer patient load.

But EAMSC is famous not only on the academic front; it is also a learning experience and place of exchange of cultures of various countries!

Cultural workshops were held which introduced our friends from other countries to authentic Indian food and dishes; calligraphy workshops were held to teach the International delegates to write their name in Hindi, a fashion show was organised in which the ladies and gentlemen, irrespective of their countries, donned colorful sarees and smart kurtas, and lastly, everyone bonded over a good old game of Pitthu.

International booths were also set up which were decorated by each country in their own fashion, featuring food and drinks which are native to their land, and the clothes they wear. Laughs were shared and everlasting bonds were made as International boundaries were forgotten and instead at the end, everyone was dancing to Bollywood tunes!

The delegates also visited local sightseeing venues like India Gate, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Kingdom of Dreams, Connaught Place along with their Group Moderators. On the penultimate day, the delegates visited the monument which is most talked about when anyone visits India: the lovely Taj Mahal. After coming back, instead of being tired, the delegates were even more energetic as they represented their country's culture in the form of songs, dances and skits, as part of the Cultural Night!



On the last day, the prize distribution ceremony was held at the Lalit (where the delegates were also accommodated during their stay in India).
