After getting approval from SAYUL Korea for a special movie screening event, we had a discussion with Mr. Kim Jin Gap, Officiating Secretary of Korean Culture and Language Center, Kolkata, regarding the sponsorship of the event.  

We held our first off-line meeting of this session to discuss and set up a detailed plan for the event after the finalization of the sponsorship.  

We discussed about our idea of organizing a special congratulatory screening for the Academy award winning movie, 'Parasite' (기생충). We decided to invite Korean guests, Korean language students, other SAYUL teams along with their friends and family, and educational institutes.

All of us shared our ideas on the following points and shaped our scheme of actions accordingly-

 

  • Venue, date and time.

  • Booking of the movie theatre: Choices available- (i) Audi 1 with a normal screen (267 seats)  (ii) P[XL] Audi 4 with a curved screen (377 seats) After going through all the pros and cons, we decided to take up the challenge to pull a huge no. of audience and chose the latter one for the screening.

  • Creation of our team’s official mail and SNS accounts for better promotions.

  • Promotions: Digital- Teaser videos, posters and a special event video Prints- Event posters, event passes and a standee

  • Availing event passes at a student friendly budget

  • Selling of event passes and method of its distribution

Summary of the trip:

On 6th December’19, SAYUL in India Team I organized its first Cultural Exchange Trip to St. Paul’s Cathedral and King’s Bakery. St. Paul’s Cathedral was our first destination of the day. Acknowledged as an ‘architectural treasure’ on the land of ‘City of Joy’ Kolkata, St. Paul’s Cathedral was built in the Gothic revival style (Indo-Gothic design). It was the first Episcopal Church of the Eastern world. The overall structure resembles England’s Norwich Cathedral with three Gothic stained glass windows and two frescoes in Florentine Renaissance style and the tower is modeled on “the Bell Harry” tower of Canterbury Cathedral.

The trip commenced at 10 a.m. as all the SAYUL members and Korean guests gathered in front of the entrance gate of the Church. Everyone partaking in the trip had the opportunity to witness a procession of and for the Specially Abled Children supported by the Cathedral. A brief on St. Paul’s Cathedral was given by SAYUL Leader, Ms. Shirsha Singh, in Korean to the visiting guests and then all the participants proceeded towards the Church. Everyone prayed together under the same roof and experienced the essence of peace and tranquility of the Church.

Around 11:20 a.m., all the members and the Korean guests moved to the next destination that was the 2nd Outlet of King’s Bakery. It is the very first Korean Bakery in our town serving traditional Korean dishes and confectioneries. Food is an important part of cultural identity which opens a window for cultural exchange. Cooking traditional food is a way of preserving one’s own culture in new places. Both the SAYUL members and the Korean guests relished the unique Korean experience away from Korea. As a friendly gesture, SAYUL members treated the Korean guests to lunch and vice versa. And the trip concluded with a happy, gratifying, delicious meal.


The Activities on the trip:

  • Witnessing a procession of and for the Specially Abled Children supported by the Cathedral

  •  Briefing on the historical and archaeological aspects of St. Paul’s Cathedral

  • Interacting with Koreans in their native language, a platform to enhance our Korean speaking skills

  • Offering prayers together

  • Relishing Korean cuisine at King’s Bakery while watching ‘Knowing Brothers’

  • Jamming to K-pop songs at the Bakery

Short Explanation: SAYUL India Day-trip and Korean Food with Koreans in Kolkata

A day trip to St. Paul’s Cathedral Church and King’s Bakery’s second outlet at Park Circus was arranged by SAYUL in India team(led by Baishakhee Chakraborty) along with Shirsha Singh's team for Korean residents living in Kolkata. With Christmas almost dawning upon us and winter just starting to lay its seeds in the weather of Kolkata the ancient church with its Gothic architecture and located at the heart of Kolkata in Park Street serves as the best location for a day outing for everyone and anyone. The church is the largest cathedral in Kolkata and the first Episcopal church in Asia. The Anglical church serves as the seat of the Diocese of Kolkata. One can roam the church grounds and the gardens attached to it to take in the beauty and the peace the environment offers.
