Short Explanation: We have always loved Korean food and after receiving the pdf on trendy restaurants we really felt like going to one here itself. So, for our first official offline meet, our team (Tanurima Chanda, Sohini Banerjee, Prakriti Subba, Tanurima Chanda, Sharmistha Naskar) went to King's Bakery in Kolkata to try out the delicious Korean food there. We were also accompanied by our Japanese friend Kaho Watanabe who also wanted to go there. We talked about Korean music, food, culture, and Kaho also told us about her experience when she had been to Korea 2 years ago and how she loved her stay there. She also told us about the similarities between Korean and Japanese foods. It was a lovely day.

Here are pictures of the food we tried:

Short Explanation: Our SAYUL team of five people namely Rupsa Nag, Sohini Banerjee, Prakriti Subba, Tanurima Chanda, Sharmistha Naskar visited Metcalfe Hall on 15.12.19. We were also accompanied by our guests Mr. Moon Daehun, Mrs. Park Insook. The cultural assimilation was an enriching experience. The Metcalfe hall is an old heritage building of Kolkata from the colonial times. It has been reconstructed in the recent past as a Kolkata museum which exhibits all that Kolkata is about ranging from history, photography, film, literature, food, arts to festivals, people of different places and faiths coexisting, transport, geography, and the very essence of the city itself. The experience was truly memorable and we are going to cherish it for a long time.

The Metcalfe Hall is an ancient heritage building built in the 1840s. It is named after Governor-General Sir Charles T. Metcalfe honoring his efforts towards a free press. The Athenian style building's interior has been renovated and made into a cultural museum that offers to visitors a glimpse of the city of joy Kolkata. Its three floors encompass Kolkata's history, films, literature, culture, nostalgia, secularism through exhibitions and art installations. One can also enjoy a VR tour of Kolkata on the second floor.

Short Explanation: 

On 15th September 2019, two SAYUL India teams planned a trip together with 6 Korean guests. We went down the nostalgic buzzing lanes at the heart of Kolkata, brimming with its Jewish heritage. It was an extremely fun and enriching trip where we learned and saw new things. The trip ended with the exchange of gifts and eating snacks we had prepared for our Korean guests from Nahoum and Sons, the oldest bakery in Kolkata.

안녕하세요. 여러분!

저희는 인도 세울 콜카타팀입니다. 저는 이 팀의 리더입니다. 

저희는 2019년 9월 15일에 콜카타의 유명한 두개의 유대 회당을 방문했습니다. 여섯명의 한국 사람과 아홉명의 인도 학생들과 함께 갔습니다. 

한국 사람들한테 줄 콜카타에서 유명한 빵집의 빵을 선물로 준비했습니다. 함께 사진도 찍고 여행을 마친후 간단한 스낵과 음료수를 마시면서 즐거운 이야기도 나누었습니다. 

정말 즐겁고 유익한 시간이었습니다.

Beth El Synagogue, Kolkata, 1856. Beth El, literally meaning "House of God," is a beautiful synagogue located at a 5-minute distance from the Maghen David Synagogue. Its architecture is breathtaking with stained glass decorations and chandeliers. It used to be the main community prayer hall for the Jewish community of Kolkata. It still has a "mikvah" the ritual cleansing bath Jews use.

Short Explanation: As representatives of SAYUL we organized a trip to Jewish synagogues in Kolkata with 6 Korean members giving them a knowledge of Jewish community’s history along with their culture in India. We all met outside the Maghen David synagogue at 2:30 pm, visited the place, gained knowledge about Jewish history in India, took pictures, and then went to Beth El synagogue, visited the place, gained knowledge about their marriage culture, and took pictures. At the end of the trip, my team and Rupsa Nag’s team prepared food packets as gifts for those Korean members from Nahoums which is a Jewish bakery shop and also the oldest in Kolkata. Then we had some cold drinks and snacks from a nearby shop and like this our first trip came to an end under our cultural exchange program.
