I am in Medinipur today to participate in the prize distribution ceremony of “Jangalmahal Cup”, the annual sporting event of the local youth of Paschim Medinipur, Bankura, Purulia and Birbhum districts, organized by our government.
Thousands and thousands of my brothers and sisters representing 2300 clubs of 4 districts participated in the event. Beautiful cultural shows were presented on the occasion.
I also flagged off the second “Jangalmahal Utsav”, marking 5-days of festivity in the area to boost local culture, traditions and performing arts.
Jangalmahal is happy, I am happy.
On this occasion, two Super-speciality hospitals at Onda and Chhatna in Bankura and a bouquet of health facilities were also inaugurated today.
My best wishes to everyone.

ABOUT THE EVENT
India and Indonesia share a multitude of similarities, with the two Asian giants elevating their bilateral relationship to the level of strategic partnership in 2005. They are connected by ties of trade, education, tourism and people-to-people exchanges and are natural partners for each other in various international fora. The rise of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), of which Indonesia is a key player, as an economic power; China’s rising assertiveness and the resulting uneasy power balance in the region; the global economy slowdown that forces emerging countries to look for new markets; as well as India’s “Look East” policy make it imperative to re-examine the relationship to ensure that it reaches its full potential. There is a need to deepen the engagement between India and Indonesia from an economic, strategic and cultural perspective.
In the book “Masala Bumbu: Enhancing the India-Indonesia Partnership”, Ambassador Gurjit Singh, along with a host of prominent contributors from India and Indonesia, scrutinize these ties from an extensive range of angles such as economic cooperation and the consumer class, security and non-traditional threats, democracy, culture, media, education and corporate social responsibilities — taking onboard perspectives from both sides. The Book Discussion will shed new light on ways to enhance the mutually beneficial relationship between India and Indonesia.
