There is a deep friendship, and mutual cultural
admiration between the French and Indian peoples. We are both nations
with a rich history, and extremely talented artists and innovators. It
is our endeavour to bring them closer together and build a true
Indo-French community of artists. That is the purpose of the Villa
Swagatam initiative, which I have the pleasure of inaugurating today. I
warmly thank the Indian partners who will open their residencies to
French writers and artists all over India.
