Language Programmes

Hindi Study Program

Since 2011 a Hindi Study Program, tailor-made for students from the Nordic countries, runs in Varanasi. The language program has been developed by Dr. Mirja Juntunen, who is a Senior Lecturer in Hindi and the Academic Coordinator of the courses. The program was initially run by NCI in collaboration with the Gandhian Institute of Studies in Varanasi, but from 2012 it is organized by the Centre for the Study of Indian Languages and Society, which is an independent public trust set up to organize Hindi studies.
