The Theme:

With political, social and economic impact of globalization, and ever increasing diversity we are caught on different points of the cultural continuum from the 'mixed salad' to the 'melting pot' – part of 'The Dance of Culture'.
Can this metaphor inspire us transactional analysts to explore and, if needed, change our roles in this dance of culture and invite others to join us? India with its diverse cultures invites YOU to "The Dance of Culture".

The City:

Ernakulam*, the commercial capital of Kerala, and the eastern, mainland portion of the city of Kochi (erstwhile Cochin) served by an international airport, fine communication facilities, excellent accommodation, modern amenities and a lot of attractive tourist places gives a breathtaking experience for its visitors and settlers.

Kochi is a fascinating blend of cultures. From time immemorial, it has been the favorite destination of globe-trotters and explorers. Blessed by one of the finest natural harbors in the world, Kochi has been eulogised as the Queen of the Arabian Sea. In and around Kochi are several cities of monumental value, but step into Fort Kochi, and you are in a totally different world. The Chinese fishing nets, the Jewish Synagogue, the Dutch palace, the Portuguese and British Architecture, all are the unique features of Kochi.
