December 7 (Sunday) 1 pm

Opening Lunch of German Cultural Week Goa

Clube Tennis de Gaspar Dias, Miramar Circle, Miramar, Panjim

For our opening lunch this year we have chosen the restaurant La Brasserie at Clube Tennis de Gaspar Dias, at Miramar, Panjim. Members of IGSG and friends are most welcome.

Clube Tennis de Gaspar Dias was founded 1926 and then named “Clube Gaspar Dias”.

In 1934, Mrs. Josephine Hogaz, an American Industrial Magnate, introduced the game of Tennis in Goa. She also provided the finance for the making of the first tennis court in the Club premises. The Club then inherited the name of “CLUBE TENNIS DE GASPAR DIAS”. The Clubhouse is situated at a prime location, on Goa’s most attractive Miramar Beach.

Nearby was the Fort Gaspar Dias which construction was initiated 1598 by the Portuguese viceroy of the Portuguese Estate of India, D. Francisco da Gama. Together with the Fort of Reis Magos, located on the opposite side of the River Mandovi, the Fort Gaspar Dias served as a defense fort at the mouth of the river. Im 19. Century it crumbled with neglect and was ultimately razed to the ground to make way for development works for the road to Dona Paula.

Limited number of participants.

(Das Wunder von Bern) German with English subtitles

Art Chamber, Castelo Vermelho, Gauravaddo 115/a, Calangute

Director: Sönke Wortmann, colour, 117 min., 2003

A discerning portrait of the year 1954. The unexpected victory in the World Cup in Bern, Switzerland, is linked with tough everyday life in the industrial area of Ruhrpott. A late homecomer from the war must come to terms with civilian life. All's well that ends well. Germany wins the Cup and peace is restored in the family.

Entry free.

Experience of promoting international science and technology projects in Germany

Presentation by Ms. Dr. Ursula Kleinhans, former Responsible for International Projects at the Federal German Ministry of Science and Technology

Goa State Central Library, Lecture Hall, Sanskruti Bhavan, Patto, Panjim

India is one of the most important partners in international cooperation in science, technology and higher education. There is a long standing tradition of more than 60 years. More and more subjects in various fileds by many partners have been included in the last years and the mutual interest is expressed by government consultations on this subject every second year.

A mile stone in this cooperation was the opening of the Indo-German Science Center (IGSTC) in Gurgaon in December 2010. In this presentation, a short overview will be given, on which partners are cooperating and in which fields.

Visit to Casa Araujo Alvares

Loutolim, Goa’s first sound & light Heritage Museum

Casa Araujo Alvares, an Indo-Portuguese mansion built around 1800, wears her glory in antiquity and grandeur not unlike a grand dame of yore. From the wide entrance to the stately interiors, the mansion beckons the visitor, like a platter of sumptuous meals. If you have visited this place even once, you walk away with a warmth in your heart, that speaks of a generation of people that not only welcome graciously but also enhance their welcome with a generosity that enables you to return.
