india global village2 india global villageIndia Club hosted the Bollywood Night in January 2016 for the IE students to get a chance to shake on the beats of Bollywood music. The event was a hit with more than 300 students showing up at the party to enjoy the open bar and move their hips. The pre-party arrangements were pretty exciting as we offered the taste of Indian alcohol for the raffle winners which was based on random ticket purchasing activity. The interest level among party lovers raised with this activity and we were able to create a buzz for the event that led to an accelerated interest in attending the night.

The Bollywood Night was all set to surprise the attendees with Bollywood dances by India club members. We had organized a series of dance performances to entertain the crowd which turned out to be a hit. Those performances set the theme and everyone set out to dance all night without a pause.

We offered lip smacking snacks and drinks at open bar which set the night on fire with energy. People kept eating, drinking and dancing all night. No one wanted to leave even when the party was over. The event was a hit and all attendees sent us appreciations and showed interest for upcoming events to be organized by IE India Club.

GLOBAL VILLAGE – The Charm of India

Written on April 26, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

The dawn of June 11, 2015 was different. There was a special feeling in the air; a feeling of diversity, excitement and energy. While all country clubs at IE started their day with the preparation to make an impactful presentation of their country’s culture and food, we as India Club coordinators were busy planning our presentations of dance performances, traditional dresses for all Indian attendees, local cuisine for all members of IE family and an experience of the Indian hospitality.

We organized the Global Village 2015 representing India Club at IE University. The event saw us dancing on the beats of Bollywood music and mesmerizing the crowd, making them dance with us. The songs and the dance performances were highly appreciated by all attendees of the Global Village. It was not just few members of the club who performed, but the coordinators rolled up their sleeves and stepped on stage to show how we move with music. Following the dance, came the food. We had arranged for the super delicacies prepared by the best Indian caterer in town. The food kept bringing audiences back to our stall and taste all different varieties we had to offer. No wonder, we were at the verge of exhausting our excessive food supply hours before the event was scheduled to get over. 

We all from India Club were dressed in traditional Indian attire to give a glimpse of the Indian culture. The colorful combination of dresses and decors sparkled the Indian stall. We were able to present the true show of India along with all other country clubs making the Global Village a successful event of culture diversity and cross border unity.

IE India Bollywood Night

Written on June 5, 2015 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

india1aindia2aOn 29th May hosted by IE India Club Madrid Chapter, witnessed a complete package ranging from Bollywood performances prepared by IMBA students to lip smacking Indian snacks.  The nightlong party held at Larios Café, one of the coolest clubs in Madrid, with 3 hours open bar left every one thrilled, as it was one of its kinds hosted this year giving everyone a chance to learn and share some Bollywood moves. Although the planned performances, cocktail hours, Indian snacks etc went flawless but it was the number of IE students who came that made this night a huge success. A tradition that left everyone spellbound was the people dancing to the tunes of “Dhol”, a double-headed drum quite popular in Indian weddings. Dozens of rhythms played on the dhol gave everyone an Indian feel and the India Club left no stone unturned to ensure everyone enjoys a lot.

The team hopes that everyone who attended the event would have enjoyed it as much as the team did. For those of you who were unable to attend, we missed you and wish to see you in next party.

IE India Club 2014 Events

Written on January 5, 2015 by Campus Life in Geographic

Diwali IndiaThe last quarter of 2014 has been quite dynamic for the IE India Club, which hosted two major events during this time, the annual Diwali party and a conference by Sam Pitroda which was also co-hosted by Campus life. The combination of these two events creates a good social and educational balance in the club’s activities.

Diwali, one of the most important Indian festivals, signifies the victory of good over evil and 300 people joined for the huge celebration and had a feast of traditional Indian cuisine! The event started with a prayer to Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati and to Lord Ganesha. This was followed by the party’s highlight which were the dances performed by a group of IE students. No one could resist the lure of the Bollywood beats and the dance floor was packed through the whole evening. By the end of the evening every one diwali india2present at the party mastered at least a couple Bollywood dance moves and were immensely enjoying dancing to the tunes of Bollywood! Prizes were also given to the ‘Best dressed’ and ‘Best dancing couple’.

Mr. Sam Pitroda, was an advisor to the former Indian Prime Minister on Public Information, Infrastructure and Innovation. The conference was very enlightening as he took us through his journey so far and he also shared his insights on topics such as mobile technology and partnering with India 2020. Thereafter, students got a chance to interact with him during the networking cocktail where the discussion ranged from politics to entrepreneurship.

India Night – Diwali celebration

Written on December 15, 2013 by Campus Life in Geographic

India nightEvery year, IE India Club organizes its flagship event to celebrate Diwali since Diwali is one of the most recognizable Indian festivals globally. The celebrations this year began with a small prayer to the gods for prosperity. This was followed by a small rangoli competition where teams put together traditional designs on the floor using rice powders and colors.
The winning teams were given small prizes that were handed over by the representatives of the Indian Embassy. Any Indian event is of course not complete without a full culinary experience and this was done with a good selection of starters and food representing different cuisines from India. We also served Indian beer to give a true Indian experience.
The entertainment of the night began with a flashy performance from a group of Indian girls from the Indian community at Madrid that graciously accepted to perform at our event. There were two other exciting performances by the students from IE.
The night concluded with dancing and celebrating the Indian culture and spirit. With attendance of 250 people, great food, drinks, dancing, inclusion and immersion we achieved what IE India Club set out to do – give the IE Experience an Indian flavour and celebrate as a group – a group that might be the most diverse in the world but comes together as one to celebrate that diversity.
