Experience outside of the class

The Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation course provides not only learnings for the start-up but also the experience of the local culture.

Last Sunday, we went to a local theme park in Hubli called Rock Garden. There were many exhibitions and statues that show the traditional Indian life, house, and artistic works. My Indian friends kindly explained each exhibition and the history of India etc. The Rock Garden also has many activities inside such as the zip coaster and the house ride. Especially, the mud bath was the most exciting activity. I, unfortunately, did not have the clothes to change and could not enter it but everyone playing in the mud bath looked very excited.

During we stay there, there were a lot of children and we, especially student from abroad, were surrounded by them in many times. One of my friends said to me that the foreign people is very rare here and for some of the kids, we are the first and last foreigner they meet in their lives. I felt like I was a celebrity but sometimes felt fear a little bit.

The goal of the course is approaching but I want to stay more and don’t wanna leave Hubli!
