INDIAN ambassador to the Philippines, Shri Lalduhthlana Ralte, discussed the similarities and differences between India and the Philippines in a seminar titled “Contemporary South Asia” in the UST High School Auditorium.

Ambassador Ralte also discussed relations between the two countries and the importance of strengthening ties.

“Nobody can grow alone in this globalized world. We have to do everything by collaboration,” said the foreign diplomat, who even delivered a presentation about the economic progress of his homeland and how this may benefit the Philippines.

Aside from that, Ambassador Ralte also encouraged Thomasians to engage in foreign exchange programs with India, to further see what the country has to offer for international students.

Other speakers in the seminar included UST Asian Studies Professor Archie B. Resos and Professor Joefe B. Santarita from the University of the Philippines Asian Center.

Resos talked about the Indo-Pakistani wars, recounting its roots and discussing the consequences of the said conflict; while Santarita’s lecture highlighted on the economic schemes, in terms of micro-financing and poverty-reduction, of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Organized by the junior class of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Asian Studies Society, “Contemporary South Asia” comprised of a series of talks aimed at raising awareness about the present conditions in the said continental region, as well as a look-back into certain historical events.

“It is a very good opportunity for us to advocate South Asia,” says 3ASN1 block President Aileen Paradero, who spearheaded the event along with 3ASN2 block President Rhose Maegan Peña.

Paradero felt that South Asia is not as recognized as the other Asian regions. She added: “Ang aim naman dito ay parang i-bring ang South Asia sa limelight.”
