Bandar Seri Begawan - India is famous for a variety of things. One important entity in them is the Indian education.
Various opportunities are provided by Indian education, both private and public sectors, for the Non-Resident Indians (NRI) as well as to people of Indian origin and overseas students.
To make these things known to the Indian community in Bandar Seri Begawan, the Indian Association of Bandar Seri Begawan organised a talk titled "Indian Education for NRIs" yesterday.
Around 60 members and family members of the association benefited from the event.
