India in Lithuania would like to congratulate Deimantas Valanciunas, a Professor at Vilnius University, who participated in the 10th World Conference of the Hindi language Vishwa Hindi Sammelan. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi also attended the conference. Mr Valanciunas got an award of appreciation for spreading the Hindi language and keeping it alive. It is indeed something to celebrate, as people like Mr Valanciunas are doing so much to build the bridges between India and Lithuania. We hope that the connections between India and Lithuania will become even closer in the following years.
