Indo Nepal Students visit Eco Park

Recently, the University of Kolkata, through their Institute of Foreign Policy Studies, conducted a tour of Indian and Nepalese students to Eco Park and Wax Museum. This was part of the Bharat Nepal Shikshya Maitri Karyakram and was supported by the University Grant Commission. We in Hidco facilitated the visit. I am told that the guests liked the Eco Park and Wax Museum a lot.A photo (courtesy KU):

  1. Eco park should have water sports facilities since its around a large lake and will bring more tourist. Also kayaking should be promoted as professional sport and it bring more glory for WB at national and international sports competitions.

  2. I second that.. Kayaking is an eco-friendly activity which goes well with the theme of Eco park. Instead of polluting diesel engine operated boats - row boats, kayaks etc. should be allowed on the Eco park lake.
