The Telegraph (Calcutta, India): ENDURING SYMBOLS - The awareness of India in Israel is of a different kind now
by K.P. Nayar
Just when it appeared that India-Israel relations had hit a plateau, a trailblazing project is under way which has the potential to change the bilateral relationship from one that is still largely cloak-and-dagger and under-cover to one the two peoples can genuinely embrace.
When the documentary, Shalom Bollywood, by the Australian academic and filmmaker, Danny Ben-Moshe, is completed and released, hopefully later this year, it may well be possible to draw a parallel between the engagement of each other by New Delhi and Tel Aviv on the one hand and India’s legendary people-to-people relationship with the Soviet Union on the other.
Ben-Moshe’s talk at the embassy, headlined “The 100th anniversary of Indian cinema: the Jewish story” and supported by B’nai B’rith International, a 170 year-old Jewish advocacy organization...more.
