Ideas and stories traverse the globe and help us to stay connected even when we remain rooted to one place! Join us for a series presented in association with Tara Books that aims, through storytelling and activity-based interactions, to focus on how we might make sense of books cross-culturally.
Working with over half a dozen publishers in Korea, there are currently 12 Tara titles available in Korean. Travelling Titles is a series of talks and interactions, focuses on 5 popular titles, one every month, from July to November 2020.
We present this month, an omnibus edition with all 5 episodes of the Travelling Titles series, unfolding engaging narratives, unique illustrations, captivating tonal inflections, vibrant colours and the carefully executed, thoughtful processes that go in to the making of these unique books. We bring you short notes on the artists and art work and much else in this engaging series. Editors from Korea join us for this programme as do Korean language students from InKo Centre who read the Korean version to bring alive the intercultural nuances of these books.
Amazing Grace, a profound and mellifluous hymn, has comforted people around the world for decades. Arirang, a soulful and melodious Korean folk song, has comforted Koreans for centuries.
We are delighted, as we close what has been a challenging year and look forward with hope to brighter year ahead, to present Amazing Arirang, a song specially arranged for and presented in association with Hello K.
Amazing Arirang is an arrangement based on the fact that these two comforting songs from different cultures share the same musical structure and harmony.
We hope that this song will comfort everyone in the global community who have been affected or are struggling to overcome COVID-19 and to stay strong and hopeful of a healthier, happier year ahead!

Since ancient times, people in Korea, as indeed in India, have maintained a belief that food and medicine have the same origin and hence perform the same function, following the adage that ‘food is the best medicine’.
With harvests from lush green rice paddies, sun-drenched tangerine orchards, and mountain valley chili pepper farms, Korean food exudes freshness. It delights the senses, invigorates the palate - and invites foodies to explore regional variations.
Korean Cooking for Indian Homes, a booklet prepared by the Korea Toursim Organisation, is intended as a guide for people who may want to try cooking Korean food at home. The recipes included in this book have been slightly modified to suit the Indian palate and availability of ingredients.
All recipes included in this book have been sourced from www.hansik.org – managed by the Korea Food Promotion Institute, a public institution established with the purpose of promoting and globalizing the traditions of Korean food.
In an episodic series we introduce 10 recipes that could easily be prepared in Indian homes. With begin with Beachu Kimchi (Cabbage Kimchi) and Japchae (Glass noodles with sauteed vegetables). Along with the recipe, cooking instructions and useful tips, we are delighted to share a video link of a collaboration initiated by the Korea Tourism Organisation with an influencer Indian chef, promoting the recipes highlighted in the booklet.
