The Media Ambassadors India – Germany, is a program funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation and is run in cooperation with the Center for Media Competence at the University of Tübingen.
As part of their fellowship program, German journalists visiting India had an interactive session with the DHANAK team.
The visitors were keen on understanding the delicate societal structure in India, and inter-religious marriages.
They were inquisitive about the different types of marriages, challenges of the Special Marriage Act, Inter-religious marriages, and the role of religion in marriages. They also shared the challenges of Inter-faith marriages in their country.
