The cuisine changes every 200 miles (321km) you travel in any direction; the language and the dialect are different every 300 miles (482km); and cultural nuances shift subtly as you travel across the length and breadth of the country. This makes each state in India unique,” Panda advised Hindustan Times.

“There are tremendous synergies that exist between Canada and India. I believe that with a little common sense, some hard-nosed business acumen, and political will, we can forge an incredibly strong, mutually beneficial relationship,” Panda stated.
