    What’s Up, Germany? is a one-stop-shop for all that one needs to know about Indo-German cooperation and latest updates from both countries. Germany as a country and German as a language have fascinated me since my school days when I started learning German as a foreign language. I have been to Germany a few times and work closely with my colleagues in the DACH region. This magazine keeps me up-to-date, and more importantly, “connected” to things I’ve always had a longing for, but may otherwise not be able to follow due to my hectic lifestyle. I love everything about the “mag with swag” – the overall look and feel, layout/design, structure and content. Thanks to What’s Up, Germany?, I could recently boast about knowing stuff about 60 years of Indo-German development cooperation during an official phone call! I started with the ice-breaker “You know what ….” Thank you What’s Up, Germany?’s team for all that you do to put this together. Commendable work!

    As a German language expert who studied Germanistik 15 years ago, I am always enthralled to see how Indo-German relations are helping India tackle its climatic and environmental challenges. Having lived in Germany for quite some time, this platform provides me updates, which I may not have known in my busy schedule. Keep up the great job team!
