Kunna Dash

President, India Japan Friendship Center

Mr. Kunna Dash as President of India-Japan Friendship Center , an NPO registered in Japan government since 2006 has been working to foster art & culture, tourism, education and delving at signing treaties on trade & commerce to make each other rich and prosperous. He has taken up assignments in key positions as International Tourism Ambassador of Kyoto, Japan and Advisor to NSDC, New Delhi, Govt. of India. Numerous events like Japan year in Odisha & Odisha festivals in Japan have been actively organized under his leadership to add feathers to the cap of cultural integrity. Understanding the essence of education Mr. Dash has opened a CBSE school in the name Chandra Sekhar Academy in Puri (Odisha) India in the year 2004 which has become the only school in the state where apart from CBSE curricula ,Japanese language & culture has been taught from elementary to senior secondary (+2) level. He has also have opened a Japanese language centre and an IT centre in the school premises to prepare students as per the demand of the workplace especially in the Japanese companies in India & in Japan. Every year scores of Japanese volunteers and interns from different universities of Japan come here to have in-depth research on Indian culture, Odia language, yoga & Ayurveda etc. Mr. Dash and his team provide them with ample opportunity to grasp the ethics of Indian / Odian cultural heritage. He has also opened a sister school of Chandra Sekhar Academy in Kyoto, the first ever Indian based English medium school in Kansai region, western Japan to help out the children of Indian as well as its peripheral countries to avail international English curricula at an affordable price. Special language options of Hindi & Odia have been introduced to cater the interest of Indian / Odia diaspora in Japan. Mr. Dash believes in teamwork and together we are stronger. He would like to do many more things ahead for my country as well as for my native state Odisha & it’s people. Odisha could be the gateway of commerce for south-east Asean nations if we all put our efforts on it. During his recent stay in Odisha, he visited near by hamlets & villages near Chandra Sekhar Academy. Most of the students are comprising of the rural vicinity. Time & again they have raised voices about their difficulties in accessing our online classes: Sometimes no electricity, sometimes network not available and even some of them have complained they don’t have money to purchase a handset for this. Mr. Dash has been a promoting the idea that if we support a youth with this one & half years IT course & as the course has a huge demand in Japan , he can have a lucrative career in Japanese companies after successful completion of the course. There by he can support him as well as his family & in this process he can add to the fiscal growth of his village. We can sponsor / donate these rural youths or can approach organizations those are involved in helping out poverty stricken students or we propose some companies which help out these IT students to complete the course & after completion they are posted into these companies. Definitely some revelation can be made if it is addressed unanimously.
