From Professor Amitav Acharya:

Here is one news item with the whole team's photo. It came out in a daily paper in Orissa, entitled Khabara (literally: The News). There were several other stories about us in various news papers, including the leading Oriya daily Samaja, and the leading English language daily newspaper of India: Times of India. We were also on TV news on two channels, repeated through the day and next day.

The headline of the attached can be translated as: "Ravenshaw-American University Tie-Up." The write up (in summary) says that a delegation from American University led by Professor Amitav Acharya and consisting of 5 boys and two girls visited Ravenshaw University to study human security in India. They were very impressed with Orissan art and culture and found it to be of high quality. The delegation also visited Puri, Konarak and other places. They visited Ravenshaw's library, sports complex, and examination halls. There has been suggestions that Ravenshaw University will open a research centre on human security. American students will be welcome to study there. There are now over 70 foreign students studying at Ravenshaw University.
