Moments of joy from a memorable tenure

Ambassador and Mrs Kamsvåg share their favorite travel memories from their memorable four years in India, on the day they leave.

"It is impossible to choose between the many rich experiences we have had travelling all over India.  However, if I have to choose it will be some of the many fascinating meetings with people all over India.  The enthusiastic health workers in the country side of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Bihar working to improve maternal and new born health through the Norway India Partnership Initiative (NIPI) or interesting people we met like Mr. Habibullah Kasaana, an 85 year old, who spoke about when he fought with a bear – and won; or a master grafter of mangos, Kalimullah Khan, who was growing 300 different varieties of the delicious fruit at the same tree.”
