Among the exciting events that will take place on the sidelines of the Congress will be a Classical Indian (Hindustani) Music Concert by the renowned artist Rashid Khan, an Indian Dance-Drama (Bharata Natyam) by the troupe Nrityashree (lead by Professor C V Chandrasekhar) and the English play, A disappearing number. Some 40 lucky delegates/accompanying persons will get the opportunity to play chess against the current World Champion Grandmaster Vishy Anand. There will be some public out-reach events also during the Congress. India, of course, is a wonderful tourist destination catering to every taste and interest.
