While the Festival of India in the USSR celebrated the 40th annivarsary of India's Independence, the Festival of USSR in India will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Great October Refolution, and is expected to increase the awareness of classical Soviet art and culture in India, as welle as aspects of cntemporary life. About 20 exhibitions, 57 performing groups and several great master artists of the Soviet Union will be visiting 60 cities in India during the course of the year.
