UK High Commissioner in India attracts Indian students by praising Indian Curry in UK

Sir James Bevan, the UK High Commissioner in India is trying his earnest to attract rather convince Indian students to study in Britain. This comes as a measure after tougher visa system and exchange rates started becoming difficult hindrances for Indian students to handle.

In his speech on January 9th at Delhi University, he said that the best Indian food in the world is being served in London.

The Indian students studying at UK universities had come down by almost a quarter in 2011-2012.Also the constant decline in the value of rupee have also deterred Indians from studying abroad.

Here’s something that will surprise you: visas are not a problem. Really,” Sir James told his audience.

“We want the world’s best and brightest, we have set no limit on the numbers of foreign students who can come to Britain. No limit. So if you are a genuine student with a place at a UK university, you will get your visa,” he added.

Sir James added: “Camellia Punjabi, who introduced regional Indian cuisine to the UK, said recently that the best Indian food in the world is now served in London.

“We want you. We in the UK want the world’s best and brightest to come and study in our country…there’s a global competition for the best and brightest: you students here are in that category. We want you in Britain,” he told the students.
