At Kafla Intercontinetal we pursue the aims and activities of building up bridges of understanding between the peoples of the world. Kafla symbolizes man’s primeval search for the unknown, the less-known and the ill-known. Kafla is another name for the wanderer and the foot-loose, at least in the realm of the mind and the soul. Kafla is a Hindustani word. Its literary meaning is a group of people going on a long journey, with a built up sense of security. So with Kafla we started a seemingly endless journey of ideas, thoughts, memories, desires and wishes. the whole gamut of human expression. We try to build bridges of understanding, of friendships, of cultures and sub-cultures through Kafla Inter-Continental, a no way small venture to aspire for. Kafla will be on the move to all the regions of the world to report on their cultures, literature, art and artifacts.
