He was offered a garland of 1,400 roses and gifted a traditional dhoti, punjabi, rosogollas and two mementoes. Before leaving, Blatter told the crowd, “It is with great emotion that I have been received in Calcutta — the city of football in India.”

The German department of the Ramakrishna Institute of Culture hosted its cultural programme on the life and times of Ramakrishna on March 26, 2007. The programme was the result of hard work put in by teachers and students under the supervision of Kona Chatterjee. The programme was presented in both Bengali and German.
Songs of Swami Vivekananda added to the spirit of the occasion. This was meant to spread the message of unity of mankind and the need for intercultural appreciation and understanding in an era of globalisation.
