Sheela Krishnaswamy – India
  • 15 members of the Indian Dietetic Association were in attendance at the ICD 2016 in Granada, Spain.  Right from the time we got to shout ‘Hola’ and cheer for our country flag at the inaugural ceremony, up until we said goodbye to many of our friends after the closing ceremony, we created many memories.  We learnt from the symposia, we discussed at the workshops, we bonded during tea & lunch breaks, we made new friends, we laughed, talked, exchanged information at the wonderful dinners. 
     
    The Indian delegation presented papers, posters, conducted workshops and enthusiastically participated in all the events of the conference.  We even managed to dine at an all-vegetarian restaurant in Granada, thanks to our ICDA friends. 
     
    The most poignant moment for us was when the Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, was quoted in the inaugural ceremony - “The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed”.
