How do I meet people in India?

When we asked people living in India about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"In 2010 we moved from New Zealand to Bangalore for my wife to take up a teaching role, along with us we brought our youngest son who was 9 at the time. We enrolled him in Trio World School (now Trio World Academy) where my wife was teaching. The school was a lot like being part of a large extended family, friendships were forged that have lasted till today and I expect beyond. At the time Trio being a International School following the Cambridge curriculum was an excellent fit and provided an incredible foundation for our son's future. Today Trio offers Cambridge and IB Curriculum's at Trio World Academy, ICSE Indian curriculum at Trio World School and world class kindergarten care at Trio Tots. I would absolutely recommend this school to parents wanting to educate their children in Bangalore," said another retiree in living in Bangalore, India.

"Learning the traditional handicrafts and culinary classes, the expats club, the Local city clubs for networking, joining Red Cross and other NGO"s who have volunteers from school and colleges, working for the masses and improving the quality of life," explained a retiree in Hyderabad.
