What we're about

This group is for people in New Jersey and around who in addition to their international friends are looking to connect with other Indian people to form real friendships & wholesome connections and make the most of what New Jersey has to offer! We will be arranging plenty of activities to socialize and mingle with like minded people over evening drinks and dinners, trips to movies which will include not just Bollywood but also good quality international cinema, fairs, festivals, museums, bonfire nights, west end shows, afternoon tea, coffee meets, Talks, picnics in the summer, day trips and much more.

The idea is to have the best of both the worlds, all the incredible things about India - Tasty Indian food, the colours, the loud laughs, chatter & jokes in hindi and other vernacular languages, an appreciation for all the ridiculousness of bollywood in addition to the beautiful sites of NJ, quirkiness of varied culture, pints, tea & scones and all the world class international experiences from restaurants, shows, exhibitions to galleries that New Jersey can offer! We want it all!

This is not a dating or a hook-up site. The main agenda is: comradery, forming genuine friendships, having fun while enjoying everything in and around New Jersey. We are open to Indian people of all ages, marital statuses, income brackets etc...as we only want to meet nice and interesting folks without any hidden agenda or judgement! The core of the group is very genuine, intelligent, cultured & super liberal and we seek the same in you!
