Friendship for Peace and Progress

The film about the Indo-Soviet friendship that has given India several industrial projects either through joint-ventures or aid, such as Brauni Refinery in Bihar, Bhilai and Bokaro still plants etc. Around 70 industrial projects had been set up with Soviet technical and economic collaboration. Power projects set up with the Soviet assistance accounted for 20% of the total power generation in the country. The Suratgarh farm in the heart of the Rajasthan desert was India's first major mechanised state farm which emerged through Indo-Soviet co-operation.
