We l c o m e In Collaboration With: Dear colleague and friend, Welcome to Soy Innovation India! One of the world’s most colorful and vibrant cultures, India has the potential to leverage its agricultural legacy and technological progress into something even more impressive than a Bollywood extravaganza: high quality nutrition for an increasingly hungry planet. Of course, India is already one of the world’s largest producers of soybeans, but the potential for this incredibly valuable food source to be grown and utilized more efficiently requires that the worldwide food and agricultural industry invest in Soy Innovation!

Media Partners

The second conference in this extremely important series, Soy Innovation India recognizes that success in developing the production, processing and consumption of soybeans in India, Southeast Asia, and other emerging markets demands the involvement of business leaders, government officials, NGO and academic experts. Technologies and business strategies from around the world must be evaluated and adapted for developing country needs. Soy Innovation India has been designed to do just that, providing the tools to grow your business, whether you are interested in the best science on soy and health; technological innovations to make soy processing more efficient or functional; networking to create strong, regional soybean value chains; or information to promote the processing and applications for soy in animal feed and biofuels.

Local Partner

We sincerely hope you find this event to be the source of inspiration and intelligence your business needs to reach new heights of success! Sincerely,

Association Partner Sarah Day Levesque Conference Chair

Things to do in and around New Delhi, India Humayun’s Tomb

Hauz Khas

Bharat Scouts and Guides Marg, New Delhi Humayun’s Tomb combines Persian style with local craftsmanship, and is surrounded by the fiercely symmetrical Mughal gardens: take a stroll here at dusk. This tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal.

Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi Discover the district of Hauz Khas with its crumbling Mughal tombs and tempting art, antique and fashion boutiques. Hauz Khas is an area in Delhi that was developed during the time of Firuz Shah Tughluq (reg. 1351- 88) along a water reservoir, now commonly referred to as the “Hauz Khas” (royal tank). As a growing sultanate in India, Delhi was facing an acute water shortage, and the water reservoir (hauz) was conceived of as a public utility project to collect rainwater over a large expanse of land. The hauz itself was dug during the time of Ala al Din Khalji (reg. 1296 -1316) and re-excavated during the time of Firuz Shah Tughluq, who then built the madrasa complex and other settlements around it. 600 meters wide by 700 meters long and 4 meters deep, the tank has a storage capacity of 800,000 cubic meters of water. In total, the Hauz Khas madrasa complex comprises a madrasa, mosque, Firuz Shah’s tomb, and six domed pavilions, all built between 1352 and 1354 along the south and east edges of the water reservoir.

Red Fort Mahatma Gandhi Marg, New Delhi Visit the great sandstone carcass of the Red Fort, and imagine the last days of the Mughal empire and the British era. The Red Fort was the palace for Muslim Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s new capital, Shahjahanabad, the seventh Muslim city in the Delhi site. He moved his capital from Agra in a move designed to bring prestige to his reign, and to provide ample opportunity to apply his ambitious building schemes and interests. The Red Fort stands at the eastern edge of Shahjahanabad, and gets its name from the massive wall of red sandstone that defines its eight sides.

Indira Gandhi Smiriti Memorial Museum 1 Safdarjang Rd, New Delhi Visit the former home of Indira Gandhi, Indira Gandhi Smriti, and learn about India’s most powerful dynasty. The Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum is located in New Delhi at 1 Safdarjung Road in the home where she lived. The house stands in a lovely garden with mature trees and flowering plants. It contains a collection of photographs documenting her life from her childhood to her days as prime minister. In addition, a number of rooms have been dedicated to her son Rajiv Gandhi who was assassinated in May 1991. Her library and living room have been maintained just as she kept them. These rooms are not open to the public. However, they can be viewed through the windows from the gardens.

National Museum Maulana Azad Road, New Delhi Get flabbergasted by the wealth of Indian art at the National Museum. The National Museum has in its possession over 2,00,000 works of exquisite art, both of Indian and Foreign origin covering more than 5,000 years of our cultural heritage. Its rich holdings of various creative traditions and disciplines which represents a unity amidst diversity, an unmatched blend of the past with the present and strong perspective for the future, brings history to life. Apart from the collections of Pre-historic Archaeology, Archaeology, Jewellery, Paintings, Decorative arts, Manuscripts, Central Asian Antiquities, Arms and Armour, etc., the Museum today has a separate branches of publication, Hindi, Public Relations, Education, Library, Exhibition cell, Display, Modelling, Photography, Security and Administration.

Lodhi Gardens Lodhi Road, New Delhi Wander around Lodhi Gardens on a Sunday afternoon, the perfect place for people watching. Lodhi Gardens are one of the most pleasant green spaces in Delhi – with some labeled trees to help visitors from overseas become familiar with the Indian flora. The area was used as a burial for Delhi’s (pre-Mughal) Sayyid and Lodhi rulers. Mohammad Shar’s tomb (1450) can be seen as a predecessor for architecture of Humayun’s tomb and Sikander Lodhi’s tomb (1571) is set within a walled enclosure and clearly related to Humayun’s tomb garden. The domed mausoleums appear to have been sited in an open landscape, rather as the Ancient Greeks placed temples. The building of monumental tombs runs against the principles of Islam and it is probable that Delhi’s Turkish Sultans brought the idea from Persia to India. Lodi Gardens are therefore a good place to reflect on the origins of Mughal garden design. The land has passed into the ownership of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and is now a public park.
