This is a really strange story, Finland lures hi-end Indian tourists for winter experience:
Finland is wooing hi-end Indian travellers for a winter experience 'that rejuvenates the mind and body', includes a meeting with Santa Claus and a visit to the world's northernmost zoo in the Arctic Circle.`

More seriously, India growth story charms Nokia-land:
Though the current volume of trade between the two countries at 490 million euros hardly sounds happy, Finland -- from which the markets of Nordic and Baltic countries as well as Russia can be accessed -- is showcasing itself as the land of business opportunity. Or "India's gateway to Europe", as the Finns love to point out.

Gateway to Europe? Perhaps I'm Anglo-centric, but such a gateway seems like a case of rear entry here....
