Global Connections: Can you connect Germany with India?

When you mention two countries as different as Germany and India, you wouldn't naturally think that they have much in common.

But if you stretch your mind a little bit and think a tad bit harder, you would be surprised to learn they're much more similar than you think.

We've chosen Germany and India as our fourth set of countries in a segment on CNN International's "Connect the World," that we're calling "Global Connections."

Germany is one of the world's leading economic powers and has long-held a place of importance in world affairs. It is located in western Europe, has a long tradition of producing beautiful music and literature and of course, the country is famous for its beer.

India on the other is a recent power player on the global stage and is famous for having the Bollywood film industry, amazing food and of course its people.

So what on earth could the connections between these two countries possibly be?

Well, that's why we are relying on YOU.

We need you to send in your ideas and comments on what connections exist - whether it be text, video or photos. We'll be choosing the best ones and then airing them on CNN International. This is your chance to appear on the show to share your connections with the world.

The connections can be anything from culture and geography to music and the economy.

We also want to hear your personal stories too. Perhaps you have a family member that moved from one country to the other years ago and you want to get in touch? Maybe you visited one country years ago on holiday and something special happened? Whatever connection you think there is, we want to know.

All you have to do is leave your comments below on what connections you think exist and then one of our team members will be in touch.

Now it's time for you to get involved - get connecting!
