Celebrating the diversity of India

In a bid to reveal the religious diversity and cultural essence of our mysterious neighbour India, the Indian Council for Cultural Relations will hold an exhibition of paintings and photographs at the Lionel Wendt Gallery this week.

The three-day exhibition will start on May 24 at 6 p.m. Visitors can also witness the display of the paintings, which are the digital imprints on canvas, and photographs on May 25 and 26 from 6 p.m to 9 p.m.

ICCR Director Dinkar Astana said, ""There are many activities such as these arranged by the council. They are intended for improving and strengthening the relationship between India and Sri Lanka.

Entrance is free for the public. Thus, anyone can walk in and take a look at the masterpieces.

The paintings showcase the work of 14 eminent Indian artists and the photography is by Amit Mehra, a distinguished photographer from New Delhi.
