Dilli Nama - A Photo Exhibition On Delhi

October 29, 2010

During the Common Wealth Games, I visited this photo exhibition called "Dilli Nama".   Actually being a Delhite at heart, it always interests me to know the history of the place.  This exhibition was organized by Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC) at India Habitat Centre and Red Fort.  The one I visited was India Habitat Centre.  It was a treat for the eyes as it showed the so very different facets of Delhi be it colonial, migrant, old, cultural, sufi or the new face of Delhi.  The pictures of refugee Delhi was also touching. Have a look...

The exhibition was a collage of drawings, photographs and replicas of certain areas of Delhi showed the vast diversity of the city.

So, this is Delhi!

This is how the exhibition looked like

Well, this was an intersting question asked? "Dilli Kiski ?"

Delhi does not really have it's speciality in handicraft items, but is a beautiful fusion of art and hadicrafts from all the States of the India

The three faces of Delhi - Old, sarkari and millenium!



PS - All pics clicked by me for a change!

Yeah, it was amazing to see those! I have not put all pics, there were more.

Btw, hope by putting these pics, I have not infringed on their right for pics? Nobody stopped me from clicking so I thought may be they are fine with it. God knows! Any idea?

Hmmm..that aspect is there. but considering the fact that these are actully not photos, but pamphlets sort of.. i don't think it will come under copyright violation.

anyways, just give the credit and no problems.
