Director’s message

As I mentioned here the last time, the India-UK Year of Culture is now in full swing. May and June have been busy with very successful events. The visit of Indian naval Ship ‘Tarkash’ to the Thames saw over a thousand people participate. The Jaipur Literature Festival at British Library drew in huge crowds over two days with some great sessions and live music. Ravishankar’s only Opera ‘Sukanya’ was unique and spectacular and we were delighted that we supported the production. The photo-exhibition on India-UK Cricket history which premiered at the Lords, is on display at The Nehru Centre and will be travelling to Birmingham and Edinburgh in July and August.
