Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

A photographic exhibition entitled "Kindred Nations: The United States and India:1783-1947" was today inaugurated here by acting US Consul General Cory Wilcox.

The exhibition featured several works related to the city which included Swami Vivekananda at Green Acre School in Maryland, USA in 1894, American businessman John Atkinson's house in Kolkata, Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's meeting with author Helen Keller.

Wilcox said, "people-to-people engagement is the anchor of the US-India relationship. Our bilateral relationship is in full bloom because of people like you who make the effort to bridge our two nations together through culture, religion, business, and education".

"We hope this exhibition of past engagement sparks our imagination for the future, seeing how we can take steps to improve the lives of the next generations in both our countries", he said.

Lindsay Amini, Director of Cultural Programs, Meridian International Center and Jayanta Sengupta, Director of Indian Museum were present at the inauguration of the exhibition at the Indian Museum.

The sizing of the modular system is done strategically to

make it portable and allows easy assembly. One of the remarkable features that help Luminy standout is that it can be connected to form roofs and rooms and the same parts can be used to form new spaces."
