UT administrator Shivraj Patil inaugurated Buddha's Home Coming, an international photo festival of Tibet by Indian photographer Vijay Kranti, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Panjab University, in Chandigarh on Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, Patil said, “The art, culture and music have no boundaries. Music and art have its own language.”
He said all photographs in this exhibition would be liked and appreciated in all states of India and across the world.
Congratulating the photographer, Patil said the exhibition presented the success story of a microscopic Tibetan refugee community in India in reviving their culture to its best glory in the past 50 years.
Patil said he was told that this photo festival was going to be presented in many other countries in the coming two years which would go a long way in spreading and promoting rich cultural values of the Tibetan Buddhist culture.
Showing keen interest in the exhibition, Patil said, “The photographs display an excellent combination of natural beauty and human devotion. It has been a great honour and privilege to open this excellent exhibition of photographs taken in the religious sites associated with Lord Buddha's life.”
