Are you interested in knowing what you as a citizen should do with the archaeological monuments spread around the city? Do you want to know how conservation and management practice for a particular monument will affect the landscape and town planning around it?

Then, the National Monument Authority (NMA)-India International Centre (IIC) series of lectures is the event you must attend.

Starting Tuesday at 6.30pm (the lectures are free of cost for all), a monthly event would see experts talking about heritage, archaeology and related issues. Nalini Thakur from the School of Planning and Architecture would be delivering the first lecture.

“The idea is to start a discussion, a debate as to what we are striving to achieve in terms of categorisation of monuments and gradation,” said Himanshu Prabha Ray, NMA chairperson.The audio-video tapes of all the lectures will be uploaded on the NMA website.
