UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon would open an exhibition "Portraits of Power" by a retired Indian diplomat Placido D'Souza at the United Nations headquarters here on August 4.

The exhibition is being organised by The Society for Promotion of Indian Culture and Experience, UNSRC/SPICE-Indian Club.

During the span of his career, Ambassador D'Souza met some well-known personalities, sketched many of them and obtained their autographs. The exhibition will remain open till August 14.

"Drawing has been for me, a way to have an activity different from my work as a diplomat that I was for 34 years. I have had the opportunity to meet well-known personalities all over the world. I have sketched them and obtained their autographs on the sketches, which helped me get closer to them and transformed the meetings into memorable moments," D'Souza said.

D'Souza has also been a journalist, writing regularly for the Indian and foreign press, and, while in service, initiated and edited three journals for about twenty years.
