It was an exhibition on Ganga – the living river at National Museum. Titled Ganga : River of Life & Eternity; this was not just paintings and sculptures on Ganga but a story-telling arty narrative.

While I have been familiar with lot of myths and stories around Ganga, it was the coming together of different myths in Vedas and Puranas or accounts in Indian epics or scriptures or even sacred narratives in mahatamyas of Ganga as a deity that made this exhibition unique and a learning experience in Indian thought.

P.S. Some of these stories in a different post – coming soon!
