iPhone : Geetika Swami It’s wonderful that you chose to use a museum painting to share your wishes - but never a good idea to watermark images in the public domain (Wikimedia) and also would be good to credit the source : in this case the Shams Palace - Tehran Ethnographic Museum.

iPhone : Learn about the importance of #food habits and #cuisine in colonial Bengal and how it continues to influence life even today. Dr. Jayanta Sengupta will also talk about #culinary habits and #cooking spaces and how they are perceived today.
This is a #freeevent.

Buffer : Have you ever wondered, what made a newly independent nation in the 20th century go back to an ancient Indian empire / a #Buddhist symbol for inspiration for its national identity? bit.ly/2Tx4a3S India, it’s been 73 years since #IndependenceDay 🇮🇳

iPhone : Painted by Madhu, a specialist of the ‘chehra’ in he 1590s for the Akbarnama, this may be the closest thing we have to a true portrait of Akbar

👇The 58 ft 4 inches high idol of Adinatha at the Gwalior Fort. Carved out of a rock, wow!

iPhone : #EidAdhaMubarak to all those celebrating! The festival is celebrated at the end of a Hajj (5th pillar of Islam) 🕋 Img from the Futuh al-Haramayn - from the .National Museum collection - a sort of lonely-planet-Guide for pilgrims headed to Hajj. Take a look bit.ly/2TmULvG

iPhone : Yes! I’m all for this! A horrifying account of a #museumvisit - which raises uncomfortable questions - in the 21st century we still don’t have enough dialogue about #accessibility to art / culture but so many conferences about #Audiences & #publicengagement 🙄🙄 twitter.com/Firth4th/statu…

iPhone : What does it take to give a good haircut? 💇‍♀️ Apparently a lot, as I learnt from my recent experience in #Chandigarh - This painting by #BhupenKhakhar is a reminder to how important old-school parlours are, as opposed to the “experience lounges” coming up these days. 😡
