Subject: Re-Live The Past
We are before with some thing that you may ignore all together or enjoy reading it if you have the time “to re-live the past.”
This is about an Exhibition that puts forth: “Rare images of Swami Vivekananda in the Parliament of World’s Religions and of Anandibai Joshee holding her first American degree in the 19th century are a part of an exhibition that demonstrates India’s historic ties with the US. By Karan Bhardwaj”. The interesting write-up from “The Pioneer” of March 16, is attached.
To induce you to look up the attachment, here are some excerpts from that:
· Sitting beside Rabindranath Tagore and sharing his thoughts is like spending one’s days beside the sacred river, drinking seep of honeyed wisdom,” American activist and author Helen Keller described her meeting with India’s renowned poet Rabindranath Tagore when he visited New York in 1921.
· Swami Vivekananda is seen enjoying an afternoon outing along with his international counterparts in the lawns of Green Acre School, Eliot, Maine in 1984. This school, a meeting-place for the study of world religions, was just one stop on a tour in which Vivekenanda introduced the West to Hinduism and yoga.
· Though India got its independence in 1947, the cultural and political exchange started ages ago. David Mees, cultural attache, American Embassy, tells us, “It started soon after the founding of American Republic when the first American President George Washington sent a Consul to Kolkata, which was not credentialled by the British governor general. There was some personal animosity there. After that, American merchants started trade with India. They preferred to avoid British middlemen and instead dealt with Indian commercial agents which provided opportunities to learn first-hand about the places and people they encountered.
Friends, it is some thing like this: if you have the taste for this, you will enjoy. In case it does not suit your busy schedule or temperament, forget about it. We accept the blame to have wasted your time and beg to be forgiven.
