Another bridge between India and Turkey

Bursa is a bustling town nestling among the hills with an opening to the Sea of Marmara and onwards to Europe. The 8th Bursa International Photo Exhibition focused on rituals and featured India as the Guest Country. There were participants from 12 countries in all. We inaugurated the event along with the Bursa Mayor and also met the Bursa Governor. 

Four amazing Indian photographers showcased the Kumbhamela, Narbada traditions, religious rituals and role of rituals in daily life in an enclosure set aside for the Indian pavilion. A local artist featured a set of photos from Varanasi showing the growing appeal of India and affection for Indians. The Exhibition revealed how rituals connect people and cultures in celebrations and anxieties, interactions with nature and faith, and even in the conduct of daily life.

Today, we are the fastest growing major economy, largest destination of greenfield investments, hub of technology and innovation, home to the most vibrant democracy and endowed with a youth population that is substantially empowered to realize their dreams. Most importantly, India has emerged as the land with a moral compass that all others look up to. The world needs India and India is prepared to play its due role in global affairs.
