Every museum is full of nice things. That's the opposite of before. It was important things or serious things. Now we have interesting things ❤ #museum #indianmuseums #tribalmuseum #sonya58 #rahilspictography😇 #rahilspictography #climatechange #india #traveldiares 🙌🙌

Whatte Byooti! 😍 We were so awestruck by the intricate elements of the building that we didn't end up seeing most exhibits! The classic dilemma, what should we see, the space or the exhibits?! This museum needs multiple visits.

In India, on a day to day basis, one comes across signs and notices that often cofound, more so because we are a people who don't, in general, follow those instructions, even the simplest or most common-sense ones. And then there are signs that are even more perplexing like this one in the Archeological Museum at Dholavira situated at the entrance to the ancient archeological site. Wonder why one would find it necessary to come to a museum armed? This museum holds many artefacts like clay dolls depicting animals, glass beads (including a 1mm one with a hole to pass a string), pottery 'sherds', seals, arrow heads, weight measures and other objects of Harrapan vintage. The museum is like many others in India, holding important collections but it is all marred by the most unimaginative displays. #Gujarat #India #Dholavira #IndianMuseums #Signs #CrisscrossingGujarat

#музейпопятницам

Древнейшее общежитие буддийских монахов, высекавшиеся в скалах в течение нескольких столетий.
Пещеры Аджанта, памятники культуры Золотого века Индии, созданные со II века по V век н. э.

Всего пещер 29. Они расположены в виде подковы. Были забыты почти на 700 лет, поэтому дошли до нас почти в первозданном виде.
Храмовый комплекс был случайно обнаружен британскими офицерами, отправившимися от скуки на охоту на тигров в индийские джунгли в 1819 г.
После того, как англичане поняли, что ими было открыто великое искусство индийских мастеров, они отправили на место капитана Роберта Гилла.

Художник Роберт Гилл, начиная с 1844 года, копировал фрески Аджанты. Как только он сделал первый шаг в 1-ую пещеру, красота фресок и этого места в целом его полностью поглотила. Жизнь персонажей даже повлияла на его собственную и он женился на индианке. Он не мог ни на минуту оставить пышногрудых красавиц с роскошными цветами.
После 20 лет упорной работы он отправляет свои работы в Лондон на выставку, которые... сгорают!!!

Гилл вновь берется за работу, но судьба отвела ему всего лишь 5 лет. Его дело продолжают другие художники еще 5 лет.
Готовые копии опять отправляют в Лондон, где они хранятся в отдельном крыле музея Альберта и Виктории. И опять они сгорают, причем только они, остальные экспонаты целы.
После таких совпадений хочется побывать в этом месте, увидеть эти фрески, этот мир, где звучали молитвы за 3 века до рождения Христа.

To write about Indian handicrafts is almost like writing about the country itself. So vast, complex, colourful, and yet with a simplicity and charm, difficult to attain under comparable conditions," says M.N. Upadhyay in his book Handicrafts of India. Imagine then the beauty of a place filled with such crafts. Well, such places exist and are waiting for you to explore them! Here are five museums across the country known for their exquisite craft collections. To know more, click on the link in bio.

In the build up to my next #Buddhismin5objects post, I'm sharing an image of one of my favourite ladies. What could she possibly have to do with the Buddha? Especially with his image? More soon:)

For today's #museumweek spotlight on #travel, my pick is the famous Didarganj Yakshi. Full bodied and sensual, crafted from polished chunar sandstone, she symbolised fertility and plenty. Dated widely to the Mauryan period, the Yakshi was discovered buried near the banks of the #Ganga in 1917, just around the time the #Patna Museum was being planned. It would be fun to believe the version of the story that says she was used by local dhobis for years as the slab to beat their washing on. 30 odd years later, in the summer of 1947 and the lead up to #Independence, the Yakshi was one of a select few large sculptural pieces that travelled to #London for a landmark #exhibition of a new, national Indian art at the Royal Academy. One of the first works of art from India seen by a British and international public, she became, and has since remained, quite the star. Look at her, she's gorgeous. Old. With so much hidden meaning and significance. From London, she travelled to #NewDelhi and then back to the #PatnaMuseum. She was recently moved again, into the shiny, new #Bihar Museum, close by. I have yet to meet her in person, so this image is from Pinterest. #travelsMW #travelMW #WomenMW #ilovemuseums #indianmuseums

Such a great programme idea @csmvsmumbai! To all those college students on my list and reading this - do NOT miss. I can't tell you how much I wish we had opportunities like this back in college in the early 2000s. Make the most of it - because somebody else definitely will. .

Over the last 10 years I've worked with so so many fantastic #women in #museums and I was wondering which image could encapsulate all of that for the last day of #MuseumWeek2017, with its spotlight on #heritage and the women that work to preserve and share the wealth of the past. I decided to go much further back, to where my journey in museums, art and heritage began. In 2004, the #AsiaticSociety and former #TownHall turned 200 and to celebrate, a group of amazing, inspiring and resilient women professors trained some 30 odd undergrads from different city colleges to lead #heritagewalks through #Mumbai's #historic #fort precinct and the Asiatic Society building and basement. We did this every weekend for a year. Back when heritage walks in Mumbai were on no one's agenda or calendar. When accessible resources on #Mumbai #history were minimal compared to today. Much of my interest, passion and inspiration came directly from them and this one project. Here they are with all of us at the launch. #heritageMW #womenMW #ilovemuseums #throwback #Bombay #histories #heritagelearning #womeninmuseums #womenteachers #teachinghistory #wonderwomen #mumbaimuseums #indianmuseums @sridharkgita

It is day 6 #MuseumWeek dedicated to stories of women and travel. Today we would like to share the story of one of India’s first woman pilots, Jodhpur Princess Rajendra Kanwar (b. 1930). Rajendra Kanwar, also known as Susan Baijilal, was an avid aviator who started flying at the age of 17 on L5 Sentinel air crafts owned by the Jodhpur Flying Club established by her father, Maharaja Umaid Singh. Her personal aircraft was a Beech Bonanza VT-CZU. Peter Vacher in his history of the Jodhpur Flying Club recounts that “the princess went solo after just five hours and earned her license in fifteen.” She is seen here as a newly-wed with her husband Maharaja Fateh Singhrao Gaekwad of Baroda (a.k.a Jackie) whom she married in 1950, becoming the queen of Baroda under the title Maharani Padmavatiraje Gaekwad. ©Mehrangarh Museum Trust

We are nearing the end of the MuseumWeek celebrating women and culture and since it is also #fashionfriday, we decided to bring you a bit of women’s fashion from Rajasthan.
Fashion is an age-old phenomenon and archival records and objects in Mehrangarh Museum’s collection show that women in 18th and 19th century Jodhpur were as picky with their clothes as most of you are. Royal women were discerning consumers who sourced their clothes from all over India whether it was expensive silk from Gujarat in the west or brocade from Varanasi in eastern India.

Seen here are two 'ghagharas'– ankle length flared skirts which were worn by Rajasthani women in palaces and villages alike. These ghagharas from our collection date to the late 19th century, and are made from fine cotton embellished with gold thread. The material for these skirts came from Gwalior in central India. Ghagharas are known for their enormous flare, sometimes clocking a hem circumference of up to 100 meters! They were paired with a single blouse or a two-piece blouse ensemble (Kurti-Kanchali) and a veil (Odhani). #fashionMW #WomenMW  #storiesMW #mehrangarh  #jodhpur#museum #UNESCO  #Indianmuseum #textiles  #Indiantextiles#indianmuseums #fashion #handmade

Our museum of the week, the Museum of Goa, or MOG, which means love in Konkani, has been founded by the artist Subodh Kerkar. The museum, centrally located in Pilerne Industrial Estate, Bardez, offers 1,500 square meters of space to display art as well as to bring together artists, curators, collectors, art enthusiasts, educators, students and audiences from all walks of life. Click the link in the bio for more.

Today is the fifth day of @museumweek and theme is #stories. To ease your Thursday blues, we would like to tell the story of this charming flying princess from a Jodhpur painting.
She is Padmini, a Srilankan Princess whose tale is told in an illustrated copy of the Suraj Prakash, an 18th century geneaology of Jodhpur’s Rathore rulers. Padmini was put under a spell by a saint at the request of the King of Bugalana who wanted to marry her. Here she is seen flying to Bugalana following the saint. But on the way Padmini sees King Padma, the ruler of Orissa and an ancestor of the Rathores, frolicking in a lake. Padmini instantly falls in love with the handsome king. To get his attention, she drops her anklet from the sky. Padma too, falls in love with Padmini and finally wins her hand by defeating the King of Bugalana in a battle.

Today is World Music Day and this upload for Museum week is themed #musicMW. There is thus no better time to celebrate the life of legendary Rajasthani folk musician Rukmabai—the first female manganiyar to perform in public.

Manganiyars are a community of professional musicians and genealogists from Rajasthan who perform for and preserve the histories of their patron families. They call themselves ‘mirasis’ or ‘keepers of stories’. Though both men and women of the community are musicians, the system of ‘purdah’ or veil prevented manganiyar women from performing for anyone except the women of their patron families. It is in defiance of these taboos that Rukmabai began her life as a professional singer. At the time she was a disabled (she lost both her legs to polio at one) single mother with no income and three children to look after.  She braved backlash from her community and under the guidance of renowned ethnomusicologist Komal Kothari, went on to perform all over the world, even recording at the BBC in London. Her music appears in a 2001 album called Mann ke Manjeeré: An Album of Women's Dreams.

Rukma Bai passed away on July 21, 2011. Learn more about her extraordinary story through these documentaries:

Today is day two of museum week and the theme is sports. So we wanted to introduce you to some sportswomen from history with this 1827 Jodhpur painting of royal women playing polo with a Maharaja.
Contrary to popular images of Indian royal women as passive creatures living a secluded life in the zenana (the women’s quarters of a palace), paintings and other records indicate that women actively participated in sports such as hunting and polo in addition to being able administrators and patrons.

Seen here are the queens or concubines of Maharaja Man Singh of Jodhpur. They ride majestic Marwari horses, identifiable for their distinctive upturned ears. As is the case with most Indian miniature paintings, the female figures here are idealized depictions, and are not identified in the inscription.

Will put up a clearer pic soon, but if you're flying Jet Airways this month, turn their magazine's pages for a piece on Mumbai's lovely Bhau Daji Lad Museum 📝📷_

Glass negative image of the Museum when it was completed in 1872. The foundation stone of the museum building was laid on this day in 1862. Sir Bartle Frere, the Governor of the erstwhile Bombay Presidency laid the foundation stone in the presence of the Museum Committee and prominent citizens of Mumbai.
The façade of the Museum was built in elegant Palladian style architecture. The Museum was originally known as the Victoria and Albert Museum and renamed in 1975 as the Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum to honour the Dr Lad, the Secretary of the Museum Committee who played a key role in securing funds for the Museum from the citizens of the Bombay Presidency.
The clock tower on the left hand was donated by Sir David Sassoon, a prominent Jewish merchant and philanthropist.

On this day, 19th November 1862, the chief corner stone of the Museum building was laid down at its present site by Sir Henry Bartle Frere, the then Governor of Bombay. Prominent citizens of the Bombay Presidency were in attendance at the Museum's site in Byculla. The Museum was formerly known as the Victoria & Albert Museum and its collection, originally housed in the Mess Rooms of the Old Town Barracks, was first opened in 1857. This collection was transferred to the present museum building which was formally opened to the public in 1872.
The Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum is the oldest museum in Mumbai and the third oldest in the country. Visit www.bdlmuseum.org to read more about the Museum.
