Experiments with Truth, a fortnight-long exhibition to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Father of the Indian Nation Mahatma Gandhi got off to a good start at Building 19 of Katara Cultural Village Tuesday.
More than 75 paintings, based on the life and teachings of Gandhi and his messages relevant in the contemporary world are showcased at the exhibition. The paintings have been created by members of the Visual Artists Forum of India-Qatar (VAFI-Qatar) and students of the country's Indian schools.
At the inauguration yesterday, Indian ambassador P Kumaran and Katara general manager Khalid al-Sulaiti were present.
While thanking Katara for facilitating the venue for the exhibition, Kumaran said the event would help the Qatar residents understand the significance of Gandhi's teachings of ahimsa (non-violence) and truth strongly than ever before.
The exhibition is open until October 31. The timing is from 10am to 10pm.
