Online Discussion with Ganesh Shivaswamy on Museums - Past Present and (is there a) Future..


There was a special focus on the Raja Ravi Varma Collection..


In a freewheeling conversation with Priya Chetty-Rajagopal about museums on International Museum Day, lawyer, author & historian Ganesh Shivaswamy, holds forth on democratization and digitisation of the museum experience, the iconic artist Raja Ravi Varma, the inspiration for the six volume book he authored, the Google Arts & Culture experience, the surprising impact of Ravi Varma's art on changing laws, ending with the moot issue of repatriation of art. Interesting side chats on what a lawyers like him is doing in the world of arts, a poignant vignette on how he entered this space via his neurosurgeon Dr Ravi Verma himself, the future that museums need to hold tight and connect to, how kids need to to relate to a museum.. and the tragic loss of good copperplate handwriting :-)

Reminder re the National Military Memorial Museum own Raj Bhavan Road


Considering it was Museum Day, it was especially appropriate to send this reminder. So a letter was written to CM to mindfully launch the tragically overdue National Military Museum at the NMM site. it has been over 12 years.. 10000 square feet and it lies there forgotten, incompete, even rusting .. What an insult our martyrs...



 


All in all, an eventful day and a promise made to keep this important edifice front and center in our desire to connect with heritage ..


What are your suggestions for next year?

What shall we do? Who shall we focus on?

How can we innovate?
