Joint Director – Horticulture, GoK
Dear Dr Jagadish:
Subject: Request for information/update on Restoration of Historic Aquarium at Lalbagh
At the outset, thank you for all the wonderful work you and your Horticulture Team is doing across the state and particularly out two gems Lalbagh and Cubbon Park. We hope to have many opportunities to work with you and build connects and events that allow people to appreciate our city’s natural heritage better.
By the way, as I mentioned today, I had hoped that Mr. Suresh Jayaram, famous artist and historian can meet with you and present the newly published wonderful book he has recently completed on YOUR Lalbagh to you, Director and DD. He has presented the first copy to Mr. RK Kataria, Secretary – Horticulture just yesterday and he wanted to present the second set to you and the team.
I wanted to check with you regarding the historical but sadly dilapidated Aquarium. I am sure you are doing all you can but do please share in some detail what are the plans for this, focus to restore it and how if anything, we can help you as citizens.
We are always happy to support our magnificent Lalbagh, Cubbon Park (and the pretty adjacent Musical Fountain Park). Please let us know if there is anything that is needed.
