Sanskriti Yatra

I did not know till then that Tagore was an artist too!

This pastel colored museum train is going around the country for an year (May 2010 to May 2011) to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore.

The most attractive of the 4 coaches for me was the one dedicated to Tagore's paintings,portraits and pictures. Till then I did not know he painted and sketched, as well.

Here is a list of photographs I've taken of the display, courtesy to the exhibition.

By the way the exhibition coaches stationed on platform 3 at Ashokapuram Railwaystation ( Oct 22 to 24 2010). If you miss this, get to Bangalore, the next stop.
