On occasion of the Italian Language Week Celebrations 2017, the Embassy of Switzerland in India, the Bikaner House New Delhi and the Blind Relief Association New Delhi present 'Music in the Dark' with Sandro Schneebeli & Max Pizio. Duration: 60 min.
This exhibition is a tribute to the Swiss artist’s Alice Boner (1889 - 1981) promotion of cultural knowledge and understanding between the East and the West. Her encounter with Uday Shankar, and her commitment for his dance troupe gave her life the crucial twist. She settled in Varanasi and contributed significantly to the worldwide sensitization and understanding of India’s art history. In 1974, she received the Padma Bhushan from the President of India, Shri V. V. Giri, for her outstanding contributions.
On the occasion of the State Visit of the President of the Swiss Confederation H.E. Mrs. Doris Leuthard in India, the Embassy of Switzerland officially launches the “70 Years of Swiss-Indian Friendship” initiative with a Friendship Reception. At the Swiss residence President Leuthard honors five Swiss-Indian Friendship Ambassadors for contributing innovative ideas in their fields, and for strengthening the Swiss-Indian relationship. The Friendship Reception marks the beginning of a series of events to commemorate the Swiss-Indian Friendship Treaty signed on August 14, 1948.
