Bicentenary Celebrations of Indian Museum in 2014

Three months has passed now since my involvement with the Indian Museum and I am really enjoying my new challenges.

My present job responsibilities include the duties of the Education officer and also work as a member of the Project Implementation Team for forthcoming Bicentenary Celebrations of Indian Museum in 2014. I feel that I am really lucky to have the privilege to work in Indian Museum during its forthcoming Celebrations.

I have been immensely benefited from the ITP training and trying to incorporate ideas in my present job. Thank you very much for trusting me and allowing me to join ITP-2009.  Presently I am concentrating on organizing workshops, training programmes, school children programmes, academic lectures and also cultural events for the visitors.

Museum shops and websites are two major projects which I am looking to give some meaningful shapes. I am also engaged to make ‘Friends of Indian Museum’ and the exciting news is that we are having great response in all the sectors. Academic seminars, exhibitions are in full swing. Since September 2011 we have organized quite a few exhibitions, Cultural events, workshops, training courses and also planning for the future. I am attaching few pictures for you.  Hope to meet you soon.
