Remote, Yet Close India

HE Mr Ajai Malhotra, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of India to Russia

On October 28 in the trading house Biblio-Globus a public function “Remote, Yet Close India” was held. India was always a country of mystery and dream. Books, films, guide-books and albums dedicated to this country are always very popular among shop’s visitors.

The event started with the greeting speech by HE Mr Ajai Malhotra, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of India to Russia. Mr Malhotra told about cultural traditions of his country and about a special respect and veneration of the Roerichs family in India. Mr Malhotra, who had repeatedly visited the Museum named after Nicholas Roerich in Moscow, advised all the participants of the event to follow his example and to visit this Museum.

Ms Helena Sorokina, manager of Biblio-Globus Travel Agency, and Ms Natalia Chekurova, author of the first Russian edition of the “Enciclopedia – Guide-book on India”, told about their travels to this country.

Ms Irina Kotenko and Ms Ekaterina Stolbova informed that the International Centre of the Roerichs issued more than 200 books and albums. These publications that included scientific works and epistolary and philosophical heritage of the Roerichs family give us opportunity to learn more about their life and creativity.
