04/09/2020 – The Chairman presents … images from the Indian states of Goa and Gujurat
Our Chairman Ramesh will share some of his images from Mumbai and Goa, and talk about ancestral homes and the problems they now face in Goa.
Delhi is rich in Mughal culture and fine examples are seen at Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar and the Lodhi Gardens.
In Gujarat Ramesh visited a 250 yr old British Armenian and Dutch Cemetery with old tombs. Sadly no one seems to look after the Cemetery. The images will be shown as taken – in colour – but also after conversion to monochrome. You’ll have a chance to tell Ramesh which you prefer.
