What to do on a ruthlessly hot weekend summer afternoon as a couple? Malls get too boring after a time (how much window shopping can one do and how much people can one watch!) and there are not many nice movies of our choice (maybe we are getting jaded and old style couple). Well, I got the brainwave last week to visit National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi, India) and when I asked the husband, he was quite open to it (he appreciates art since he never could get much headway in it as a school kid!). So on a hot summer Sunday (temperature at exactly 45 degrees celcius), we visited the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi (India) and it was a lovely time spent experiencing Art.
National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), New Delhi, India is a premier institution of its kind in India. It is run and administered as a subordinate office to the Department of Culture, Government of India and has two branches one at Mumbai and the other at Bangaluru. As the gallery website rightly describes “The gallery is a repository of the cultural ethos of the country and showcases the changing art forms through the passage of the last hundred and fifty years starting from about 1857 in the field of Visual and Plastic arts. The NGMA collection today is undeniably the most significant collection of modern and contemporary art in the country today.”
