It’s a great feeling to invite you all to the Invite to Thar Journal – A Photo Exhibit at Bangalore.

Few of you know about our visit to Rajasthan last month. This exhibit is all about showing what we saw, what we shot and what made us laugh etc.

We had no plans of exhibition, when we left to Jaipur from Bangalore on 6th August 2008. But, on our way to Jaipur from Bikaner, on 15th August, just thought of writing this Journal and YES, it was conceived in the 6 hours journey time. You wont believe, the THAR JOURNAL name was decided ON SPOT. The budgets, the sponsors, the venue, dates all were discussed in one shot.

We have decided to go with the WORLD TOURISM DAY for the exhibit (27th September 2008) and thought of fetching sponsorship from some tourism department. And, zeroed in the venue, BVB, as we had space availability for that weekend.

Arul, Lakshmanaraja, Surendar and I (peevee), would love to HOST you all at the Venue and would really appreciate, to see you all on all 3 days.

Here is the personal invite…

1857 is a very important year in the History of Indian Independence. You may ask me, why I’m going back to the Indian History, that too 150 years back. Thanks to Photographic Society of Madras, which just made me think of year 1857, by organising an All India Photography Salon, celebrating 150 years of their existence in India.

In turn, i got an opportunity to think, google, ctrl+c ctrl+v, content, news, events, deaths and births of 1857.

Here goes my list of 10 interesting/important things happened in 1857.
1.Indian rebellion of 1857: Indian combatants capture Delhi from the East India Company.
1a. Photography Society of Madras founded.
2.University of Bombay/Calcutta, Madras and San Jose established.
3.The National Deaf Mute College (later renamed Gallaudet University) is established in Washington, DC, becoming the first school for the advanced education of the deaf.
4.Queen Victoria chooses Ottawa, Ontario as the capital of Canada
5.Founding of Hollywood
6.Earthquake in Tokyo, Japan kills over 100,000.
7.1st perforated US postage stamps delivered to US govt
8.Typesetting machine patent
9.The world’s first commercial passenger elevator (Elisha Otis) is installed in the five-story New York china-and-glass emporium at 488 Broadway, northeast corner Broome Street.
10.The excavation of the tunnels for the London Underground railroad (subway) starts, using a method of iron casings.

Hope you will find it interesting too.
