The Embassy of India in Ljubljana is delighted to present an online event during which Benoy K. Behl from India Habitat Centre will hold a talk followed by film screening ‘Poetry of the Hills’, at 1330 hrs (Central European Time) or 1800 hrs (Indian Standard Time) on Saturday, 18 February 2023.

The exquisite miniature paintings of Kangra are perhaps among the finest ever made by man. These paintings bring to us the gentlest and most tender thoughts. They enshrine a deep love for all of creation, in a manner which is intensely personal and deeply devoted. The world of Kangra paintings is one of tenderness and love. It is the spirit of Bhakti, the ecstatic joy of adoration, the supreme joy of the giving of oneself in the love of the divine which pervades the entire world of these paintings. The scenes of Krishna’s childhood exploits are particularly endearing and evoke the tender sentiments of the worshippers. We have beautiful paintings on the exquisite theme of Baby Krishna: the Lord as a mischievous child, with his playful antics, giving no end of trouble to his mother.
