Incredible India @ 60 Singapore | Photo Exhibition

Incredible India @ 60 Singapore was a celebration to commemorate the 60th anniversary of India’s Independence in 2008 which was held in Singapore. The event was an extraordinary cultural diversity outreach from India to Singapore with the best of Indian performers and artists, literally air-flown into Singapore during the Incredible India @ 60 in Singapore. Gracing the Incredible India @ 60 in Singapore were India’s Minister of Tourism and Culture, Mrs Ambika Soni, and Singapore’s Information, Communications and the Arts Minister, Dr Lee Boon Yang.

As a wildlife photographer, I was honoured to represent myself as a local artist to exhibit my journeys to India to explore its rich, colourful culture, beautiful landscapes and incredible wildlife. The photography print exhibition was held at Plaza Singapore Atrium, from April 5 to 7, 2008.

Incredible India @ 60 in Singapore

Looking back, I visited India many times since 2004. I first visited the state of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in southern India for Bandipur and Nagahole National Park and Anamalai . Then to Kanha National Park (the Kipling Country), Banharvgarh National Park and Kajuraho in the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India. In Rajasthan, I went to Ranthambore National Park and Keoladeo Ghana National Park (Bharatpur). While in Gujarat I visited Little and Greater Rann of Kutch in Thar Desert. Incredible India @ 60 in Singapore was one of my most celebrated events.

From my camera point of view, India offers a life time opportunity to capture incredible images. The country is not only teaming with wildlife but rich and colourful cultural heritage. Come face to face with wild Royal Bengal tiger in the jungle or walk through time into the cultural heritage site that is more than two thousand year old. India never fails to amaze me with wonderful photo opportunities and very warm hospitality.
