New Delhi – The American Center has launched an exhibition: “Celebrating 70 Years of U.S.-India Relations, featuring images and photographs from the U.S. Embassy archives that document the U.S.-Indian relationship as far back as the 1950s.
The show is broken into themes that mirror the depth and breadth of the two countries’ collaboration, ranging from security and economic partnerships to the sharing of talents and culture across such areas as science and technology innovation and performing arts creations, A US Embassy release said here.
“All around us, you will see inspiring images from past and present that reflect the strategic partnership and strong friendship that the United States and India have enjoyed for 70 years now,” said Sarah Ziebell, the U.S. Embassy’s Regional Public Engagement Specialist, during the opening of the exhibit.
“Building this exhibition was both a labor of love and a joy for the team that assembled it, and we are proud of its reflection of U.S.-India dosti,” she said.

The launch that took place yesterday at the American Centre here, also featured a dance performance, “Dancing Stories from the East and West,” by Nyama McCarthy-Brown, Assistant Professor of Contemporary Dance at Indiana University, and Tanya Saxena, a Bharatanatyam dancer.

As American dancer Nyama McCarthy-Brown put it, “The collaboration illuminated treasured dance traditions from two very distinct cultures and wove them together harmoniously, yet without infringing upon the integrity of either form. To be sure, each form was magnified in the presentation, juxtaposed to the other. The work was a collaboration, in every sense, a true partnership of embodied culture.”(IANS)
