About the exhibition

An exhibition to celebrate and remember Premola Ghose, ex-Chief, Programme Division IIC, who passed away in 2019. The works  exhibited today, most of them done from 1996 to 2018 reflect her personality as well as her passions: her quirky, often irreverent,  sense of humour, her playful  sense of mischief and eye for the absurd;  her deep interest in history and architecture; her zest for travel both in India and abroad; her love of nature and animals. And last but by no means least, her world at the India International Centre where she worked for forty-odd years, putting her heart and soul into all that she did here. A wonderful storyteller as well, Premola authored a series of travel tales all featuring her quirky ‘Gang’ of animals and their adventures not only in India but also in Europe, Sri Lanka and Japan.
