KOLKATA: Showcasing the massive impact of Indian cinema and the country?s digital prowess, an exhibition on films is travelling to Indonesia and Malaysia. Kolkata-based National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), an autonomous body under the Union Ministry of Culture, while celebrating ?Festival of India? is likely to narrate the fascinating story of a modern and culturally diverse India.

Inaugurated in Jakarta last week, the exhibition will travel to various cities of Malaysia such as Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Malacca till June.

The other exhibition ?The Rise of Digital India? showcases the phenomenal rise of digital technologies in India after independence and how it has touched the lives of millions of Indians in areas such as agriculture, power generation, weather forecasting, e-commerce, atomic energy, space, communication, e-governance etc.

NCSM Director General G S Rautela said it is an opportunity to showcase modern India and diversity of Indian culture abroad. ?The Festivals of India abroad not only give wonderful opportunities for the Indian Diaspora to rejuvenate their cultural connections but also pave way for strong cultural bonding and improve people to people contact between the countries,? he said.

The travelling exhibition ?Life on the Silver Screen: The Fascinating Story of Indian Cinema? is a portrayal of the impact of the Indian cinema on the society, its culture, economy and vice-versa.

It takes visitors through an absorbing journey of a century of Indian cinema in a storytelling mode with the help of visuals and graphics, film clippings, artifacts/replica, interactive multimedia, etc.

The exhibitions are aimed to develop a strong cultural bonding between India, Indonesia and Malaysia, NSCM officials said.
