The Authentic Cultural Exchange Between India And Nepal Now

People have been able to travel across borders freely for a very long time. Nepal and five Indian states—West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand—share a border spanning more than 1850 kilometres. In compliance with the stipulations of the treaty, citizens of Nepal have access to the same amenities and opportunities as citizens of India. India is home to almost 8 million Nepalese nationals who work there.

The development aid provided by the Indian government to Nepal is a comprehensive initiative that focuses on building infrastructure at the local level. A number of projects in the fields of infrastructure, health, water resources, education, and rural and community development have been carried out under this programme. India has been supporting Nepal in the last few years with the construction of cross-border rail links at Jogbani-Biratnagar and Jaynagar-Bardibas, the upgrading of ten roads in the Terai region, and the creation of integrated check posts at Birgunj, Biratnagar, Bhairahawa, and Nepalgunj. The entire amount of financial support allocated for “Aid to Nepal” in the 2019–20 fiscal year was INR 1200 crore.

The Government of India (GoI) organises conferences and seminars in Hindi in addition to cultural programmes, symposia, and events in collaboration with various local entities in Nepal to foster people-to-people relations in the domains of art and culture, academia, and media. It is also possible to organise short-term training in India for Nepalese journalists, editors, experts, and officials in the fields of print and electronic media, archaeology, and familiarisation trips for these professionals. A number of India-Nepal Friendship Organisations that support bilateral ties between the two countries as well as Indian culture are also given assistance. In Nepal, India is setting up an electronic library system.
The subjects of the artwork on exhibit include women’s liberation, Indian history, the beauty of nature, and Hindu gods and goddesses.

In Nepal’s Lalitpur district, a five-day international art exhibition was opened on Sunday with the goal of promoting visual art and cultural exchange between India and Nepal, according to a senior official.

The Classic Gallery of Nepal is working with the Varnabhinay Art Gallery in Lucknow, India, to organise the “Tangible Intangible” art show. The exhibition features the works of 32 artists; 22 of them are from India and 5 each from Nepal and Sri Lanka. The exhibition’s organiser, Mohmad M. Mansoori, curator and president of Varnabhinay Art Gallery, stated that the goal is to promote visual art and cultural exchange between India and Nepal.

The subjects of the artwork on exhibit include women’s liberation, Indian history, the beauty of nature, and Hindu gods and goddesses. Print media, acrylic, and mixed media are used to create the artworks.

There were four Indian performers in person for the event. Sarita Dangol, a renowned artist from Nepal and the chairman of Classic Gallery, stated, “The main objective of the exhibition is to provide a platform for the South Asian artists to show their artistic talent, cultural exchange, and opportunity to learn from each other.”
