The exhibition titled “Picture Postcards for Gandhi” to celebrate Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary and highlight his contribution towards environment was on at the M F Hussain Art Gallery of Jamia Millia Islamia till Wednesday.

It is an attempt to connect with young minds, instilling a spirit of patriotism, a love for the country and revisiting Gandhi, exploring his key messages, Khan said.

The exhibition was inaugurated by Jamia Millia Islamia Registrar A P Siddiqui.

“These picture postcards carry messages from young people for Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary, notes of gratitude with text the size of two SMSs, but with pictures which speak a thousand words,” Khan said. PTI ZMN RB
