Seminar on Ethnographic Museums from July 28

Wednesday, 24 July 2019 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya as a part of its educational activities is organising a three-day National Seminar on ‘Ethnographic Museums in India: Contributions, Representations and Future possibilities’ from July 28 to 30, 2019 at Rock Art Conferences Hall, IGRMS.

This three-day seminar will be inaugurated on Sunday at 10 am. The scholars from various museums of the country are participating in this national seminar.

Indira Gandhi Rashtiya Manav Sangrahalaya is organising a photo exhibition ‘Island Cultures of India’ at Rock Art Heritage indoor exhibition hall.

The present Photo Exhibition explores diverse cultural ecology in the islands of Loktak Lake of Manipur.

N Sakmacha Singh, Museum Associate, IGRMS told about this exhibition.

The Loktak Lake (meaning end of the stream), pulses with life, stretching to about 500 sq. km during the rains and roughly half that in the dry months of February and March.

It is famous for the floating biomass islands or phumdis, a rich source of vegetation that have supported humans and animals for decades.

In the heart of the lake is the largest phumdi, the 40sq. km Keibul Lamjao National Park, home to the endangered brown-antlered deer, the sangai, whose habitat is under threat just as the islands are.

This is rich in biological diversity and plays an important role in the ecological and economic security of the region.

Loktak and its related wetlands constitute habitat for a vast variety of biological life forms ranging from the smallest microorganisms to larger vertebrates including humans.

The lake was recognized as a Ramsar site of international importance in 1990.
