Uzbekistan Today (English) - - TODAY IN UZBEKISTAN -

The pre­sen­ta­tion of the 10-vol­ume “Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in World Col­lec­tions” has taken place in the Lal Ba­hadur Shas­tri memo­rial com­plex in Delhi. The event was in light of the forth­com­ing state visit of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to In­dia.

In Uzbek­istan, the name of the sec­ond Prime Min­is­ter of in­de­pen­dent In­dia is re­mem­bered well and with deep re­spect. Not only are the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the se­nior gen­er­a­tion, but also the young peo­ple proud that the his­toric 1966 dec­la­ra­tion be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan was signed in Tashkent.

In ad­di­tion, a bust of Lal Ba­hadur Shas­tri is in­stalled in our cap­i­tal city, and one of the streets here is named af­ter the great statesman of the In­dian peo­ple.

The former Prime Min­is­ter’s son Anil Shas­tri is cur­rently run­ning the In­dia-Uzbek­istan Friend­ship So­ci­ety. It com­prises renowned politi­cians, pub­lic fig­ures, sci­en­tists, jour­nal­ists, and it makes a wor­thy con­tri­bu­tion to fur­ther­ing the friendly re­la­tions be­tween the Uzbek and In­dian peo­ples.

Chair­man of the In­di­aUzbek­istan Friend­ship So­ci­ety Anil Shas­tri, Am­bas­sador Ex­tra­or­di­nary and Plenipo­ten­tiary of Uzbek­istan to In­dia Farhod Arziyev and oth­ers noted at the pre­sen­ta­tion that the forth­com­ing first state visit of Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to In­dia is ex­pected with great in­ter­est in two coun­tries. The par­tic­i­pants of the event ex­pressed con­fi­dence that the re­sults of the meet­ings and ne­go­ti­a­tions within the frame­work of the visit will open up new prospects for the ad­vance­ment of mu­tu­ally ad­van­ta­geous co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two ma­jor states of Cen­tral and South Asia.

A series of books “Cul­tural Her­itage of Uzbek­istan in the World Col­lec­tions” is pub­lished in the frame­work of the epony­mous project, with no par­al­lels in the world. It en­vis­ages the col­lec­tion, study and pub­li­ca­tion of cul­tural ob­jects orig­i­nat­ing from the ter­ri­tory of Uzbek­istan, but due to var­i­ous rea­sons ex­ported to this or that coun­try of the world. The pub­lished books tell about the sam­ples of the rich and unique spir­i­tual and cul­tural her­itage of our peo­ple, stored in fa­mous and pop­u­lar mu­se­ums around the globe.

Mem­bers of the ini­tia­tive group of the project to­gether with cel­e­brated Uzbek and In­dian sci­en­tists be­gan to study sam­ples of the rich­est cul­tural le­gacy of our peo­ple in mu­se­ums, li­braries and other trea­sures of In­dia. The out­comes of schol­arly re­search will be in­cluded in new vol­umes of the series.

Books are also to be pre­sented at Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity, Jamia Mil­lia Univer­sity, Jama Masjid Delhi and the Cen­ter for Is­lamic Cul­ture of In­dia. An ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled “In­dia-Uzbek­istan: Di­a­logue of Cul­tures” opened on Septem­ber 25 at the Na­tional Mu­seum of In­dia, and it is to last through to Oc­to­ber 24.
