MUSEUM WALKS IN RUN UP TO INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY
Well-known heritage activist and founder of Delhi Heritage Photography Club and Youth For Heritage Foundation Vikramjit Singh Rooprai joined forces with TCBG to generate awareness about museums. Starting from May 10 and leading up to International Museum Day (May 18), we visited, explored, documented and above all, created interest about the wealth of information preserved within the air-conditioned galleries of the various museums of Delhi. Starting with Replica Museum, founded by former Regional Director (North) of Archaeological Survey of India, KK Muhammed, TCBG members also visited National Museum on Janpath to learn more about the Zoroastrian history. We also explored Gallery of Rare Musical Instruments in Delhi. This activity inspired many of our members from other parts of the country to explore museums in their own backyards.
Musical Instruments Museum – Keeper of tunes.
An encounter with Zoroastrianism, my journey in Parsi-land.
मई की उस दोपहर जनपथ पर लगी प्रदर्शनी के एक-एक सैक्शन, फ्रेम दर फ्रेम, प्रतिकृतियों (replicas) के सामने से गुजरते हुए मैं उस धर्म और उसकी स्थापनाओं से पहली बार रूबरू हो रही थी जो ईसाईयत से करीब डेढ़ हजार साल पहले और इस्लाम की जड़ों के फूटने से लगभग दो हजार वर्ष पूर्व ईरान के कबीलाई समाज का प्रमुख धर्म था।
Tunes of the Tribes
While many of us can easily classify sounds of western musical instruments that are available in stores, can we also identify the sounds of our tribal musical instruments?
A valuable experience in culture through musical instruments
Modern lifestyle has made us busy than ever before. People today are bored with this robotic mundane life where the word ‘experience’ has no or little value.

2016 is the year I decided to outdo myself with a new year resolution to do 12 trips in 12 months, without quitting a full time job. TCBG is the best thing that happened to me this year, facilitating me, guiding me and sometimes even becoming a stepping stone for future travel escapades. It's the one thing I am thankful for, because this group gives me travel goals as well as helps me keep sane when I am not travelling for weeks. Talking about travel cheers me up on a low day, and TCBG has brought a smile a lot of times than I can even remember.
