A four-day cultural and archaeological exhibition titled ‘Enchanting Krishna' was inaugurated here on Monday.

Speaking after the inauguration, Prince of Arcot Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali said all religions preached tolerance and brotherhood. Indians were a peace-loving community and the Muslims in India were happy unlike their brethren in neighbouring countries, he said.

Harmonious life

His ancestors lived a harmonious life with members of other community. This was evident by their generous donation of large areas of lands for constructing more than 300 temples in southern India as well as educational institutions by Christian missionaries.

One should live to the ideals of Bhagavat Gita, which was given to the humanity by Lord Krishna, said Rev. Fr. B. Jeyaraj, S.J., Principal, Loyola College. Whatever was required for human beings had been mentioned in the Gita, he said.

T.K.V. Rajan, Editor, The Indian Science Monitor, who organised the exhibition, said several principles preached in the Gita were prescribed as a subject in modern day business management studies.

The objective of the exhibition was to correlate Harappan sites with that of Mahabharata sites in the country.

The exhibition is open between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. at Madurai Meenakshi Bhavan Hotel Complex, G.N. Chetty Road, near Vani Mahal, till Thursday.
