Our school, Delhi Public School North Kolkata, organised a visit to the Indian museum. It was a Patel house programme for class VI. We started our journey at 9.00 am and reached to the spot at 11.00 am. First we entered the painting section. We saw many paintings of the Mughal period. After seeing the paintings we have understood their culture. After that we had entered the sculpture section. We saw many sculptures like Lord Buddha. We also saw the sculpture of “Preaching Buddha” and gathered much information about that particular period. After that we entered the “Coins” section. We saw the coins of Chandra Gupta II, Akbar, Jahangir and many other rulers of that period. At last we entered the Egyptian pyramid section, we saw pyramid, pots and many more things.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Whatever we have read in books, were seen and felt in reality at the museum. We comprehended the whole of the Ancient and Medieval periods through the art, painting and sculpture of the periods.
