Exhibition in NYC | ‘Princes and Painters in Mughal Delhi’ at Asia Society

Exhibition in NYC | ‘Princes and Painters in Mughal Delhi’ at Asia Society | Indian Photographies | Scoop.it

"The show covers the late reign of the rich and powerful Mughals, from whom we derive the word mogul. At their height the Mughals ruled over much of the land that today comprises India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, founding the opulent city of Shahjahanabad, now Old Dehli, in 1648. The exhibition tracks their decline, which coincided with the rise of British rule in India..."

"I wanted to understand the reasons for this epidemic; Why was this happening? How was it happening? And to hear of first hand experiences from the girls. I heard many stories of poverty, bad families, deception by friends and families, kidnappings and horrific experiences on trafficking routes. Sometimes the girls had left their homes of their own will, other times they were running away from violent husbands or simply in search of a better life. The stories differed but one commonality existed: they had all been deceived". Sonal Kantaria
