Heritage Talk at Lonpo House (2010-11)

Heritage Talk

The Himalayan Cultural Heritage Foundation (HCHF) restarted its daily activities after the misfortune caused by the flash flood in Ladakh with a successful PowerPoint presentation on Buddhist Monastic Festival in Ladakh by Dr Georgias T. Halkais, a British Academy Research Fellow from the University of London and member of International Association for Ladakh Studies (IALS). The talk, held on the 18th August, was attended by foreign research students, tourists, Ladakhi students, cultural guides and members from other NGOs. It was heartening to witness that the participants could forget all kind of street talks about what had happened in Leh once they were in the lecture hall and concentrated their mind on the motivating and fruitful academic talk by Dr Georgias T. Halkais. Heritage talks and exhibitions are being organized in Lonpo House from time to time.
