Without this collision, life could have continued for eternity undisturbed on the Indian island, but it was neither the destiny of Tibet to remain a sea forever, nor the fate of India to be perpetually an island. This exhibition, using rare photos and illustrations, guide the reader through centuries of profound bonds between two ancient civilizations whose destinies have been, and still are, closely intermingled. Cultural, religious and economic links were abruptly discontinued in 1962, but one can hope that it is only a temporary phase and the ancient links will flourish again.
