New Delhi — His Holiness the Dalai Lama viewed a photo collection entitled 'Thank You Dalai Lama' on display at the All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society in Delhi, on Sunday, April 10th,.

The collection is the work of Vijay Kranti, photographer, journalist and friend of Tibetans for over 40 years. Kranti greeted His Holiness and described the exhibition as, "an Indian photographer's artistic tribute to the success story of a peaceful and brave refugee community, its monk leader the Dalai Lama and their magnanimous hosts — the people and Government of India."

Accompanying His Holiness in viewing the exhibition was BJP General Secretary Ram Lal and columnist and BJP Rajya Sabha Member Balbir Punj. Together they were escorted around the exhibition, where His Holiness took interest in many photographs, noting how much younger some of the people in them looked.
