Defending human dignity – An exhibition at the Red Cross Museum in Geneva, Switzerland

The purpose of a museum or an exhibition is not about conveying information (which is a commodity in this information age) but invoking emotion from within, make a basis for reflection and let the visitor grasp the real significance of the situation. The whole idea is to present an experience.  I had one such memorable experience when I entered the permanent exhibition – Defending Human Dignity by Gringo Cardia, a Brazilian graphic designer and an artist  inside the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva, Switzerland.

“The Ultimate Driving Machine” – The BMW Museum in Munich, Germany!

The experience of visiting the BMW Museum in Munich, Germany was the first of its kind. Though later in my life, I got opportunities to experience the Mercedes-Benz Museum and the Geneva Motor show in Switzerland, but the first exposure to the world of luxury cars remains special.

The concentration camp in Auschwitz, Poland – A vast factory of murder!

8th May, 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the end of world war II. 70 years have passed, but the word “war” is omnipresent. Now, we have more technically advanced weapons to destroy humans and humanity! Did we progress? Before we answer this question to ourselves, let’s remember the famous quote.

Dachau Concentration Camp.

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site (Germany)

One of my biggest weaknesses is travelling. It enriches me. On one hand, the wonderful nature in Norway,  Switzerland , France and Denmark etc instills me with peace, inspiring places like Nobel Museum in Stockholm , CERN Switzerland , The Neils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and The Freud Museum in Vienna etc inspires me and on the other hand some places take away words from my pen, takes away thoughts from my mind and senses from within.

Mysterious World of Dreams – The Freud Museum in Vienna

The idiosyncrasy of dreams is mysterious yet fascinating. The rules of reality do not apply to the world of dreams. It is known yet unknown, it reflects our conscious mind yet it originates in the subconscious mind and the most interesting part to me is, it is unreal yet it shadows reality.

“The Best or Nothing” – The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany!

In my adolescence, I used to dream about a romantic date where I would be inside a Mercedes Benz car and heading towards the sea with the windows wide open and the gushing air would refresh both of us along with some rain droplets. A lovely melodious and romantic song in the car would heighten passions in the dark starlit night!! Well, whether my dream date became a reality or not, let me keep it a secret. But to my surprise, I got an opportunity to visit the Mercedes Benz Museum a few days back. I was thrilled and anxious to know more about my dream car company when I reached there. I must acknowledge that I used to know very little about Mercedes-Benz before the visit.
