Meeting INTACH advisor in Kolkata

January 31, 2020

On 30 January 2020 I had an interesting meeting with mr. G. M. Kapur, advisor of the Indian National Trust for Art and Culture Heritage (INTACH) in West Bengal. This is the national agency for heritage conservation in India.

We discussed the Dutch heritage situation in Chinsurah and my forthcoming presentation for the INTACH members. He showed me a copy of the Bauke van der Pol’s book in English: The Dutch East Indian Company.

In the workspace with their collections staff was working to conserve old documents.
