Kohima, Nagaland, India: During the second world war, in 1944 in Kohima there was a fierce battle between the British and Japanese forces. The War Cemetery of Kohima remembers the British soldiers who had died in that battle. Indians were there on both the sides as part of British forces and as the Indian National Army with the Japanese.

Kohima, Nagaland, India: Sculptor Michaelangelo's "Pieta" (Compassion) is world famous. It has mother Miriam lost in pain holding the dead body of Jesus. Other "Pieta" statues inspired by this sculpture are present in many churches around the world. Some months ago I had presented few examples of those. Yesterday morning I saw Kohima's Pieta, its artist is Shaji Jospeh. This statue is behind the Cathedral of Kohima. About 9 meters high and 6 meters wide, it is supposed to be the largest Pieta in the world.

कोहिमा, नागालैंड, भारतः शिल्पकार माइकल एँजेलो की प्रतिमा "पिइता" (करुणा) जगप्रसिद्ध है. इसमें दर्द में डूबी माँ मिरियम की गोदी में मृत येसू को दिखाया गया है. उससे प्रेरित "पिइता" मूर्तियाँ दुनियाँ के कई गिरजाघरों में हैं. कुछ माह पहले मैंने इसके कुछ उदाहरण प्रस्तुत किये थे. कल सुबह कोहिमा की "पिइता" को देखा जिसे शाजी जोसफ़ ने बनाया है. यह कोहिमा के केथेड्रल के पीछे है. 29 फीट लम्बी तथा 19 फीट चौड़ी यह दुनिया की सबसी बड़ी "पिइता" मूर्ति है.

Kohima, Nagaland, India: La Pietà di Michelangelo è famosa in tutto il mondo e mostra la Madonna addolorata con il corpo di Gesu nelle braccia. Pietà ispirate da questa scultura sono presenti in diverse chiese nel mondo. Alcuni mesi ne avevo presentato alcuni esempi. Ieri mattina ho visto "La Pietà" di Kohima costruita da Shaji Joseph. Questa statua si trova dietro la cattedrale di Kohima. Circa 9 metri alta e circa 6 metri larga, si dice che sia La Pietà più grande del mondo.

Changing walls - Pareti che cambiano - बदलती दीवारें

Milan, Italy: At the World Expo 2015, there are many examples of architectural experiments, such as the changing ways in which walls can be perceived. Poster on the walls or video-walls are now common. The walls of Uruguay pavilion that had more windows and less walls was perhaps inspired from the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur. On the other hand Israel pavilion with crops growing on its walls was certainly innovative.

मिलान, इटलीः विश्व एक्स्पो 2015 में वास्तुशिल्प के नये प्रयोगों के अनेक उदाहरण हैं, जैसे दीवारों के बदलते रूप. दीवारों पर पोस्टर या वीडियों दीवारें तो अब आम हो चुकी हैं. उरुगुवाय की दीवार जिसमें दीवार कम खिड़कियाँ अधिक थीं, ने शायद जयपुर के हवामहल से प्रेरणा ली थी. लेकिन इज़राइल की पेवेलियन की दीवार जिसपर फसलें उग रहीं थीं बिल्कुल अनोखी लगी.

Mialno, Italia: Al Expo 2015, vi sono diversi esempi di esperimenti archetettonici - per esempio, come cambiano le pareti. Manifesti sulle pareti o pareti di video sono oramai comuni. Il padiglione di Uruguay aveva più finistre e meno pareti, ed era forse ispirato dal palazzo dei venti di Jaipur. Invece la parete del padigione di Israele, dove crescevano le piante era certamente innovativa.
