Mexico important partner for India, says envoy

Mexico City, June 20 (IANS) India and Mexico, though far apart geographically, share striking cultural similarities and the country is a very important partner for India, said the Indian envoy.

Mexico City, June 20 — India and Mexico, though far apart geographically, share striking cultural similarities and the country is a very important partner for India, said the Indian envoy.

Ambassador Sujan R. Chinoy, inaugurating an exhibition of medieval Indian paintings in Mexico City, said that though India and Mexico were virtually antipodes, paradoxically there were striking similarities between the two.

He gave the example of Mayan God Hun-Ahan, (the howler monkey), which corresponds to Hanuman, much revered in Hinduism, and Quetzalcoatl (the feathered serpent god) of the ancient Meso-American cultures which corresponds to Nagaraja in Hinduism, said a statement Thursday.

Chinoy said that Mexico was a country in ascendance in the Latin American region and was a very important partner for India, given so much in common.

The Indian envoy and Rafael Tovar y de Teresa, president of Conaculta of Mexico or the National Council for Culture and Arts, inaugurated the exhibition of 104 Indian paintings titled Visions of India, sourced from the Museum of Art of San Diego, at the prestigious Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City earlier this week.

Teresa said the exhibition had brought India into Mexico and had re-connected the two ancient cultures.

He said that India, like Mexico, was home to splendid legacies in its region and that the two countries had had contacts throughout history.

He referred to Nobel laureate Octavio Paz who helped Mexicans understand the spirituality and mysticism of India through his research and works, the statement said.
