“The recently opened Zayed-Gandhi digital museum at the Manarat Al Saadiyat that showcases the teachings and life of the two great leaders is an example of the cultural cooperation that is part of the ties shared by the two countries,” she added.

She said India will have the biggest pavilion at the book fair.  Apart from the eminent authors in both English and other regional languages, the pavilion will also host cultural shows, poetry sessions and workshops. (IANS)
