Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O’Farrell and Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani met at the corporate headquarters in Ahmedabad to discuss issues such as bilateral and strategic partnerships between India and Australia, Adani Group’s plans for expansion of its solar power generation capacity and Australia’s support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative among others.
Both parties discussed the confluence of indigenous art and culture of both nations. The Indian and Australian artists have jointly commissioned a sculpture at Adani Group headquarters depicting subconscious connection rooted in the nature that surrounds Gonds from Madhya Pradesh and the Warlpiri people from Australia.
High Commissioner O’Farrell visited the sculpture and appreciated the artwork embodying the two cultures from distant geographies in a harmony.
“What an incredible collaboration by Indigenous Australian and Indian Gond artists, celebrating ancient links between the Australian flag and Indian flag. It was a pleasure to see this sculpture in Ahmedabad while meeting the world’s largest solar power generation owner and major investor in Flag of Australia,” O’Farrell said referring to the artwork and his meeting with Adani, on a microblogging site Twitter on Thursday.
