This exhibition brings to life the tradition of botanical
illustrations by one of world's finest flower artists: Hemlata
Pradhan. Based in Kalimpong, Sikkim, Pradhan's works have been shown
at the British Museum and Kew Gardens, and appears on the stamps of
the Kingdom of Bhutan. Pradhan's new work in this exhibition
highlights the rare and fast-disappearing Indo-Himalayan orchids and
other plants in the region.

We all should be proud of this lady who has made Indians and Indian
botanists proud by her artistic abilities.
Any of our international members around Thailand should visit her
exhibition and meet this down to earth lady.
Pankaj

Here is some more information about her, who happens to be a very good
friend of mine. She is daughter of Mr. U C Pradhan, one of the
foremost Orchid grower of India and chairman of IUCN's Indian
Sub-continent Orchid Specialist Group and Species Survival Commission.
In the Orchid world we call them the Orchid Family of India, as all
members of Mr. Pradhan's family are somehow connected to Orchids.
I am glad you all liked it.
Thanks Smita, Tanay and Dinesh sir...
Regards
Pankaj

Actually the note was to invite anyone who wants to visit her show at
Thailand. She is regularly painting and taking assignments from
throughout the world, especially Kew.
Hopefully I would be able to add more to the group about her in future.
