Celebrating the Emperor's birthday

 29th November 2017

On the occasion of the celebration of the birthday of the Empereor of Japan, the Consulate in Chennai organised a reception and requested sensei Malathi Pandurang, the Chairperson of the Sogetsu Study Group, and Ms Cherry Venkatesan, sensei of the Ohara school to create  Ikebana compositions to welcome the guests.

While Mrs Pandurang chose a traditional Indian cooking container, urali, Mrs Venkatesan chose a large suiban for her composition.

The two contrasting arrangements formed a colourful feast for the eyes.
