The “Green, Clean & Smart Museum” initiative of the Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, Pune, has been duly approved by Federal Foreign Office, Berlin, Germany, and the German Consulate General, Mumbai. The “Green, Clean & Smart Museum” project proposal, which was submitted under the “Cultural Preservation Programme” run by Federal Foreign Office in Germany, aims at achieving different goals to modernize the Museum with technological advancement essential for the changing times. The Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum located in the old centre of Pune houses an impressive collection of more than 23,000 priceless artifacts recalling the historic Indian culture and traditions. Its treasures are valuable to historians and art lovers alike. The German Consulate Mumbai considers the Museum to be one of Maharashtra`s hidden jewels that has managed to preserve the cultural heritage of Indian craftsmanship via its splendid collection of daily-life artifacts through centuries. This, along with its rich folk art, has repeatedly drawn interest also by the many visitors from Maharashtra`s partners and sister-cities in Germany. To formalize the arrangement, an Agreement has been signed between the German Consulate Mumbai and Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, Pune, represented by Consul General Dr. Juergen Morhard and Sudhanva Ranade, Director of Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, respectively.
