Display of another kind

Prompt  ….


Shankar’s International Dolls Museum at Delhi has one of the largest collections of costume dolls anywhere in the world.

The Museum has two sections with glass cases >1000 ft. long. One section exhibits dolls from Europe, U.S.A and the Commonwealth countries; and the other from Asian and African countries.

A third section has recently been added.  It contains black, brown and white dolls in different states of disarray.  Most visitors – especially children have many queries about the exhibits here.  The section information panel states that  … these are the dolls collected from sites of violence across the globe.

  1. That is one museum I’d love to visit someday. The last exhibit… sad, but I’d like to see that, too. Not all childhood’s are perfect, but all can be remembered well.

    • Shankar’s doll museum in Delhi is a famous place and does have two sections with the largest collection of costumed dolls in world.
      However, the third section described in the last para is pure fiction.

      Thanks for the interest.

  2. I must have visited Shankar’s museum countless times as a kid but fortunately the third section is fictional. Though it would make such an impact to have one like that.

I love arguments
