Delhi is getting ready to host the G20 Leaders’ Summit. A media center has been set up in the Bharat Mandapam complex, where all the domestic and international media delegates will gather to cover the summit. The media center can accommodate over 3,000 media delegates and has various facilities such as broadband connectivity, media lounges, and interview booths. The G20 meetings will be broadcasted in ultra high definition (UHD) and 4K technologies, a first for India. The media center also features exhibitions showcasing India’s digital economy, culture, handicrafts, and artifacts.
One of the exhibitions will display Telia Rumal from Telangana, which is a traditional cloth treated with sesame or castor oil to repel water. This cloth is commonly used by local fishermen. Another exhibit will showcase Kalamkari from Andhra Pradesh, a form of art that involves painting or printing on cloth using vegetable dyes.
