ASEAN Journalists Visit New Town

Yesterday, a group of 17 journalists from various ASEAN countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam etc visited Eco Park, Wax Museum and Banglar Hat. The tour was organised by the Ministry of Externam Affairs, Govt of India. They spent several hours and were quite overwhelmed. Many took copious pictures and videos. They were particularly delighted with the Butterfly Garden and the-release-of-butterfly event, the glass house, the rose garden and the Mother's Wax Museum. Hidco gifted them a photo each with a wax model of their choice: many chose Mother Teresa and Gandhiji. Two pictures:
