His Holiness Dalai Lama's function was organised by Bihar Foundation, Mumbai on 19th Feb 2011.The Bihar Foundation contacted me for the stage designing for this function. They wanted the stage design to include Nalanda University and Lord Buddha. At first they wanted to create a 3D stage.
It was decided that the background so created would reflect that His Holiness Dalai Lama is speaking from The Nalanda University, the first and biggest university of its time. The Image of Lord Buddha in the sky symbolizes his blessings.
After the design was finalized the organizers decided on a 2D backdrop so the design was printed and used in the background.

The function was a huge success and my design was appreciated. For this I was awarded by Union Minister of Tourism Shri Subodh Kant Sahay and Bollywood singer Shri Udit Narayan.
