The British Council is hosting an exhibition-cum-discussion titled Beyond the Frame: India in Britain (1858-1950), which will showcase the little-known but long history of the Indian presence in Britain.
The material on display highlights some of the exchanges and encounters that took place in Britain from the period of the Raj to the early years of independence across spheres of politics, arts and sports.
Mirror of British Merchandise (1893) is one of the images on display
