Embassy's 'Mandvi to Muscat' series explores History of Indian Rupee in Oman

Embassys Mandvi to Muscat series explores History of Indian Rupee in Oman

Muscat: The Embassy of India hosted the 6th session of the 'Mandvi to Muscat' lecture series, focusing on the 'History of the Indian Rupee in Oman and the Gulf Region.' Mr Swagat Pani, an anthropologist and historian, led the lecture, providing insights into the enduring presence of the Indian Rupee in Oman and the Gulf Region.

Mr. Pani's lecture delved into several key aspects, including the historical use of British India Coins and Rupees in Oman, the significance of the Maria Theresa Thaler, the role of Rupees in biographies, the Rupee's impact as a tool of emancipation and the importance of the Gulf Rupee. Using currency as a lens, he traced the historical connections between India and the Gulf region, particularly Oman, highlighting the role of Indian currencies in fostering cultural exchanges.

H.E. Amit Narang, Ambassador of India to the Sultanate of Oman, expressed gratitude to the attendees for their support and enthusiasm. Reflecting on the success of the previous lectures, Ambassador Narang underscored the series' role in deepening understanding and appreciation of the contributions of the Indian diaspora to the India-Oman relationship.

The event featured additional presentations, including one by Mr. Amit Sampat, who explored the rich history of the Naranjee Hirjee family and their journey as prominent members of the Indian diaspora in Oman. Dr. Akbar Rafay, a distinguished Indian-origin Omani citizen, shared anecdotes from the life of his late father, Dr. Syed Mohammed Rafay, who served as the personal physician to the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said and made significant contributions to the development of medical services in Oman.

Mr Sedunath Prabhakar presented the Ambassador with a painting depicting the historic meeting between Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik during the latter’s maiden State visit to India in December 2023. This painting will join the exhibition 'India-Oman: A Political Journey,' which is permanently displayed at the Embassy of India.

The 'Mandvi to Muscat' lecture series continues to serve as a platform for cultural exchange, strengthening the enduring people-to-people ties between India and Oman.
