Illuminating India is a season of exhibitions and events that celebrates India’s contribution to science, technology and mathematics.

At its heart are two major exhibitions: 5000 Years of Science and Innovation and Photography 1857–2017. Respectively they present a kaleidoscopic history of scientific breakthroughs in India and a unique photographic survey of the country's technological and cultural development that begins at start of photography.

The varied event season spotlights the diverse scientific and cultural fabric of India and includes film screenings, music and dance performances, conversations with experts and much more.

The exhibition commemorates 70 years of Independence and is part of the British Council’s UK/India Year of Culture.
