Ambassador of India in Croatia Sandeep Kumar has posted on his official embassy Facebook page his farewell gifts given to Croatian officials, reports on November 1, 2018.

“The ambassador has presented the paintings that he himself painted, which show different topics such as parliamentary elections in Croatia, the crisis in Agrokor, the cathedral in Zagreb, the successful performance of Croatia at the recent football World Cup, paintings of Croatian landmarks, and a portrait of Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović,” announced the embassy on Facebook.

As could be expected, the portrait of the Croatian president was given to here. To be honest, if we did not know who his inspiration was, we would hardly be able to guess that it was Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković received a painting about the election in Croatia. Unlike president’s painting, this is much more realistic, since it shows how elections are done in Croatia – chaotically.

The ambassador gave the painting about the “Agrokor Crisis” to Minister of Economy, Darko Horvat, who entered the government precisely because of the crisis since his predecessor had to resign after her involvement in the events surrounding the affair was discovered.

Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić received a painting of the Zagreb cathedral, while Zlatko Dalić, the manager of Croatia’s national football team, appropriately received a painting showing the successful performance of the Croatian national football team at the recent World Cup in Russia.

The ambassador is now leaving Croatia, so he will presumably focus his artistic talents on politicians and events in some other country.
