Gracy Singh and sufi singer Mudasir Ali support Sanyog, an exhibition initiative by 32 artists, aims to be the flame that lights up farmersves

“Artists, I don’t believe, are normal people They are people who get both affected and inspired by the happenings in this world. Hence it is no surprise that over 32 artists have come together with a painting exhibition of varied works, aptly titled Sanyog, to help the farmers of Maharashtra. Hence I decided to lend my support to the cause,” says actor Gracy Singh, who along with sufi singer Mudasir Ali inaugurated the exhibition at Coomaraswamy Hall, Chattrapati Shivaji Sangrahalaya.

Says Satish Patil, whose brainchild has given birth to this movement, “we are simple artists, not some social organisation that can collect millions. What we aspire to do is to simply get our works together and give the proceeds to help farmers in whatever way we can. I am so glad that Gracy Singh and Mudasir Ali are standing by us for this cause. ”

It was actually a thought that was ruminating in Satish’s mind for long. Says he, “I discussed it with my friends, and they in turn discussed with their friends and soon we had a movement.”

Fellow artists AJ Moujan, Amit K Patil, Aparna Telang, Ashok Hiremath, Deepika Garg, Dinesh Pimple, Dundamahadevaswamy, Gangadhar M, Govardhan K, Jagdish Kadur, Kalipada Purkait, Kishor R Kamble, Kupanna Kandgal, Manish A Hatkar, MD Hussen, Nandkumar Mestry, Nandita Desai, Prabhakar Wairkar, Rahul N Dangat, Ramakrishna Nayak, Ruma Nayak, Ramagiri P Patil, Spoorthy Murali, Satish B Patil, Santosh Kotagir, Sanjoy Mal, Sharanu Alloli, Satyendra Rane, Sharappa N Muddagoll, Sujit K More, Vishwanath S Raddewadagi and Yogesh D Murkute chipped in and soon, the dream was a reality. Satish is very happy as he is adding finishing touches to his work as we speak. Three children each on a staircase seem to be staring at us, signifying the strength of the artists joining forces. Says he, “it could have never been done by me alone. Each artist with his work, whether abstract, realistic, contemporary or figurative, has added his own touch and most importantly has listened to the sound of his heart. That is what the essence of Sanyog is.”

When you appreciate the effort, Satish prefers to be straight and to the point, “It is not large or something out of the world, our thought… It is something that I think everyone of us should think about and put into action,” says Satish as he speaks of his painter friends. “If each of us opens our hearts and pockets, there would be no starving farmer in India.”

Sanyog is on at Coomaraswamy Hall, Prince of Wales Museum, Fort, from 26th April to 28th April.

Prachi Desai and Vidyut Jammwal admit they do not know their mom’s dream

P&G urges children to say ‘Thank You Mom’ by coming forward to realize their mom’s lost dreams

· 95% moms agree that their children’s dream is their dream

· 93% moms agree that they would like their children to fulfill their dreams

· 77% of moms agree that they feel a sense of loss when reminded about their lost dreams

· 61% of moms agree that they do not realize their capabilities

· 55% of kids agree that they willingly do not contribute to house hold chores

· 76% of moms stopped pursuing their dream because of household work

Mumbai, Friday, 26th April, 2013: Vidyut Jammwal, and actor Prachi Desai, came together in Delhi at the P&G Thank You, Mom Survey launch to share heart-warming stories of how if it weren’t for their moms, they would not be living their dream today. Somewhere along the way, they all forgot what Vimla Jammwal and Amita Desai’s dreams were. Vidyut & Prachi are just cases in point. The AC Nielsen and P&G ‘Thank You Mom’ survey reveals that 77% of moms surveyed do not talk about their unfulfilled dreams.

With support from influencers and mothers from different walks of life, P&G enabled children to fulfil their mom’s wishes for them last year. This year the campaign led by P&G and its brands Ariel, Vicks, Whisper, Pampers goes one step further to realize a mom’s dream. These are her forgotten dreams that she had given less importance to, while realizing her children’s dream. Hence, P&G and children join hands this year to enable moms to free up their time & realize their dreams for themselves.

Interestingly, while 87% of moms surveyed said that they would like to have some free time for themselves, 79% of children stated that they would like to help their moms with daily chores, but they are too busy at work to help moms. But then, this is a great opportunity! After all, 93% of moms also say that they would like for their children to realize their dreams!

Commenting on the occasion, Kainaz Gazder, Marketing Director P&G Indiasaid “P&G has always strived to work towards touching and improving lives of mothers across the world. Each of P&G’s brands is committed towards identifying the challenges a mother faces in her everyday life, and is aiming at easing those with superior, consumer-meaningful products. We believe this purpose that drives us is the core reason for the loyalty our consumers bestow on us. While our products help a mom reduce the tediousness of her chores, as the proud sponsor of Moms, P&G’s ‘Thank You Mom’ hopes to also acknowledge a mom’s dedication towards the wellbeing of her family. In its second year, as part of the campaign, we, joins hands with children across the country to enable moms to realise at least one lost dream”

As children live the daily rush, they become oblivious to the efforts put in by mothers to reduce hurdles and simplify their lives. Moms continue to perform their duties selflessly, without expectations, at the cost of losing out on their own dreams- for some to be a successful working woman, a sports person, for others to be an accomplished musician, artist…

Speaking at the event, Prachi Desai said “My mom has been my friend, my confidant and a source of strength. Last year as part of the launch of P&G ‘Thank You Mom’ in India, I realised that I hardly ever thank my mother for the scores of little and big things she does for me day in and day out. This truth came to me almost as a shock, and ever since I have made it a part of my conscious self to express my gratitude to my mother as often as I can. , Saying Thank You Mom seems like the best thing I can now say”. She continued further to say “This year once again, this campaign has compelled me to think and bring forth the realisation that my mother has indeed sacrificed a lot of her dreams to make my dream of being an actress come true. This is really the time for me to make an attempt to find that lost dream and make every effort to realize it for my mother”

Given this, the second year of Thank You Mom aims to bring about a similar realisation in many more children, and get them to think about their mother’s unfulfilled dreams. After all, for all the sacrifices moms make for their children, what better way can a child say “Thank You Mom’ than by realising her lost dream.

Virtuous Retail’s Inaugural Flagship Centre – VR Surat Opens with Paresh Maity’s ‘Jal Tapi’ & ‘Dumas Art Project’

· Renowned artiste Paresh Maity pays unique tribute to Surat city with 50- foot boat installation – ‘Jal Tapi’

· Gujarat Gaurav Awardee Yazdi N. Karanjia joins hands as VR Surat’s Cultural Ambassador

Mumbai, April 26, 2013: India’s first and Surat’s only world-class integrated retail city centre & community lifestyle destination – VR Surat, Virtuous Retail’s inaugural Flagship Center in India opened its doors to the general public with two special art initiatives – Paresh Maity’s ‘Jal Tapi’ and ‘Dumas Art Project’.

Marking a momentous occasion for the city of Surat, internationally renowned artiste Paresh Maity unveiled ‘Jal Tapi’ – a life-sized boat installation created using the actual sailing vessel or ‘Hodhi’ that won the city’s annual Magdalla Boat Race in 2013.

Nationally acclaimed theatre personality Yazdi N. Karanjia joined hands as VR Surat’s Cultural Ambassador and endorsed Virtuous Retail’s ‘Connecting Communities’ initiatives to put Surat on the global tourism map.

Dumas Art Project at VR Surat features the iconic red sign ‘I Love Dumas Square’, and a 240-foot mural titled ‘Streat’; the installations celebrate Surat’s rich heritage and culture. The Project will also host a wonderful collection of 15 art installations over the summer, created by some of the most prominent and promising artistes from across India.

Anupam Yog, Marketing Director, Virtuous Retail, said, “Virtuous Retail is pleased to present the Dumas Art Project, Jal Tapi and Streat at VR Surat as an integrated platform to explore Surat’s untapped tourism potential. We believe Surat’s local economy will get a boost with the world class infrastructure at VR Surat that has been made available for retailers, travel & tour operators, event organizers, and the community at large. Our centers are uniquely designed and provide international standard experiential shopping. Art and culture are an integral part of that experience. Over 2013, we will continue to delight the citizens of Surat, and indeed all visitors into the city, with outstanding events and cultural initiatives.”

Yog added, “Sprawling across 6 lakh sq. feet, packed with unique outdoor and indoor experiences, and anchored by Shoppers Stop, Westside and INOX, VR Surat’s Phase I opening will see the launch of over 50 brands, many of which will be debuting in Surat and Gujarat.”

Maity’s bold strokes have transformed an innocuous looking boat into a stunning piece of public art. Painted in Maity’s trademark palette of vibrant orange, yellow and blue, the 30-foot high canvas sail of the Jal Tapi is a tribute to the spirit and culture of the people of Surat. This larger than life installation is permanently docked at the ‘Runway’ at VR Surat. Legendary in the coastal villages of Surat, the 105-year old boat race was adopted by Virtuous Retail in February 2012 as part of its ‘Connecting Communities’ programme.

Flanked by Magdalla Plaza and Dumas Square, the 240-foot one-of-its kind Art Mural titled ‘Streat’ is inspired by the legendary Surti obsession with food. It brings the vibrancy of Surat’s street food culture to Magdalla Plaza, a well-designed community space that features a spectacular outdoor LED screen, one of the largest digital public displays in India. It depicts the story of Surat from its origins to the present day. The Mural incorporates distinctive elements from the city’s everyday culture as well as rich heritage – The Flying Rani, Science Centre, Tapi River, The Chowk, Kites, Laaris, Hazira Lighthouse, Nehru Garden, Hope Bridge, Andrews Library, Zari, Magdalla Port, East India Co., Surat Castle, Suryapur, Gai Pagli, and many more, which unite to give it a unique character.

The bright red iconic installation ‘I Love Dumas Square’ at VR Surat celebrates the vibrancy of Surat’s favourite picnic destination, Dumas Road. It fills the gap for a much needed organized event space for art and cultural activities in the city, and will also host cafés and ice cream parlours.

Punctuated by moving pieces of art, VR Surat transforms into a veritable art gallery for the Dumas Art Project.

Dumas Square at VR Surat

Artiste Pooja Arora creates ‘Meter Down = Mood Down’ installation to highlight the dilemma and plight of passengers and auto/ cab drivers.
Artiste Yashash Patel pays homage to dabbawallas in ‘Surat – The City of Dreams.
Paresh Maity presents ‘Ants’ recreating a social ant colony in a unique way – with the bodies comprising motor bike parts, bike seats and even headlamps.
Artiste Hetal Shukla’s ‘Cart of Change’ is that of an ambassador car covered with 30,000 coins. This installation is an attempt to change the ‘poor artiste’ syndrome, an age old belief that artistes live in poverty.

Streat at VR Surat

Artistes Sonal Jadhavand and Nikhil Borhade create ‘Tarewarchi Kasarat’ (Marathi for walking the tight rope) is all about how we trade dreams for fame, status, fatter paychecks, fancier designations, etc.
Artiste Parveen Kaur’s ‘Ghatorora – Surat Dreams…Art for Change’ is a humorous and interactive artwork with magnifying glass to help people enjoy the lighter moments of life.

Magdalla Plaza at VR Surat

Artiste Vikram Arora’s “Corrupt Us” questions if ‘money’ is the biggest motivation ever even to perform one’s duties. Helpless citizens get frustrated and many end up paying the bribe so they can move on with their lives. It’s clear, the corrupt are corrupting us.
Artiste Namrata Surve’s ‘Life Blossoming’ is all about one beautiful thing passing a spirited life into another.
Artiste Haresh Mehta’s Cardboard Furniture – Thinking ‘Beyond the Box’ explores the versatility of corrugated boards. This medium, arguably the world’s simplest and greatest wonders of engineering gave him the opportunity to merge art with technology, resulting in innovative merchandising.
