Artistic Azaadi: An Online Exhibition


When Neel came to volunteer with Aarambh over the summer, we had planned for him to be working with our communications team. Within the first few days, we realized that his copious skills with pencil and paint could be passed on to the children at Prerana’s Centres.

Soon, along with his communications work, Neel started drawing sessions at Prerana’s Falkland Road Center and the Naunihal Children’s Home at Kharghar. The exhibition ‘Artistic Azaadi‘ that you are about to see is the outcome of these sessions.

“I have had an awesome time working with the kids and the people at Prerana’s Aarambh Initiative. The team is great and treats each other like family,” says Neel.

“Aarambh has set a very high bar for me now, as working with them was so much fun that its going to be hard to find another place like this.”

We wish all the very best for his future.

The dragon is a powerful and beautiful animal that I like to draw. I have loved dragons ever since I saw Harry Potter. I love the way it looks and the way it can breathe fire.

Whenever small children are unhappy, you must show them a butterfly. Almost immediately the child will start smiling and laughing and giggling. It is a truly beautiful creature.

I don’t like it when we fight with our neighbors. I want peace between India and Pakistan. Doves who are the symbols of peace fly across the borders and through these doves I want to give a message of peace and friendship between the two countries.
