A road-side Artist, a man like lotus.

Under the Beaming sun, while roaming around the crowded streets;

We Stumbled on the Art by the pavement, today.

The person, he was so whiz at his artwork.

So hypnotized by it, failed to heed the horde of people around who were admiring him.

He created Art from anything and everything that was given to him; paper, cloth, plastic, thermacol, ribbons, feathers, rope. Literally anything and everything!

In the city like Mumbai, where people are so toiling at proliferating their income, it was so awe-inspiring to spot someone who was making these wonderful art and giving it away to the people he come across, without excepting any profits, in return.

He solely engaged himself with an Art because, he enjoyed it and he never wanted to turn it into a business. Maybe because, he wanted to keep the REAL artist within him alive, who just craved to experiment with the creativity he possessed rather than channelizing it into a source of Income.

Have a look at the pictures and you would get to know how wonderful his work is to be not sold for any returns.
He claimed, its been more than 25 years that he is associated with this artwork.

He added, he has travelled to many cities and villages in India, over all these years and has left a foot mark of his wonderful art everywhere he went.

While summarizing, we would love to say that, we were deeply touched by the gestures of this person,
who truly justifies the meaning of his name, “Arvind” means; lotus.

Which is;

a symbol of purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals

He will always keep reminding us,

why most of the Artists chose to be poor by income but Rich at heart and at their Art

WELL paper : Women Empowerment through Local Livelihood, aims at empowering local village women to build their skills, manage and maintain the self-sustaining units.

All the products made by them are Handmade and eco-friendly, transforming recycled newspapers into Art.
You would be dumbfound after having a look at an art they create, be it a basket, ear rings, bowls, coasters, bracelets, papier-mache  figures. Everything is so pleasing to the eye.
