Screenshot_20171010_230758Mumbai, October 10th 2017 (GNS)   : The Indira Gandhi National Centre of the Arts (IGNCA), an autonomous body under the Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India is hosting an exhibition of paintings depicting life and times of Chhatrapati Shivaji, the legendary Maratha king whose crusade against the Mughals marked beginning of the struggle for independence.

Titled `Chhatrapati Shivrai Mahotsav’,  the exhibition is being held at the Indira Gandhi National Centre of Arts, Janpath, New Delhi, the ten-day festival will include a Marathi Food Festival, talks, symposia on various aspects of Shivaji’s leadership as an able general, a visionary, father of Indian navy, an astute strategist and a diplomat par excellence. To celebrate this exhibition, leading stationery brand Kokuyo Camlin has tied-up with ‘Aamchi Dilli’, a Delhi based Group to simultaneously organize a painting competition for school children on Shivaji Maharaj.

The art competition for the children will begin from October 8th2017 with the winners being announced on October 16th 2017 at a glittering ceremony at the same venue. The art competition will be in two groups – Junior Group for class IV to VII and the Senior Group from class VIII to XII. Participants will need to share details on the back of their drawing sheet including name of the participant, the Class and name of the school. There will be two ways for school children to participate in this art competition – On the Spot – wherein children that are attending the Chhatrapati Shivrai Mahotsav, can participate on the spot and create their painting at the venue anytime between 10 am and 6 pm. On the spot participants will also receive gifts from Kokuyo Camlin.

The other way to participate in the art competition is through School Entries — The medium of painting is crayon/pencil colours/ poster colours/ water colours on A3 size paper. The children can make the paintings in their respective schools. Also the entries will be accepted only through schools, each entry to be duly certified by the respective school. The last date to send in the entries is October 13th 2017 by 5 pm to the organizers (IGNCA) at the venue. The subject of the competition is Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Three prizes of Rs 5001, Rs 3001 and Rs.1001 will be given to each group. A panel of judge will decide on the winners.

Says Saumitra Prasad, Chief Marketing Officer, Kokuyo Camlin, “We are thrilled to partner with IGNCA and Aamchi Dilli, as part of this ten-day exhibition and feel that this art competition is a great platform to raise awareness among school children about one of our greatest leader. We are expecting the Delhi school children to participate in huge numbers in the art competition and visit the 10-day exhibition to learn more about Shivaji Maharaj. We are also promoting the art competition on our social media platform so that children who cannot visit exhibition but can still participate by sending the paintings online”

While the school children participate in the art competition on Shivaji Maharaj,  the ten-day `Chhatrapati  Shivrai Mahotsav’ is a treasure trove for art aficionados  and will showcase over 120 paintings, some of these measuring 6x4meter and have been drawn by artist duo from Mumbai- Shrikant and Gautam Chougule under inspiration from and guidance of Shivshahir  Babasaheb Purandare. Purandare, 96, has devoted his life climbing the forts of Maharashtra and researching Shivaji.

The idea behind the event is to acquaint the people of Delhi, especially students with India’s rich history and present through art, various aspects of the life and times of the great Maratha King whose crusade against the Mughals led ultimately to the downfall of the Mughal Empire.ENDS
