the stories on temple wall

 

How many temples are there in India?

 

We are sure, Google will give you a figure, but is that convincing? The count is debatable. Now, let's stream down to…how many of them have you visited till now? Surely a lot of them, starting from the temples of the South to the Monasteries in the North, the terracotta temples in the East to the rocky temples in the caves of the West. As a tourist or devotee, one may have walked straight inside the temple. The organizations related to Architecture, Heritage, and its conservation, however, looks much more beyond that. Every temple wall, especially the one which has story line ups inscribed, or curved on it, speaks a lot. All those Temple Walls have stories which they are echoing silently for ages.

 

VIBGYOR attempts to add volume to those silent echoes, and read out the stories on Temple Wall, from India, and beyond. The selected stories are also sketched on a paper strip, which is re-used from scrap, about to be thrown away. All these paper strips are waste paper from wall calendars being prepared by a corporate office. The sketches and the interpretations are done by Indranil Mukherjee, founder member of VIBGYOR. All interpretations may not be the actual, as interpreted by professional historians and archeologists. So, an open request to all, to kindly rectify the interpretation in case of any misunderstanding. VIBGYOR would love to rectify the same thereafter.

All these sketches will be framed after the lockdown period, and we intend to sell them to raise funds for helping the distressed families due to COVID-19 and Amphan.

MOTIVE

  1. HERITAGE AWARENESS: To make viewers aware of the skilled work of art across the wall of the temples, in India and beyond

  2. SAVE TREES: West Bengal has lost too many numbers of trees due to this Amphan. Every paper saved is a tree saved. Every post will emphasize the fact of planting a tree.

SUGGEST A STORY

  1. The temple wall image must have a visible story. Partial broken may be considered.

  2. The temple may be from India or abroad, that is not a concern. It must have a strong storyline and not just design aesthetics.

  3. Select images with stories in a strip. Check the sketching details to get further clarity.

  5. In a calendar month, one person may suggest a maximum of 3 images/stories.

  6. All suggestions must be shared only across the online form:

  7. If your story is selected, the post will have your details mentioned.

  9. Only the courier cost of this framed sketch (if applicable) has to be borne by the receiver.

  10. All prizes will be couriered/handed over to the winner only when the Indian Postal system starts functioning normally again.

IRSHAAD

A Collection of Poems

 

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.”

-John F Kennedy
