“…this is a yuga; a yuga wherein adharma will precede Dharma; corruption will envelope countries; mass deaths will occur via natural calamities; dishonesty will win over honesty; virginity will be lost easily and without any reluctance; traditions & Vedic knowledge will be lost to ignorance….”
As I listen to this excerpt from a Tamil article religiously read out by my mom, I actually wondered how can such extremes coexist in such a yuga?
Ahmedabad recently got to witness the inauguration of Sekhar Mukerjee’s exhibit of sketches at AF’ Ahmedabad.!! Man I was awed! Awed by his sketched vision. Stupefied with his imagination. Stunned by his work. Anything else I could think of?? Help me! Truly said by his teachers who were also present at the inaugural, his work is so divine, so fabulous that one can only keep raving about it. That’s why I questioned does he belong to this very same yuga??
Since his childhood Sekhar had an inkling towards sketching. It was only him and his sketchbooks. Whether the outer world approved of his marriage with this adorable love it didn’t really matter to him. Of course how could he be? When it was already universally approved!! Because when I asked him if he weren’t sketching his way what he would have been then, the instant reply which he gave was “The heart finds it’s own way… from chartered accountancy to a shift in this art of sketching was always predetermined hence it had to be this” woow I pondered over his this brainy reply I moved on to my next question. I asked him what would his advice would be for today’s generation who would want to follow his suit, all he could say was “focus is all needed. You need to focus till you achieve it”.
Literally I was stung by his words, his work and his incredible work. Did someone just say it was ‘Kalyuga’??
Thank you Sekhar for allowing Ahmedabad to witness your magnificent talent! This city will always cherish it! The exhibit is extended till August 22, 2013 from 11 am to 8 pm at AF’ Ahmedabad.
