The Republic Day Spirit

This Republic Day, Delhi-based NGO Family Of Disabled (FOD) and Select Citywalk join hands to pay tribute to the soldiers of our country through an exclusive exhibition-cum-sale of original paintings on January 25-26, from 11 am – 11 pm at Central Citywalk. You are also invited to witness the two extremely talented artists with disabilities painting live @ Central Atrium, Select CITYWALK, Saket, New Delhi on January 26 between 12-2 p.m. and 5:30- 8:30pm.

Both the participating artists, Sheela Sharma (from Lucknow), who paints with her toes as she lost both her arms in a train accident, and Shreekant Dube (from Delhi) who couldn’t fulfill his dreams of entering the army as his right arm got amputated due to an accident but trained himself to write and paint with his left hand, are living examples of the Huber Humphrey quote, “It is not what life takes away from you that counts. It’s what you make of what is left with you.” These artists have triumphed over their disabilities and completed their Masters in Arts.

Pratham Book wishes you all a very happy Republic Day!
