Sakal Social Foundation & Pixel School jointly organizing Ashadhi wari “Indrayani te Chandrabhaga – Chitrapravas” Photography competition & exhibition.
“Pandharpur Wari” – Myriad Moods- Photography @ Pandharpur
From Indrayani to Chandrabhaga
The Pandharpur Wari, an 800 year old tradition in Maharashtra has been nurtured by the Sakal Social Foundation and SMG to become one of the largest congregations of humans in the state. The march of a million devotees has numerous shades, nuances and aspects, which if not captured for eternity, would be lost for the generations to come.
To capture the myriad moods of the Pandharpur Wari, the “Indrayani to ChandrabhagaChitragras” Photo Competition is being organized for the last two years by the Sakal Social Foundation in conjunction with Sakal Media Group. The idea is to catch the hues and nuances of this festival of humanity through the eyes of the camera (irrespective of it being a mobile, tab or a regular camera).
A 3-day exhibition of the best photographs, curated from among the thousands of entries received is held at the iconic BalGandharva Art Gallery, Pune. This provides exposure to the photographers and artists for their art.
“Indrayani to ChandrabhagaChitragras” Facebook page is also created, so as to ensure that the diaspora spread globally can have access to scintillating glimpses of the Wari, including exposure to talent from India/Maharashtra across the globe.
