WHY DO I CREATE MANDALAS?

Mandala” is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms. A Mandala represents wholeness. The circular designs symbolize the notion that life is never ending. Many mandalas have spiritual significance to an individual or group of individuals. Mandalas are traditionally used as meditative tools and spiritual symbols. Carl Jung introduced the modern era to Mandala drawing as a form of self-discovery.

Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. They strive for a harmony of stillness and motion which provides the viewer both rest and energy. Mandalas are not planned but an intuitive and free flowing process that relaxes and heals the mind, mind and spirit not only for the creator but also for the person looking at the creation. Personally, since I derive great peace and happiness creating mandalas, I feel that those associated with the MSSI would benefit greatly by just looking deeply into the mandalas.

INDIRA SUSHEEL KUMAR

I have always been attracted towards art and creativity and this encouraged me to enrol into the Sir J J School of Art, Mumbai to pursue a diploma course in Textile designing. On completing my studies in the creative field, I added a Degree in Economics and Political Science from the Osmania University, Hyderabad.

After my education at Sir J J School of Art, Mumbai, I had set up my own studio, where batik, tie n die, and fabric painting were done on order basis. I have conceptualized and conducted two art exhibitions, comprising of my own creations

The experience of having worked in the Art Department of advertising agencies as a Visualizer helped me in the creative process. As a freelancer in the creative field for more than three decades, designing of mandaps, store windows, animations for newsletters are some of the areas where my designing and creativity comes to the fore.

MSSI at Goodseeds Mela

By | Hyderabad | No Comments

To create awareness for MS & MSSI at the First Sunday Organic Earth Mela by Goodseeds at Saptaparni, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

Goodseeds is a platform to promote healthy, holistic, and sustainable living ideas. It was founded by Mr. Narayan Murthy in 2012. He has extended his support to the Hyderabad Chapter of MSSI by giving a free stall at every mela happening in the city. Young women entrepreneurs and the elite who visited the mela showed great interest in the activities of MSSI.

MSSI Hyderabad participated in the mela in January and March and it was observed that there were many who were still unaware of the existence of such an Institution. Many volunteered to contribute and support the MS cause.

“forms of the formless” – a book launched by MSSI Hyderabad in 2011 was sold at the mela at a discounted price, with the author Ms Amita Talwar personally signing the copies. The proceeds of the sale were generously donated by her to MSSI Hyderabad.

“MSSI added flavour to Goodseeds mela” was a pleasing remark made by Mr. Narayan Murthy. MSSI Hyderabad is grateful to him for the opportunity provided.

Ms. Basa Nagmani, renowned long distance runner and Asian games Gold Medalist, flagged off the walk and was felicitated by our chairperson.

The walk drew publicity with TV channels like TV1 and TV9, newspapers like The Hindu and the local daily Telangana Today covering the programme which helped to bring focus on MS.

The highlight of the programme was two persons with MS who were on their daily morning walk registered with the society and a guest registered as a life member.
