Artists' perception

It is said Lord Ganesha has large ears because he is a good listener and then solves the miseries of his devotees, which is why he is known as Vighn-harta, or remover of obstacles. This is also why one prays to Ganesha before any venture. This aspect of the Elephant God was recently presented by various artists, each in their own unique style. The exhibition, Maha Ganapati, held at Mirus Art Gallery, showcased the works of as many as 30 senior artists. It was inaugurated by BJP MP Udit Raj, in the presence of international fashion designer Sonia Gurnani, who was the guest of honour. The show was been exclusively curated by Praveen Upadhye.
