It is refreshing to see an educational institution implementing a project which involves developing a garden so that their students can utilise it for all kinds of art forms. We were at the inaugural event of “Kalagram”, an initiative of Ramanbaug School at Pune.
The inauguration was done by senior cartoonist Shri. S. D. (Shi. Da.) Phadnis who demonstrated the art of cartoon drawing apart from talking to the children who were enthusiastic participants on this occasion. Artist Chitra Vaidya demonstrated watercolour painting for the children.
A key feature of Kalagram is the resolve to make it completely environmentally friendly. Thus the garden is watered by a pump which is powered by a stationary bicycle kept there and children take turns to pedal it.
