“प्यार जब कहीं महकता है
किसी के रंगों और आकारों में
किसी के शब्दों और विचारों में
किसी के अभिनय और इशारों में
भाव विभोर जन्नत मुस्कराती है वहाँ
अपने नूरानी दिलकश नज़ारों में ….
It was a life time bliss in experiencing such emotions in an unique interactive session with the versatile artists who were together in an exhibition organised by Creative Karma. I was overwhelmed with the love and grace of dear Surinder Shanker Anand and dear Sonika who form the soul of this unique show of fruitful sentiments. Art is certainly a communication of the delight one feels about the world he lives in. All artists of this exhibition are capable of ruling the hearts of the mankind as they are alive to the value of selfless love.
