SHIKSHAMITRA is a process for learning to live better. It is a space where one

learns to keep well and to help others keep well too. Shikshamitra has an address.

However, it goes beyond this – permeating into the lives of many, influencing

one’s choices in life and ways of life. To be associated with Shikshamitra is to assume

the responsibility of trying to live better. It is a continuous attempt to search for

activities that inspire life and build trust, or, it is an attempt to keep away from

anything to the contrary. Shikshamitra is a means toward becoming aware of

how much one can be and knowing exactly what one’s limitations are.

Art Exhibition in Santiniketan

11-12 MARCH, 2011

Raja Mohan Das from SHUKTARA and Noor Islam from SHIKSHAMITRA will be exhibiting their work at ALCHA in Santiniketan next weekend. Please come show your support -- and spread the word!

The seeds of this show were planted way back in September when the owner of Alcha, a small cafe and boutique in Santiniketan, came to see our Growing With Art Exhibition. Keya liked the feeling of Raja and Noor's work together and suggested that they organise an art exhibition at her cafe in early 2011. Raja and Noor have been 'growing' their art portfolios since then and have chosen some of their favorite pieces to appear in the show. Another happy outcome of this exhibition is that Noor and Raja have become steadfast friends and have been influencing and inspiring each other in their pursuit to find their own approach, their own art voice.
