Online Art Exhibition of Drawings in Black and White
गुरू पारस कोअन्तरो, जानत हैं सब संत।
वह लोहा कंचन करे, ये करि लेय महंत।।
As said by Kabir Das, A Teacher and Philosopher's Stone are distinguishable by the wise; the Philosopher’s Stone turns the metal into gold. But a great teacher transforms his disciples and inspires them to reach the skies just like himself.
A Guru (mentor) will always guide his disciple for his betterment. He is the one who ignites hope, imagination and instils the love of learning in the heart of his disciple. This Love of learning is the most necessary lesson and in it lies happiness, strength and calmness. It is a remedy for what ails us. It is indeed an unending source of pleasure. When a Guru instils this into his disciple, he is preparing him not only for his life, but also for the whole world. A Guru not only constructs the life of his disciple but also contemplates the future of the society through him. Blessed is the one who has such a Guru in life.
Eminent artist of his times, Sh. Chintamani Kar implanted and nurtured the then budding artist Sh. Biman Bihari Das, who is one of the most renowned sculptors all around the world now. Sh. Das continued the Guru-Shishya Parampara and planted the same seed into Dr. Sanjeev Kumar. Today, Dr. Sanjeev Kumar is a well known sculptor. He didn’t forget his responsibilities and passed on his knowledge to his students.
Nirantar group was started by Mr. Sanjeev Kumar, Ms. Disha Sharma and Mr. Shriprakash Rawat back in 1996. It was revived in the year 2017 by the next generations of disciples. It believes in and follows the ‘Guru-Shishya Parampara’ and is devoted to foster the same.
Each year Group Nirantar presents exhibitions dedicated to Guru- Shishya Parampara in different parts of the country. These exhibitions are adorned by the artworks of three to four Guru-Shishya generations.
