An ode to divine

An ode to divine
It is this divine energy that gives the artiste the impetus to donate the entire proceeds of his exhibition for the children of Nanpur in Odisha, the village he was born in, the village that discovered his creative innovation, the village that continues to inspire Mohanti.

The artiste whose heart still lives in Nanpur would like to replicate the ‘hole in the wall’ experiment of Sugata Mitra where a computer was placed in a slum wall with access to all. The amazing results showed that children learnt to use the computer and the internet all on their own, without any knowledge of the English language. For the young girls and boys of Nanpur, the artiste has already set up a school where children can learn English and computers. The proceeds of his artwork will help the school buy computers, pay for online connections and to the English and computer teachers.

The artiste will also release his coffee table book titled, Shunya.
