The Art Medium II series of art workshops conducted by the Devi Art Foundation were a great learning experience for our children. They worked with materials available in the house and did exciting projects where creativity and self-expression were brought out and the fun element was a constant. The children learnt about team-work and had a great time. The final show was wonderful as they got to exhibit their work in front of their school teachers, parents and friends. This project helped boost their confidence levels and exposed them to a lot of good works of art.

Vanya Jairaj of class 4A participated in the Kukdukoo Art Fest- an All India Art Competition organized by Camel India.

This is what the little artist has to say about her drawing-

This drawing is about the world which we live in and all the things that happened due to climate change, example pollution, forest fire, habitat destruction etc. The girl in the picture is me as an astronaut and a Scientist who is on a mission to save the planet Earth. For this I created a health potion and went to space to spread it all over the earth to heal it.

Short story by Midori - Lulu

On a sunny day, a fisherman waited by the river. It was a long, long wait. Yet, he couldn’t find his catch. He was about to give up … hang on!  He netted something.

Oops! It was a shoe! Next, he found a can. And then, more cans, more junk. Wait. The there was a box, too.

Pop. The box opened on its own. A fish was inside.

“Hello! I am Lulu,” the fish spoke up. The fisherman jumped in shock. “Please don’t hurt me. I can do magic, fulfil three of your wishes,”

Lulu the fish, said.

“What, really?” the fisherman said, still unable to believe. “Umm

…let me try. My best friend’s mom has covid. They are too poor to buy medicines. Can you help?”

“Of course, I can. Go to his house and check. There will be a bagful of medicines outside her door.”

The fisherman floated the box with Lulu back in the waters and went back to the village to check on his friend’s mom.  Indeed, the family found medicines by the door, along with a prescription on what to take and when!

“Magic, magic” the villagers shouted.

….

The fisherman went back to the same spot by the river in a few days.

The box appeared from the waters. Pop! Lulu the fish came out.

“How is your friend’s mom now?” “Very well. I have come to thank  you.” “Do you have a second wish?”

“Yes. My eight- year old daughter was playing in the forest. She ran after a butterfly.  Now, we can’t find her. It has been a few hours

and everyone is anxious. Can you help?”

“Of course. She will be back by the time you are home. Go.”

The fisherman went back.  Indeed, his daughter found her way back. She was playing, and happy.

The fisherman and his wife were happier.

….

The fisherman was back to meet Lulu in a month. His wife had suddenly passed away of a lung disease. He was sad.

“Lulu, Lulu”.

The box floated up, and Lulu came out.

“Hello! Do you have a third wish?”

“Yes. My wife died. The doctor said it was because of pollution.  My daughter and I don’t want to live on land anymore.  Make us fish. We want to live with you.”

“Ha ha. It is no better here. You humans have polluted our waters. We are dying. I can’t grant this wish.”

“I am sorry, Lulu.”

“Clean the waters. Plant more trees. Don’t burst crackers. Both of us can live happily.”

Lulu disappeared.

The fisherman began cleaning the river the next day. He pulled out plastic bottles and cans. The villagers saw and joined him. They also planted hundreds of trees along the river, and in their village. The village head sent out a notice—no tree should be cut. In a few months, the villagers noticed a change. The air felt better, it rained more.  Fields were green with plentiful of crops.

The fisherman went back to meet Lulu. It was a sunny day. Birds chirped. The water was so clean he could see a school of fish play.

“Lulu, Lulu”

The box did not float up. The river smiled.
