This is the story of a young boy who lives in a remote village in Maharashtra. He decides to get a large pocket stitched for his school shirt, in which he keeps all his precious belongings - petals, coins, marble balls; A pocket, he is proud of. It sets him apart from others his age, whose pockets are not only smaller in comparison but also ordinary and similar to each other in appearance.The little boy does not understand the politics of symbolism that adults engage in, and his pocket soon becomes a point of contention amongst elders in the village ...
This tragic story of the loss of innocence and coming-of-age of a young boy, is ironically symbolic of the times we live in.
Raj Pritam More is visual-fine Indian Contemporary artist live and work in Mumbai.His achievements are, he has many feathers on his cap-from being a 54th National Award winner Lalit Kala Academy New Delhi. Winner of Asia Art Award by EM Art Gallery & a collaborative venture with Korean Govt, Seoul, Korea.Now he directed his first short film ''Khisa''(pocket) and also produces by him self.
The story narrates a social-political contemporary tale on recent time period.
Even today we are more concerned about caste and religion rather then our daily bread. We always love to talk about our history and we have always used our great men for own selfish needs.This short film "Khisa", throws light on these issues.

Lead us from Unreality to the Reality, Lead us from the Darkness to the Light , Lead us from the Fear of Death to the Knowledge of Immortality
After World War -II, the world has faced such huge disaster and loss of lives only now, during this dark phase of Covid-19 pandemic. Being artists we can feel the unrest, sorrow and misery of people everywhere in the world. In this difficult situation every human being has become a warrior, fighting together against this dark period with strong hopes, faith and energy leading towards light. This paradigm-shifting pandemic has made us realize the uncertainty, nothingness and completeness in human life.
|Recent Works by Vilas Shinde|
This situation also emphasizes the role of hope and faith of man in the infinite journey of survival of civilizations through various natural and man-made disasters since ancient times to the modern era.
'A ray of hope’ presents majorly achromatic artworks of Contemporary artists coming together to represent their individual approaches and style, that reveal different aspects of hopes and faith in the context of human survival. In today's turbulent, uncertain socio-political and economic world, most people from the common man to the intelligentsia are worried about their future. Even in this difficult situation, the creative artist is trying to keep the flame of empathy alive in the society with the rod of positive energy, with his devotion to art, aspiration for life and hope for a bright future.
In art history, the absence and presence of light is used to represent spiritual energy, divinity, gods and goddess and so on. Brahman in Indian Vedic literature, Chinese theory of Yin and Yang, Buddhist theory of Shunyavada, The Theory of Big bang discuss about the 'nothingness ' and 'completeness' that relates to black and white. Scientifically, black and white do not have specific wavelengths. Instead, white light contains all wavelengths of visible lights. Black, on the other hand, is the absence of visible light. At the same time in color theory, white is the absence of all color and black is the presence of all color. A visual play using black and white together creates neutrality and infiniteness.
This online exhibition will be an opportunity for talented, budding, young artists from India to showcase their art with senior artists to boost their energy. The works of all these talented artists working in various styles of contemporary Indian art will be readily available to art lovers and art collectors from all over the world.
I am grateful to Senior Contemporary artists Sudhir Patwardhan, Dilip Ranade, Vilas Shinde, Ravindra Salve for accepting an invitation for this show. I am also thankful to all Artists who responded to invitation and open call for this Exhibition.
