An online Platform by Paramparik Karigar

What an eventful and surprising year 2020 has turned out to be! We have had to change the way we do many things- the way we negotiate public spaces, the way we conduct relationships, the way we do business , why, even the way we buy groceries!

Things at Paramparik Karigar have been no different. We have been forced to take a new look at many things too. Like our weekly meetings that are now on Zoom. It has been wonderful inviting people you know and work closely into our homes.

But these changed circumstances have also made us rethink the way we work with our Karigars. For , now our karigars face an unique problem- a lot of those beautiful handcrafted or handwoven products in stock and no access to the markets. So we wore our thinking caps and we Luddites have decided , a maiden effort for us, to provide an online platform for you , our dear supportive patron, and our talented and dedicated Karigars , to meet where they will showcase and sell their work.

Our special Karigar Sahayog Sale will be going up in a few days on our facebook page and our Insatagram. We will be featuring one artisan a day and you can interact with them directly as always, as in any Paramparik Karigar event, only this time virtually. Exciting times for all of us, don?t you think – for you our Patron, for our Karigar and for us too!

We will share specific details of the event here soon. Looking forward to seeing you all through our handles . We are counting on your continued support of our Karigars.

Stay healthy. Stay safe.

Savitha Suri, a patron of all things Indian and handmade and supporter of Paramaparik Karigar, beautifully captures , in the video below ,a moment , in the life of a Dokra sculpture and the artisan Rajib Maity.

She writes. “We stared at the sculpture, counting only 9 heads and 10 arms.Is it or is it not Ravan? That was the question. The craftsman stood with an amused look and finally picked the piece and turned it round. And there it was! The 10th head! It was Ravan after all. Ravan was born with one head and the rest he acquired through penance. It is said he wanted to keep an eye on what went on behind him, hence one at the back.He was said to be a great devotee of Lord Shiva. Also exceptionally talented- musician, scholar, administrator par excellence.That morning, a craftsman narrated the story of a man who was all too familiar. That morning, a craftsman showed me a mirror.”

Thank you Savitha Suri for sharing so generously your video and your thoughts.

Remembering Padmashri Jivya Soma Mhase

Remembering Padmashri Jivya Soma Mhase

Jivya-Soma-Mashe Warli Art India Karigar Padmashri

Deeply saddened to announce the passing away of one of our pioneer Karigars, Padmashri Jivya Soma Mhase

He will be remembered as the artist who took Warli art to a high aesthetic level.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to his grieving family and pray to give them strength during this difficult time.

So many of us have met Jivya over the years, here is one of our digital partners, Ananth V, who had met him and interacted with Jivya for an entire day, sharing his experience about this amazing artist:

Ananth V:The moment you mention the words WARLI ART, the first name that comes to our minds is,Jivya Soma Mhase. I met him and his humbleness coupled with his creative grandeur and simplicity was simply mesmerising. Such a loving, simple, creatively brilliant legend and his attitude towards art, his passion for Warli, his little town, the people, family was instantly and positively contagious.One could feel the passion he had for this form of art just by speaking to him for a few minutes and I was extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to be able to spend the entire day with him and talk to him.

Jivya Soma Mhase was, is and will always live in our hearts. He has made our nation proud. I am deeply saddened to note about his passing and I pray to the almighty to give his family and friends strength to deal with it during this difficult time.

Jivya, you will remain in our hearts forever”
