The Dec 2017 Painting Contest was about ‘Thank You’. Paintings poured in from all over India. From Agartala and Aizwal in the northeast, to Bareilly and Ludhiana in the north, to Coimbatore and Kochi in the south, and Vadodara and Navi Mumbai in the west. Our judges loved them. We saw unique concepts, lovely brushwork, and dollops of colours. Choosing one was hard. Yet, it had to be done. And true to our cause, we have another contest lined up for January 2018 – like we have been doing every month.
The winner for this contest is Abhinav Ahluwalia, 10 years, from Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. The idea is to pay homage to the soldiers who risk their lives to protect us. What a noble idea, and what a lovely depiction! Congratulations!
