In the Picture : Punit Sharma ('Kya Mein Hero Hoon?' (Am i a Hero?)
Read his actions below and judge yourself if he claim to be a Hero.
The listing is resumed only because artist and art galleries have nothing to do with the gallery manager who just do a bit clerical work. Avoid booking this venue otherwise if possible.
Reason of Blacklisting Triveni Kala Sangam by Rohit Malik, Editor / Founder, DelhiEvents.com : This venue is blacklisted from DelhiEvents.com because of abusive and political behaviour by Puneet Sharma ( Gallery Manager ) and Security Guard.
: The manager Puneet Sharma was denying me information few times. He was also rude many times which made me angry and i scolded him few times and told him that i'll complain to the owner but he further got angry due to this.
Main reason is that he is influenced by one desperate magazine 'Delhi ....'. other than his thinking that he is a great man just because he is taking care of Triveni by doing clerical work. Greatness lies in humbleness and not in being threatened when anyone enters in your territory. That's Animalistic!
So, it's all about cheap politics.
They also told Triveni artists to turn hostile against me and i suspect that these people also mess-up with my bike to harm me physically. Such people and such magazines must be severely punished for such unethical practices!
He used to say that he has no time to send an email which is funny as it hardly takes a minute and he was rude and hateful many times. I warned him that i will complain to the owner but this guy was unaffected like our Rathore ( You must have read about this popular case in the papers and watched in TV )
Inspite of that, visited Triveni many times to get the information. I gave them free publicity inspite of their rude behaviour thinking that the artists must not suffer because of these idiots but there is a limit of tolerance.
One Day when i went to i even went at triveni to get the information as usual, Puneet Sharma was rude as usual then i went to the owner but she is an old lady and completely blinded by them. So, even she decided to go with this idiot.
I was taking his picture so that i can send it to my media friends to tell about him but he tried to snatch my camera and even pushed me down. I warned him not to touch me but even the guard pushed me out.
So, this is too much! They must be running after me with money for their promotion. They have no respect for someone who is doing good work and promoting them for free. Shameless People!
This idiot must apologize to me or must be thrown out of his job and only then i will publish triveni events (except few artists who request themselves to publish their exhibitions) or enter there ever again.
Update : Even the new owner 'Amar Shridharani' haven't done anything even after sending him an email and didn't even gave me his phone number.
