Event Description :  Ameyaa "Immeasurable" a solo art exhibition by Bipasha Sen Gupta

The unmatched entity of a complete woman ,of strength, perseverance, fearlessness, determination, and yet vivacious ,sensual and compassionate  , the destroyer of all evil and the protector of the three worlds ,the all forgiving yet inaccessible, someone who can move the sky yet be beautiful like the moon, the ever courageous and valiant , the bestower yet supreme, the passionate lover, the fond mother yet the successful lioness!!

It all started years ago when a young girl ,six years old was taught by her grandfather the “ashtottor satanam “ or the 108 names of durga .He said this was concentration focus and meditation of the body and mind.

Every morning i would get up bathe and sit next to him and recite .I knew the whole recitation by heart and my grandfather took great pleasure and had immense admiration for me. At that time it was like a rote performance but i never realised that a soft chant recited everyday would leave an impact on my life.

Years later the woman in me formed, taking stances from the whole. Like durga ,I learnt to be fearless strong devoted yet loving and sensitive, fight for my rights ,learnt the rules and carved a way of life. The road is long and unfinished but as i sit back and think it was indeed a magic mantra that grandfather gave me! In fact a mantra every woman of today should use, to fight ,sustain and travel her life. Find herself  and make an identity for herself. We have to learn to take the best from what we get, skilfully tune situations and move graciously yet humbly and cautiously to make our lives a complete whole.

The courage to take a call stand up for truth and generous enough to forgive,show empathy yet sternly weave your way.It is not easy to be DURGA for she is indeed AMEYAA or THE immeasurable....

Let the challenge be the driving force.

 Durga Ashtottara Satnam is the auspicious recitation of 108 names of Devi Durga by her devotees.The various names of Devi Durga and the accompanying mantra chants are said to have the power to redeem one from all the difficulties in life. It fills one with strength to combat the vicissitudes in life.
I have picked my favourite ones in my tea soaked images of the deity

Highly influenced by the effects of Global Warming and the rapid disappearance of the Coral Reefs during her visit to the Maldives & the Andaman Islands, she realized how important it was for humankind to preserve the nature.  Year 2011 she released another series of paintings named “How Blue is My Ocean?” depicting the serious impact of global warming and the gradual disappearance of coral reefs which was first exhibited at the India International Center, New Delhi.  She visited the Maldives archipelago as the State Guest and was invited to exhibit her paintings at the National Art Gallery, Male, Maldives in an event organized in collaboration with the National Centre for the Arts, the Indian High Commission and the Maldives Marketing & Public Relations Corporation in celebration of World Environment Day on 5th June 2011.
