Padma Venkataraman sprach einleitend über die Hintergründe und Ziele der BINDU-ART-SCHOOL, ihrer Studentinnen und über die positiven Veränderungen, die die Schule in der gesamten Leprakolonie bewirkte.

Unsere StudentInnen sprachen über die Veränderungen ihres eigenen Lebens durch die Arbeit mit Kunst und die daraus entstandenen sozialen Interaktionen mit indischen und westlichen Menschen außerhalb der Leprakolonie.

Die Bindu-Künstler wurden von Hyundai auch eingeladen ihre Bilder zu präsentieren und über die gezeigten Arbeiten zu sprechen. Die Manager waren von den Vorträgen sehr berührt und der sehr lang andauernde Applaus schenkte den StudentInnen und Künstlern Respekt und große Freude.
Padma Venkataraman dankte der Hyundai Firmenleitung für die Gastfreundlichkeit und die Möglichkeit das soziale Stigma von Menschen, die mit Lepra infiziert wurden, zu reduzieren.

Wir danken der Firma Hyundai, und Frau Sivaranjani für die Einladung zu diesen Events und wünschen ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg bei ihren geschätzten sozialen Aktivitäten.
