The face painting competition
What do you see in a mirror? aks, parchaai, tasveer, pratichhaya or pratibimb - it has many names; call it anything, our reflection never leaves us. In it we see our innate desires, hopes, unfulfilled dreams, inner demons, burdened soul or maybe at times a free spirit. There’s a face behind each face, it could be uglier or even more beautiful than the mask one dons. It seeks to be let out. It wants to be seen. What better than painting that idea on a face? Presenting “Pratibimb” – the face painting competition where participants get to paint their imagination on their subjects’ faces letting their creative juices flow in all splendors. So next time you look into a mirror, remind yourself, what do you seek?
