Hyderabad: Thota Vaikuntam, eminent senior artist was the chief guest at the valedictory of the four-day art camp by artists & students - PUNARKRITI, hosted by Hyderabad Arts & Culture Foundation; Pegasus Art Gallery and Mahila Dakshata Samithi, on Tuesday at Suman Junior College, Chandanagar.

Agarwal, Former IAS, President, Hyderabad Arts & Culture Foundation; the participating artists, fifteen student artists from Mahila Dakshata Samiti, Art connoisseurs, several socialites and prominent citizens. Mahila Dakshata Samiti, a non-Government, non-political, non-sectarian national body focussed on Woman and Child Welfare, working towards uplifting of the underprivileged girl students for nearly four decades; has hosted the initiative. It brought together celeb artists and underprivileged student artists from Mahila Dakshata Samiti through the platform - Punarkriti.
The students immensely benefited by learning about the intricacies of art, which also aided them to fine tune their artistic skills, while it was an opportunity for the artists to know first-hand the hardship and poverty the students experienced and the background they hail from, said Dr Saroj Bajaj. Some of artifacts of the student artists on display were an outpouring of the struggles they overcame with determination to accomplish something in the lives, she adds.
