COLOURS OF LIFE - EXHIBITION & SALE OF PAINTINGS

All these flowers are for you - Gogi Saroj Pal For the second consecutive year, Cancer Patients Aid Association organised "Colours of Life" an art exhibition and sale of paintings by renowned artists for the cause of children with cancer. Today's successful artists have struggled earlier on in their careers and enormous sacrifices have been made by themselves and their family members to nurture the gift. "Panchali" - Anindita SinghYet whenever society has appealed to them, the artists have given generously. As CPAA found this year as well as last.

Through the art exhibition and sale held for the first time in 2005, we were able to reach out and support the treatment of 194 children suffering from cancer as against the previous average number of 98. This year, too we put in all efforts to ensure a great show. 73 Artists from 5 nations (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & South Africa) participated in COLOURS OF LIFE.
