Inspired by the dolls, the Darpana team created a dalit story in Gujurati language to be acted out with puppets -similar to the dolls- they made.  The puppet play was enacted at regular intervals during the exhibitions in Ahmedabad and Vadodara.  This helped visitors – children, students and others -  to understand better the concept behind the creation of dolls.





Seen here, with Mallika Sarabhai, are children belonging to an organisation that fulfilled the last wishes of dying children. These children are afflicted with various fatal illnesses such as Leukemia, HIV, Cancer etc.

Penciljammers visit Visthar, April 2011

Below are seen a group of artists and designers, both amateur and professional, who are part of a group called Pencil Jam ( www.penciljammers.com ). They visited the exhibition at Visthar, and were inspired to sketch, draw and paint the dolls on display. All of them were touched by the sheer beauty, artistry and intricate details of the dolls and the poignant stories that each doll visually narrated. The Penciljammers, being visual artists themselves, could really appreciate and relate to the visual storytelling techniques of these sacred dolls.
