The Great Artists of Punjab
The Great Artists of Punjab
Description

Foreword:

Potrayals of cultural heritage of Punjab by its great artists in different forms and genres is their singular contribution to the richness not only of the Punjabi life and culture but also to that of the whole country.

Amrita Shergil, a par excellent painter 'looked much like a painting herself.' K.L. Saigal is that legendary singer, who whatever sang, became music. The Powerful, rich, melodious voice of Bade Gulam Ali Khan, who was an accredited exponent of Patiala Gharana, toughed the hearts of even the insensitive.

Sobha Singh, who was called by his admirers as the "Artist with a divine touch" devoted his whole life to "Growing more good" Through the medium of painting.

Prithviraj Kappor was triple genius- a great film actor, a father figure in theatre and upholder of great Indian social values. His plays and films were 'massive sagas', of life full of rituals, music, ceremonies songs, sword fights, comic situations and soul-stirring tragic moments.

Ragi Samund Singh appointed as Hazoori Ragi of Nankana Sahib, which was a rare honour, will always be known for religious depth, emotion, felling and spiritual import of the Shabad, apart from rhythmic singing in the classical mould. He was in true sense "Behre-Mausique" (The ocean of music)

To Satish Gujral, the great artist, everything that has creative possibilities in exciting, Every idea is an independent being. The idea is supreme and demands a garment, a dress. To him, greatness does not lie in 'painting beautiful things, but painting things beautifully.'

Gurcharan Sing, the master potter, has earned the name for popularizing the finest art of clay, the most ancient and noble of crafts. He would say : clay has a feeling. It is the earth, made of the same elements as we. We are more in harmony with clay than machine.

Thakur Singh, a painter of international repute, is known for fine craftsmanship and mastery in drawing. His Paintings were so attractive that Lord Irwin and Lord Linlithgo had these in their collections. He captured human figures, natural scenery, and historical moments with absolute precision.

Balraj Sahni was great actor, writer, patriot, and a visionary with great passion for Punjabi culture, art, language and literature. He was devotion, honesty and truth personified: deeply committed in Indian mannerisms and emotional identification. He had a sense of deep social commitment of a revolutionary. His house in Bombay was an attractive centre of Panjabi Culture.

Testimonials

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
