|Nature Artist:Magunta Dayakar|
He is an artist. I know him.
One day he called me and said that he is going to hold an exhibition in a popular gallery.
I congratulated him.
After two days the news came out in a daily paper about his exhibition.
I read the news.
The chief delivered a good speech about how art has to be respected, encouraged. In that news column few celebrities photos were there. The chief guest who inaugurated the exhibition, his photo was there. One of the artist’s paintings also appeared in the background. But artist photo did not appear in that news.
I thought, ‘ The one who exhibited his works is not important, It is … who attended! ‘
