The pillar was perfect for the build up of a horizon – all the way from green grass to blue skies. But the fact that one can go round a pillar lent to our imagination an interesting challenge. What goes round and round? Our very colorful answer turned out to be – “The carousel”! It’s one of those fun experiences – you put a coin in it, it takes you up and down, round and round and makes you feel all happy at the end of it. And what joy it brings to children! There were other elements a kite and a festoon that brought to the pillar the sense of a merry fair – an escapade and a moment of being a child again!
Under the staircase, in keeping with the theme, we had the larger than life expressions of some of the elements represented on the pillar as well – a dandelion (inspired by the KLP logo), clouds and the sun, a butterfly and colorful kites!
While they fast disappear in the rest of this city, we decided to paint ourselves a line of trees – in different sizes and shapes all the way leading upto the pillar. Half a dozen little ones from a nearby Anganwadi graciously left us thumb-prints for the fall colors of the foliage. And that’s what will make these trees special for us! Note there’s an owl along the way – one of our colleagues insisted on having one – to negate the myth and superstition around this beautiful creature – and in the true spirit of co-existing with nature as splendid as it is!
A true collaborative effort, it had so many of our colleagues standing funnily sometimes, squatting, kneeling and in other unusual yogic stances to bring ourselves some happy times and reminder of who the benefactors of all our work are really!“
