Chennai, 31st August 2012: Continuing his passion of photography, Dr Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri awardee, India’s most-renowned homeopath, Founder and Chairman of Dr Batra’s Positive Health Clinic, today showcased at his 8th annual charity photo exhibition, yet another notable collection of photographs titled ‘Magic Moments’. The photographs will also be exhibited in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune
The proceeds of the event will be donated to Mercy Home (Home for the Aged), Chennai, that cares for and supports old people who are sick and have been deserted by their families without distinction of caste, creed or religion, and are provided with food, clothing, shelter and care.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Mukesh Batra said, “As a Doctor, I have seen so much pain and sufferings of my patients that I wanted to keep my sensitivity alive through some form or the other. For me, photography celebrates the equilibrium of the body and mind. Photography is an artistic expression that can capture beautiful moments when words are not sufficient to describe their true splendor. My biggest inspiration is my cause – a good cause. This allows me to collect funds for the underprivileged. This year the proceeds will be donated to Mercy Home (Home for the Aged), Chennai. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to help in alleviating some suffering of the disadvantaged.”
This year the exhibition will showcase the diverse landscape of the island of Maui, the second- largest of the Hawaiian Islands and the 17th largest island in the United States. This exhibition will present its heavenly beaches, its scenic natural wonders and the breathtaking views of the volcanic cones.
Works from Dr Batra’s previous exhibitions have adorned the Raj Bhavan in Mumbai, the Citigold Lounges at the Citibank offices of Mumbai and Delhi, and the corporate office of Bajaj as well as other prestigious offices and also homes.
The photographs from the collection ‘Magic Moments’ will also be available for sale at all Dr Batra’s clinics in Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad. The prices begin from Rs.2000/- onwards.
