Art and a cause come together with JagaChitra

Living with Multiple Sclerosis, we face a lot of issues - not just everyday, but every second!” 

“I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009 and this news was very hard to digest. With my wife and my daughters' support, I've accepted it and trying to win over it. Walking difficulties have made me wheelchair dependent, my speech is difficult to understand and it's a challenge to even have a bath.”

“I've had Multiple Sclerosis for the past 50 years and the biggest tip I can share about managing this, is keeping the mind busy. We need to stay positive and in my case, I focus on what I love the most - spending time with children!”

These are just a few of the things that persons with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) say when they are asked about the life-changing disease that they have.

What does it mean to have MS? It’s an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. It can hit anyone, mostly between the ages of 20-40 and there's currently no cure. An MS patient is faced with several attacks and slow deterioration of functions. The Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI) helps persons with MS through physiotherapy sessions, scans and medicines, among other things.

Can anything be done to help persons with MS? Each year, the city-based photography group, Thank God it’s Saturday (TGiS), conducts an exhibition, where all proceeds from the sales go to MSSI to help alleviate this disease. Last year, TGiS was able to generate Rs 7 lakhs with a sale of 100 frames.The amount was donated to the MSSI Bangalore Chapter for the welfare and treatment of its patients. For 2017, TGiS is again proud to be associated with MSSI and hopes to raise more funds this year. 

You can help support the cause. When you attend the photography exhibition – called JagaChitra – and purchase any of the photographs or other products, all proceeds will go to MSSI. This is considered a donation so you will also receive tax rebates under 80G.  The framed photographs are printed on special archival paper – quality that lasts for more than 40 years. These photographs were taken by TGiS members from around the world, showcasing scenic locales, culture, wildlife, nature, and people. Apart from India, visitors to the exhibition will see images from Bruges, the Swiss Alps, Arizona, Krabi Islands, London, Cambodia, Angkor and more.

Exhibition details
With Honeycomb as printing partners and Vikram Hospital, Guhring and Bosch as sponsors, the members of TGiS extend a warm welcome to you to visit this exhibition.

Dates of exhibition: 2nd – 6th June, 2017
Location: Chitrakala Parishath, Bengaluru
Timings: 10 am – 7 pm
