What do you see in the above picture/painting? What message can you read from the above picture? What message the painter of this painting might have thought to give through this painting?
Well, you might have your own denotations according to your own decoding/understanding system. Even I had that. In fact, I was wondering why the silhouette of a polar bear has a blue sky with dark blue clouds dotted with white stars? A polar bear generally reflects the polar reason that is mostly white. isn't it? Then…??
My Son is in 9th STD. There was a drawing and painting competition in his class. All the students had painted wonderful pictures. My son collected a few of them from his friends and brought home and put them on the wall. Then he asked me which one is good and what do I read from the above painting. I after telling which one I liked most, I asked what's this painting is about.
He said," Mamma, here, my friend Manav has been represented as a polar bear, sad and done, as we have left him in the polar reason. Bahut Masti Karta hai" and he giggled.
I laughed. I knew how these just-into-teens children do these days to tease their friends. After a while, he stopped and told me "Ohkay, Mazak Kar Raha tha Mamma, now let me tell you what's it?"
I looked at him wearing a question mark on my face.
"It’s the Effect Of GLOBAL WARMING Mamma. Can't you see the polar bear is sad as all the ice in polar reason has been melted? Only a few flurries of snow like structure will remain in the air and no more ice will remain in glacial reason in a few years from now if the global warming will keep increasing this rate as now. Isn't it? How can a polar bear survive without glacial surfaces? Won't it get the treat of extinct of its species? That's why it is sad….did you get it?"
I was looking at him, jaw dropped, lost. Seriously, the imagination of these kids can really dig a well in the sky too.
What do you say!!
