The paintings have been specially created for us by Bangalore’s well known artist, Chandranath Acharya. The daunting task of selecting 12 artistes from a pantheon of greats was made possible by defining our focus very early on. We then narrowed our theme to great artistes and their instruments, with equal representation to both Hindustani and Karnataka traditions. We narrowed the filter further: to maestros of the past, no more with us, who are credited with raising their art and their instrum
Our calendar is a tribute to painting and music, two sublime arts that stir the soul in different ways. The relationship between music and painting has long been a subject of serious discourse among philosophers and scientists, artists and mathematicians, psychologists and composers... In India, both music and painting have been deeply rooted in philosophy and religion. Legend has it that Brahma taught songs to the sage Narada, who passed it on to humans. Historically, 'sung recitation' was part
Our calendar brings to you a selection of breathtaking buildings which have achieved that status. Needless to say, there were many buildings that we wanted to feature; we were limited by the fact that there are only twelve months in a year.
Collecting, preserving, displaying and interpreting art is in itself an art. And a very sophisticated and complex one at that. In this calendar, we pay tribute to several of these 'Temples of the Muses' and the room for discovery and enlightenment that they enable. Our selection, limited by constraints of space and format, includes some of the museums rated as the best in the world. Each museum featured in the following pages is accompanied by a very brief description.
In this calendar we take you to a few WTC buildings around the world and to our own WTC Bangalore. We also give you a quick glipmse of WTC Bangalore's immediate setting—the Brigade Gateway enclave, designed to meet our vision of: “...creating places that enrich how people work, play, heal, worship, discover, learn and travel—places that imporve how people live”.
Cricket is one of the sports covered in this calendar. As for the other eleven: they include a selection of both team and individual sports; games played on boards, tables, courts, fields and pools, in India and abroad.
Of the twelve cities we selected, four seem to be uncontested entries: New York, London, Paris and Tokyo. The other eight may or may not win the same quick and unanimous approval. We realise you might have favourites that you miss seeing on these pages. So do we…especially Indian cities, the absence of which is discussed at the end of the calendar. So without further ado, we warmly invite you to travel through twelve remarkable cities. Bon voyage.
With the creation of Brigade Hospitality Services Pvt. Ltd, our
sphere of activities has expanded to include serviced apartments
and corporate residences; senior citizens' residences; clubs; hotels
and, most recently, holiday resorts. The theme of this calendar
revolves around one of these new worlds...
Our purposefully meandering journey continues this year with a theme close to many hearts. Within this calendar is an anthology of thirteen classic wildlife photographs, featuring twelve different animals. Each photograph gives you a glimpse of everyday happenings in the animal's life and natural habitat. You'll see a peacock caught in flight and a contemplative tahr brooding against a mountain landscape; an angry elephant threatening a surprised gaur and a gentle chital doe suckling her fawn...
The theme of this is year's calendar is yet another form of art: Wildlife photography. And from the wide, wonderful canvas of wildlife, we have chosen birds. Specifically, those found in and around Bangalore City. The following page come from the portfolios of four outstanding wildlife photographers of Karnataka.
This year's calendar features a series of black-and-white sketches by Kamalesh, a well-known artist from Karnataka. The subject is heritage sites of Bangalore. It is worth noting that there are over 200 heritage sites in Bangalore and the tersm 'heritage' includes lakes, parks, hills, groves, buildings and structures.
Brigade group showcases the delicate beauty of the flowers that adorn Bangalore's many flowering trees. All the trees featured in this calendar are delightfully familiar sights across the city. At Brigade Group, we have always believed in maintaining a sustainable balance between what is and what has to be. Which is why we factor the preservation of trees into the design of our projects. And plant and nurture trees in and around our project sites whenever possible.
After paintings, photographs, and sculptures, we directed our focus towards the building walls. A plain wall is canvas for the myriad palette of human imagination. Brigade projects have played host to an unique alchemy where the confluence of inspiration and creativity resulted in walls being crafted into murals by twelve talented hands. Renowned during the Renaissance period, murals were the end result of the artist’s efforts to blend perspective and architecture to create illusory effects.
Photographer Clare Arni’s creative eye has explored and discovered stunningly graphic forms in our immediate surroundings—some of Brigade Group’s own buildings. We hope you will enjoy this unusual perspective as much as we have.
The calendar features the work of C. Rajagopal, a pictorialist of world renown. Rajagopal is a photographer of original talent who has established his own standard in international photography; this is a rare and refreshing phenomenon in the context of an Indian artist practising in a modern medium. Rajagopal has in fact created his own genre known as the “line of light” photography. In this calendar, photographs by Rajagopal portray the placid and pastoral Bangalore of the ‘40s and ‘50s
The sculptors are done by six renowned sculptors of Karnataka. The sculptures are made of stone, wood and bronze respectively. Three of the sculptures are traditional and their artistic heritage dates back several centuries. The other three belong to contemporary school: one is abstract form, indefinable, but imbued with deep sensitivity; the second conveys a powerful social message; while the third is endearingly simple and whimsical. Each evokes its own dialogue with the viewer.
The paintings are done by six well-known artists of Karnataka. They portray a range of expressions, styles and techniques—from simple lines to the near-abstract, from seemingly childlike to complex rendering. Each artist has his own grammar and idiom of workmanship. And each painting evokes its own dialogue with the viewer.
"At Brigade School, our son has been blessed to have some very approachable and warm teachers all these years that to this day, learning has not been a chore or burden for him. We appreciate it that on occasions when his marks dip, the teachers have nudged him to do better, gently reminding him and us, that he has the potential to do better, without undue pressure."
Ashok Thampy and Asha Thampy (Parents of Joshua, Std Fifth)
"We have recently returned from the US and our younger daughter's first experience of formal schooling is at The Brigade School. She enjoys going to school and returns home with a smile on her face and lots of stories about her teacher and her classmates. We are very pleased with all the care and the attention offered by her teachers to make her feel happy in school."
Jayashree Krishnan (Mother of Maya Krishnan, LKG)
"It has been almost 18 months since we moved from the US to India. One of our main concerns was to find a nice school to help our only daughter Apoorva to transition into a good school that she will cherish to grow up learning with. We are particularly happy to confess that as parents, we take pride to partner with The Brigade School and confirm that it is certainly helping by being Apoorva's second home for learning."
Arathi and Murali (Parents of Apoorva Krishnan, class VII)
"Our son has been a member of the Brigade family for two years and we are very happy to say that the principal and the faculty at the school pay individual attention to identify and develop the potential of the child. We have seen our son grow as an all-rounder, a complete and confident person ready to face the real life challenges."
Ratan Hastu, (Father of Kshitij Hastu, Class X)
"My children joined The Brigade School this year. My daughter is in Class XI and my son is in VI. I am delighted with the way this school really listens to the young students.
It is a school that encourages a student to be responsible for their own learning, and helps plan out their studies and liaise with parents and tutors. Great communication and support is available at this school, easy access via email or phone to tutors and principal.
I like the praise system of points and the simple system that tells you what is not acceptable behaviour. Regular term reports and honour cards that allow for good attitude, attendance and work. Then the chance to discuss with the tutor any problems or issues regarding the students. All in all it is a well balanced school that thrives on the student being treated as an individual and allowed to grow and being treated as a young adult. Well done Brigade School, my children love studying in Brigade!"
