Madras Day triggers many processes.
Take the example of Chennai Weekend Artists.
Since many of its members use their Sunday mornings, heading to city spots to sketch and draw and water color, all their best works made for a great collection though some works may be tad amateur.
So when the CWA curated a show of their works at Lalit Kala Akademi and had a good crowd at they launch and the daily events are well crafted, this showed how a concept like Madras Day can throw up very positive developments.
Can we make a collection of city pictures and photos and lead these to books and collections?
Can we have more city writing that can go into a collection that a publisher can put out?
Can we have illustrated books for kids or short stories in Tamil?
We can. We need creative souls who passionately drive such thoughts.
