OUR SUPPORTERS

Our heartfelt thanks for being with us We are extremely grateful to all our Mentors cum Supporters, Sponsors, Volunteers, Interns, members, who believed in what we do and had placed their faith in our efforts and have always been there by our side, guiding and supporting us in all possible ways. Without them, without our beautiful team of like-minded, socially responsible and committed individuals and institutions, it would have been impossible for us to extend ourselves and strive to build compassionate global citizens and communities.

We feel so happy that now we have a vibrant platform (our website), where we can express our deep and sincere gratitude to all our Mentors, Supporters, Volunteers, Interns or let’s say all our Prithvi Mitra’s or (Prithvi’s friends) for sharing their concern, time, services, expertize, experience, resources, money, selflessly to help us build better surroundings and to live our Vision. Thanks, is too small a word to show our heartfelt gratitude and love for them for being with us, in this Journey and for making it more beautiful and strong by holding our hands, in sunshine and rain.

Mr. O P Sharma

We feel immensely fortunate & honoured to have met OP Sharma ji, our amazing Green Hero or Tarumitr three years back.
Mr. Sharma is an inspiration to all including us.

Hence we honoured him with Taru Mitr Award last year during 5th June 2019, World Environment Day Celebrations by us in collaboration with UP Pollution Control Board.

Mr. O P Sharma is an ardent Tree Lover, Nurtured & Saviour.

His dedication, contribution & consistent hard efforts to increase the green cover in Lucknow city is praiseworthy.

He has not just planted but followed up and ensured that majority of the trees planted by him ,as an individual or with us, in association with Prithvi Innovations have survived.

So far he has raised two mini forests of more than 2000 mixed saplings of neem, Peepal,Kanji,Paakad ,Jamun etc near Gomti River Bank, Mankameshwar Aarti Sthal.

He helps us in identifying suitable sites for planting and in montoring the trees planted by us at these sites..like at BegumHazrat mahel Park,
Neebu Park,
Butler Park in Jan 2020.

Without any financial support from any one,Sharma ji carries on this plantation work with full enthusiasm and sincerity and Prithvi Innovations will continue to be with him in this green journey together.

Sketch Cartoonist Shri Ganesh Dey Chandra

गणेश डे ( स्केच कार्टूनिस्ट )
गणेश डे (66 वर्ष) जो एक अच्छे स्केच आर्टिस्ट और कार्टूनिस्ट हैं। आज उम्र के इस पड़ाव में भी निरंतर काम कर रहे हैं. विपरीत परिस्थितियों में भी इन्होंने कभी हार नहीं मानी. कभी निराश भी नहीं हुए. एक लंबे समय से संघर्ष और विभिन्न पड़ाव से गुजरते रहे और आज भी यह संघर्ष जारी है.
यामिनी रॉय के स्थान बाँकुरा के रहने वाले गणेश डे अपनी मंजिल की तलाश में विभिन्न स्थानो से होते हुए लखनऊ आये.
 इनके हाथ से निकले हुए एक एक रेखाएं समाज की दशा और दिशा दोनों को चुनौती देती है. चित्रों के माध्यम से समाज के दशाओं को उकेरते और जागरूकता पैदा करते हैं.
समाज में कला और कलाकारों के प्रति जो भाव होने चाहिए वो नहीं होने से कभी कभी  निराश भी हो जाते हैं पर फिर अपने स्केचेज से अपने मन के भाव कागज पर उतारने के व्यस्त हो जाते हैं ।
उनका मानना है कि आज के समय मे जो डिजिटल कार्य हो रहे हैं कहीं न कहीं कला पर गहरा असर पड़ा है. हम जैसे कलाकार जो इन संसाधनों से वंचित होकर अपना जीवन भी गुजारना मुश्किल हो गया है.
 गणेश डे को हम लोग ‘दादा’ कहते है।  दादा की जिंदगी उन कलाकारों की सी है जिन्हें कभी कोई सरकारी मदद नही मिली।  दादा आज भी कुछ स्वयंसेवी संस्थाओं के साथ काम कर कुछ संसाधन जुटायते है।
आज भी समसामयिक घटनाओ पर अपने कार्टून के लिए अपनी अभिव्यक्ति का प्रदर्शन करते है। लड़कियों की समाज मे हालत पर उनके कार्टून देखिये।
दादा जैसे कलाकार समाज और सरकार दोनो के लिए धरोहर है। पर दिखावटी चमक में दादा और उनकी कला की कद्र कंही खो सी गई है। यह किसी भी देश और समाज के लिए अच्छे संकेत नही है। दादा आज भी नई पीढ़ी और बच्चो को मुफ्त कार्टून कला सीखने को तैयार है। जिससे यह कला कभी खत्म ना हो। सरकार ना सही अगर समाज ही दादा जैसे कलाकारों की मदद करे तो ऐसी लुप्त होती कलाओं को संरक्षित किया जा सकता है।
