create their works at the lawns of Government Museum and Art Gallery and the workshop is open to the public who can view the artists at work and also interact with them “The effort is to get art students interested in the field and a larger audience to watch the process of creation and understand the nuances of the art’’ says Bheem Malhotra chairperson of the Akademi For the artists the symposium is a chance to work together explore the medium and form new ideas from the environment around and also discuss the many challenges sculptors face in regards to diminishing indoor and outdoor spaces for display high cost of sculptural material transportation and the fact that art galleries today have been unable to propagate and support this important Indian medium “Such platforms are important for the promotion of art and also give us a chance to understand each other’s work as well as build bridges’’ reflect Vipul Kumar and Tutu Pattnaik both here for the symposium The event

NewsWritten by Vishal Menon | New Delhi | Updated: October 13 2016 10:39 am Baroda’s Irfan Pathan attends a practice session at Palam ahead of the team’s match against Mumbai (Source: Express Photo by Amit Mehra) Top News ‘Mentoring’ is a term Irfan Pathan detests “It’s something you do after retirement At present I have no such plans” he says The Baroda captain’s assertion is candid and it gives an insight into his mindset ahead of the upcoming Ranji season Having taken over the reins from Ambati Rayudu who moved to Vidarbha this season the all-rounder’s new avatar has evoked much curiosity Seated next to the cafeteria at the Air Force Sports Complex in Palam Irfan looks relaxed ahead of his side’s second Ranji Trophy encounter against champions Mumbai The 31-year-old sees himself as the leader of the unit and not necessarily a mentor — something he claims is exaggerated Having led his side in the Ranji opener against Gujarat last week Irfan says he is relishing the prospect of captaining his Ranji side but admits it’s a challenge”This is a challenge I am looking forward to There is fun in leading this team I have an aim and I want my team to achieve that at the end of the Ranji season There is an added responsibility that keeps me going” he says He insists his captaincy template will be distinct but goes on to add that having played under captains such as Sourav Ganguly Rahul Dravid Anil Kumble and MS Dhoni he has had the opportunity to observe their styles “Obviously you learn after watching them on the field As a youngster coming into the Indian team I was no different They are all very different human beings with their own styles The most important aspect was to take all the good things from these guys and then incorporate your own distinct style to it” He says his experiences will help his captaincy stint “My education stopped after Class X I was selected for U-15 and did not have the time to finish my schooling My experiences under these players are all part of my education” he adds More importantly being the captain of Baroda gives him an opportunity to give something back to his team in terms of sharing his knowledge and experiences with his younger team-mates No lack of motivation Going forward getting a chance to captain Baroda has only spurred Pathan on If anything it has helped him quell talk about his motivation and his impending future in the game “Motivation has never been an issue for me If that was indeed the case I would not have been here in Palam captaining Baroda I have been through many experiences in my professional life I can use my experiences to help and motivate my players I don’t want to impose myself on players” he points out Irfan last played an international fixture — a T20 game against South Africa — four years ago Since then he has not been on the national radar He reckons a good performance this season will go a long way in helping push his case in front of the national selectors Having battled injuries which have taken a toll on his body and his bowling Irfan managed to find his verve in the Syed Mushtaq Trophy last season where he finished as the highest wicket-taker He credits his turnaround to the stints with TA Sekhar who has been closely monitoring his progress as a bowler In fact Pathan has even sent him videos of his bowling before the start of the season “I’m very much a rhythm bowler I’m close to achieving perfection in my bowling this season Obviously my stint with Sekhar sir only helped He has always gone out of the way to help me Staying more close to my self rather than the loading going too much away from my left ear and shoulder Those were subtle changes which helped me improve my line and length It even helped me get more zip from the pitch” he explains Ahead of their upcoming duel against Mumbai Baroda have their task cut out They will be without the services of fast bowler Munaf Patel who is indisposed and Krunal Pandya who is nursing an injury Krunal’s brother Hardik who has joined the national side for the ODI series against New Zealand too will not be in the starting line-up on Thursday The Baroda captain however is the least perturbed He believes his squad has enough ammunition to challenge the Ranji champions “We have a couple of fresh faces who have the talent to make it big in first-class cricket If they can put their heads down and focus they can make it big this season” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News Yet, download Indian Express App ?” she said, India needs to lend some
