Hosting G-20 as said by Hon. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is a “matter of pride” for Indians. The theme of India’s presidency is ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ which is inspired by वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम.

Uttarakhand is elevated to receive an opportunity to host three events of G-20 Summit. After the successful first meet in the month of March at Ramnagar, Uttrakhand is all set to prepare for the next two meetings in May and June at Narendra Nagar. Tireless efforts from top to bottom goes apt with the popular saying that a winning effort begins with preparation.

The beautiful village Oni in Rishikesh is spotted for the May meet. It is such a delightful sight that how a simple village of around 110 families is being transformed within a month’s time. The team of 13 artists are working day and night to beautify the place. Under the direction of Uttam Rawat; twelve other artists: Mukul Badoni, Gopal Kumar,Narendra, Arvind Kohli, Shreya Uniyal, Kaamini Kaparvan, Usha, Pallavi, Uttam, Vikash, Sanjeet, and Harishankar are crafting magic all around the village, through their painting brushes. The artists belong to different places of Uttarakhand. From professional painters to students of fine arts to a simple house painter whom in layman’s language, we call a putaee wala (पुताई वाला), all are collectively engaged to complete the G-20 mission.

The magical fairy tale, crafted by these artists surely leaves a deep impression in the minds of spectators. These beautiful artworks exhibit the amazing culture of Uttarakhand. States’ traditional dresses, ornaments, rural lifestyle, and traditional houses are painted on walls. The walls of houses in the village are painted with ritualistic folk art aipan.

Wish a great success to everyone for the next meet of G20 from May, 25 to 27!
