I consider myself to be blessed to get this opportunity to be associated with this cause and the inmates and also feel satisfied to be able to add some value to the lives of few people and to the society as a whole in a very little way that I can. pHREEDOM4EVER always try to associate with such enrichment programs for a better tomorrow.” pHREEDOM4EVER’s major endeavor is the upliftment of rural talents to urban audience wherein the rural artists of various genres showcase their expertise to the urban audience during festive periods and special events.There will be an opportunity where the paintings can also be purchased by the visiting guests. Noted elocutionist and performing artist Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee shall be facilitating the walk through with his intrinsic style to fascinate the present guests.As put in by the DG & IG, Correctional Center, West Bengal, Arun Kumar Gupta, “Culture therapy has been proved to be one of the most successful methodology of correction through the creative vehicle of art, music, and dance. Art in prison has been a common platform of Correctional Services, Government of West Bengal and Flight to Harmony Foundation to chisel out the hidden artist among the inmates.” The exhibition will start at 2 pm on the said date and an inaugural function is being arranged at 4:45 pm in the presence of Minister, Bratya Basu, Mayor In Council, Debashish Kumar, Pramita Mallick, Subhaprasanna, Sudeshna Roy, Abhijit Guha, Jogen Chowdhury, Rita Bhimani, Nandita Pal Chowdhury, Eleena Banik, Nayantara Pal Chowdhury, Chaitali Dasgupta, Sudarshan Chakravorty, Arindam Ganguly to name a few.

Inspired by Shree Chitta Dey, an eminent artist and sculptor and the man behind Flight to Harmony Foundation who has been an inspiration to millions with his dreams and ability to make dreams possible is the main figure behind this initiative. It is his introspective and his deep association with the lives of the inmates, that this exhibition is able to see the daylight.
