alt“Creative arts are Gods precious gifts to humanity. They portray God’s sublime beauty and love”, he added.

Bishop Henry D’Souza was inaugurating the 20-day residential summer camp for children in Indian Classical and Folk Dances, Karnatic Vocal singing, Tabla Instrument, Western Keyboard instrumental and drawing and painting.

“God is the giver of all good gifts. Of the many gifts, dance, music and fine arts foster creativity, refresh human imagination and bring entertainment to human life”, added Bishop.

“Dance, music and fine arts can be excellent tools for interaction between different communities, thus promoting national integration”, affirmed Bishop D’Souza.

“Creative art forms can be powerful tools for communicating Good News, bringing meaning and enlightenment to modern human life burdened with daily drudgery”, added Bishop.

108 children from Bellary, Koppal and Raichur districts are participating in the summer programme held at the newly started centre for fine arts – Pratibhalaya (house of talents).

Fr. Thomas Santhosh, Diocesan Secretary for Communications and Public Relarions is the Director of the summer programme for children.
