Batting For Green-RCB
RCB in collaboration with A Rocha India and Earthen Symphony up cycle to conserve the environment.
The waste that is generated at the stadium during each match is mind boggling!
The process of cleaning and segregating this waste after each match is quite a process which all happens behind the scenes and the people who are generating this waste are happily unaware of what they have contributed to!
In order to create awareness among the people regarding the 3 R’s – Reduce Reuse and Recycle it was decided to use the waste generated at the stadium to convey an important message of conservation.
This art installation has been constructed totally with the waste generated at the stadium with the aim of communicating visually the concept of go green and conservation.
The artwork was built in stages after each match using the waste generated post every match.
The art installation aims to show visually through its magnitude the amount of waste that gets generated in just a 4-5 hour match.
A 26ft cricket bat will still be small to hold only the empty water bottles collected at the stadium! The gigantic size is to impress upon the people about the enormity of the junk generated and intended to lead to introspection on how much of it could be from their contribution?
The aim of the plants and flowers is to give people food for thought about how out of the box thinking can bring solutions to what we deem impossible. If we reduce, reuse and recycle there is hope through which our environment can be conserved.
The idea is to make each individual realize how critical it is to think and go green at a personal level for conservation.
Through this art installation we intend to induce a thought process for a greener and cleaner environment.
As RCB has been passionately advocating, “go green” and has been taking several initiatives on this front what better way to influence their fans also into the concept than to build something visually communicative in their home grounds?

We are in the business of jewellery and other collectibles, and are known to have an eye for the finer things in life. We have in our collection several works of art such as a Padamsee, a Vaikuntam, and several Gujrals and Yusuf Arakals.
Our latest acquisition is a work of art from MadhuChandrika — a brilliant piece of work at the entrance of our office. Its an artwork that speaks for itself! The colours are shaded just right, and the maroon and gold blend perfectly to create an arresting piece.
MadhuChandrika can truly make your wall speak. She is someone we would be happy to recommend and be associated with.

MadhuChandrika has created outstanding murals at the University of Petroleum & Energy Studies (UPES), Dehradun. Apart from the subtle message, the murals also give vivid brightness to the buildings, enhancing the ambiance of the campus. The quality of material and workmanship is outstanding.
Madhu has displayed thorough professionalism, completed the work in stipulated time and more importantly, to our satisfaction. We are highly appreciative of her enthusiasm and positive attitude.
UPES strongly endorses Madhu’s ingenuity and artistic caliber.

We wanted an element, a piece of art that can light up and energize our space to create the right ambiance. Madhu came up with a concept where she would use our wedding date as a percentage to make a customised CMYK colour chart, creating an excellent piece of art.
It is extremely nice and gives us lots of energy and colour — brightening up the entire space.
