Shekhar De’s Art School for the Village Children in India

Shekhar De has returned to his village to begin an art school for the children. He is selling his own art work to build the school and to provide art materials for the students. In this time of world suffering, here is a man, giving of himself, with HOPE and VISION for the future of those often forgotten or ignored. Here is YOUR chance to do something positive and forget about our own sorrows! If you can, buy a painting of Shekhar De’s to help his art school! Even if you want to donate $5 towards his school, it will make a world of difference to these children. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose!

UPDATE: August 4,2021.

The struggles are many for this open-air Village school since the arrival of Covid. Anything you can do to support this little world of art that brings hope and joy to these village children would be appreciated by Shekhar De and his students.

Help: Stuck

I received many likes on my last posting. (It does beg the question if anyone actually read it. )Only no one responded to my QUESTION and/or plea for help!

How do I get out of EDIT Mode in this site that I am attempting to set up for my artist friend and teacher of young children in India?

This is the site:

Here is screen shot of the PROBLEM I am having… it says “Edit” immediately AFTERNOON the title. This means anyone can edit it!! I don’t know to get out of that Mode! Help!


I have met this great friend, who has now become my brother, from Krishnanagar, India. He has begun an art school for the village children with this hope: “I only want to serve the coming generations to be taught with good intentions for building up a good humanity….if we can establish an art school for the ignored generations I hope human characters will change for the future.”

In this time of global upheaval, a worldwide pandemic, and Mother Earth in such pain, I find Shekhar De’s optimistic attitude for the children in his village and his dream of an art school amazing , inspirational and hopeful!

Please help me improve his WordPress site! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so very much, dear WordPress friends!

I have tried to help him by setting up a blog on WordPress. Unfortunately, I have become a bit rusty in keeping up with how WordPress functions. And I am at an impasse! And the general question & forum guide isn’t any help and I do not seem able to find a Live Person in WordPress Company to help. Is there such a person?

If you go to his site, you will see that I am stuck in “Edit” mode! His WordPress site is:

This is WHERE I need YOUR HELP ! Can someone tell me how to get out of Edit Mode? Please help me help Shekhar De!

While you visit his site, check out his art and if you so inclined or able, consider purchasing his personal art which he is selling so that he can build an art school for the village children and buy their art supplies for them. He wants the forgotten children of our world to have a chance at life! Thank you!

His WordPress site is:

Thank you in bengali language is DHANYABAD or in our bengali letters ‘ধন্যবাদ’. Shekhar De joins me in saying “Dhanyabad” for your help!

Some of Shekhar De’s art:

Listening to the Silence

The universe encompasses me

In this emerald blanket of silence

As the daffodils dance delightfully in the sun

The pear blossoms begging their growth

Nature is opening up to the fresh air

Now is our moment to begin anew

Not to “return to normal” a life that had been so askew

Now is our chance to reduce the “air” pollution

Now is our chance to be kind to each other

Now is the time to erase the concept of race and look into the eyes of each other and see we are ALL ONE… we are ALL human beings…we are NOT red, yellow, brown, black, white—-we are living souls who need each other!
