Creating the World’s Largest Letter

World’s Largest Love Letter, Bangalore

I don’t know how we did it, but we did. Less than a month after John Silliphant and Mark Peters arrived in Bangalore, less than two weeks after Mark and I got involved, and with the inexhaustible efforts of Maria Durana, we held an amazingly successful event at M. Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore on January 16 – the creation of the “World’s Largest Letter”. Close to 500 children joined Bangalore-based artist John Devaraj and the children of Born Free Art School in painting a letter to the children of Pakistan from the children of India.

Dear children of Pakistan, Let’s join hearts in friendship. Together we can make a better world. The children of India.

Mark has the full story of the letter-writing campaign on his blog. I’ll just post some pictures, as requested, here.
