80-yr-old Warli painter to remind Rahul of his grandmother’s promise
Padmashree awardee Jivya Mhase is yet to receive land promised to him by Indira Gandhi in 1976

In what could become a highlight of AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's Maharashtra visit, legendary Warli painter, Padmashree awardee Jivya Soma Mashe will ask the young leader to execute former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's 1976 order of granting three and a half acre land to an artist who had had impressed her.

Rahul Gandhi is slated to meet 80-year-old Jivya in Palghar in Thane at a felicitation function organised by the minister of state for tribal development, Rajendra Gavit this Saturday, January 29.

The meeting carries tremendous political and cultural significance as Gandhi intends to address tribal development issues, and Mashe is a living example of a tribal artist for whom honours and acclaim have not translated into empowerment of any kind.

Government apathy and general lack of accountability dog him at every juncture, including his failed efforts to ask the state government to execute already passed orders for release of three and a half acres in his name.

Jivya Mashe is credited with popularization of a traditional art among the younger Warli artists. He has held exhibitions in France, Germany and US

Mashe holds the documentary evidence of orders given by former PM Indira Gandhi and the then Chief Minister Shankarrao Chavan granting him ownership of a piece of land close to his current house in Gabhinpada at Ganjad (near Dahanu).

In one of his earliest exposures to New Delhi's art circles, Mashe was introduced to Indira Gandhi in 1976. She paid rich compliments to his pictorial compositions and gave specific orders to grant him land as a resource to empower the emerging artist.

As Mashe followed up the decision, he realised that the land already belonged to another adivasi. "Evicting a fellow tribal to get that piece! That was the last thing I wanted.

But I am sure some other small plot can be given and am trying to get it from Maharashtra government for the last 35 years," Mashe told Mumbai Mirror, as he was readying up for a series of social dos in Thane district a natural fallout of the news of his winning the Padmashree.

On January 29, he intends to tell Rahul Gandhi to look into the matter. "I am 80 years old now and quite tired. I want to start a primary school in Gabhinpada. If I get the promised plot, Warli children will get a school. Formal education will lead to more empowered artists.

Better late than never, I am going to tell Rahul," he added. He said though he never received formal schooling, he nurses the ambition of raising well-groomed school kids in his neighbourhood.

Excerpts from an interview:

What are your feelings after getting Padmashree? Will you travel from Dahanu to Delhi for the ceremony?

I am honored and am certainly going to be in Delhi for the award. I will talk to President Pratibhatai Patil and tell her about the bad roads in my district. Something should be done to improve basic communication.

You have internationalised Warli art. But do you see Warli artists reaping rich returns?

Payments are ad hoc in nature. In my own life, I have sold only three paintings for Rs One lakh each. Therefore, big money has not come to the Warlis, though the intricate life-like designs, particularly the man-environment themes in our paintings have been appreciated here and abroad.

Coca Cola India recently made good use of Warli paintings in their ads. How do you think art connoisseurs, gallery owners, exhibition managers and other market forces can be made to give the due to the average Warli painter?

As a community, we have no bargaining power or good communication skills. Traditional Warli artists can emerge as a strong cultural force only if the government gives them some institutional backing. A centralised institution or academy is the need so that the younger generation treats it as a primary source of income. I wish it happens in my lifetime.

Your take on the fake Warli market that has flourished of late. There are also Warli art classes in metros.

I have no objection to any art. But these should not be sold as Warli artefacts.

लाखो घरांतील ड्रॉईंग रुमच्या भिंती ज्या वारली चित्रसंस्कृतीने सजल्या त्या चित्रकलेचे जनक जिव्या सोमा मशे यांचा नुकताच पद्मश्री पुरस्काराने सन्मान झाला.

ठाणे जिल्ह्याच्या आदिवासी पाड्यांवरील ही कला सातासमुदापार पोहचविण्यात मशे यांचा सिंहाचा वाटा आहे. डहाणू तालुक्यात गंजाड गावातल्या कलमी या आदिवासी पाड्यात १३ मार्च, १९३१ रोजी जिव्या सोमा मशे यांचा जन्म झाला. रुढी-परंपरांचा पगडा असलेल्या आणि प्रचंड मागासलेल्या आदिवासी समाजात ते वाढले. मात्र, त्याच आदिवासींच्या वारली परंपरेने मशे यांचे आयुष्य पालटले. ठाणे जिल्ह्याच्या आदिवासी पाड्यावरील बायका लग्नसमारंभात आपल्या घराच्या भिंतींवर वारली चित्रं काढायच्या.

तारप्याभोवती फेर धरून होणारा नाच, लग्नाचा मांडव, लग्नाचा चौक अशा असंख्य चित्रांचे मशे यांना लहानपणापासूनच आकर्षण वाटायचे. त्यामुळेच वारली चित्रं फक्त सुवासिनींनीच काढायची ही आदिवासींची प्रथा वयाच्या १३व्या वषीर् मशे यांनी मोडली. त्यानंतर वारली चित्रकलेच्या दुनियेत मशे यांनी सुरू केलेली मुशाफिरी गेली ६६ वषेर् अव्याहतपणे सुरू आहे. भारतातील आदिवासी कला जगासमोर याव्यात आणि त्यांच्या कलात्मक वस्तूंना बाजारपेठ मिळावी यासाठी १९७५ साली तत्कालीन पंतप्रधान इंदिरा गांधी यांनी देशभरात एक शोध मोहीम राबविली होती. त्या मोहिमेतील भास्कर कुलकर्णी यांना जिव्या सोमा मशे हा अस्सल हिरा सापडला आणि मशे यांच्यासह वारली चित्र संस्कृतीचेही नशीब पालटले.

मशे आपली कला सादर करण्यासाठी दिल्लीत पोहचले. पारंपरिक वारली चित्रांच्या सोबत त्यांनी प्राणी, पक्षी, फुलांनाही वारली चित्रकलेच्या साच्यात मोठ्या खुबीने बसविले. या कलेने प्रभावित झाल्यानंतर मशे यांचा १९७६ साली राष्ट्रपती पुरस्काराने सन्मान झाला. त्यानंतर देशातल्या अनेक कला दालनांमध्ये मशे यांच्या चित्रांची प्रदर्शने भरू लागली. राज्य सरकारच्या मदतीने वारली चित्रकलेच्या प्रसारासाठी त्यांनी अनेक वर्कशॉप घेतली. आपल्या परिसरातील शेकडो अदिवासी मुलांना वारली कला शिकवून त्यांना स्वत:च्या पायावर उभे केले. मशेंची दोन मुलेही या कलेत पारंगत असून त्यापैकी एक मुलगा वर्षातले तीन महिने जपानच्या म्युझियममध्येच कार्यरत असतो.

रशिया, इटली, जर्मनी, जपान, चीन, इंग्लंड, बेल्जियम अशा अनेक देशांनी मशे यांना आपली कलाकुसर दाखविण्यासाठी निमंत्रित केले. बेल्जियमच्या राणीने म्हशे यांना १७ लाख रुपयांची बक्षिसी दिली. जपानच्या मिथिला म्युझियमचे डायरेक्टर होसेगवा यांच्या हस्ते गौरव झाला. परदेशात असंख्य मानसन्मान मिळत असताना भारत सरकारने मात्र त्यांची भलतीच उपेक्षा केली आहे. १९७६ साली तत्कालीन राष्ट्रपती फक्रूद्दिन अली यांनी मशे यांना साडे तीन एकरची जमीन पुरस्कार स्वरुपात देण्याची घोषणा केली होती. मात्र, ३४ वषेर् सरकारी कार्यालयांचे उंबरठे झिजवल्यानंतरही ८० वर्षांच्या या जगद्विख्यात कलाकाराच्या पदरात ही जमीन पडलेली नाही.
