The exhibition is all about butterflies. “Butterflies impart a sense of freedom in us as they unfold and emerge from its chrysalis before flying away into liberty. The metamorphosis that it undergoes in its short life span depicts the toughness of life's existence in nature itself. Is it possible for any form of life to exist by its own? Never, it needs support from the environment and the ecosystem to complete its life cycle. The evolution of butterfly has been simultaneous to flowering plants ever since the cretaceous period, thus signifies the importance of 'existential thoughts'. Human interference has become a threat to Planet earth, adversely effecting its eco balance which needs urgent attention before it is too late. It is time for us to rethink and undo our wrong imprints on this blue marble and remind ourselves that life is all about coexistence,” say the organisers..
