Shree Yashlaxmi Arrt ( SYLARRT) is an institution in Pune founded by Manjushree Vasant Oak around 1995, with an aim to present educative and entertaining programs of high calibre in the fields of fine arts and culture, without any compromise on quality. At the same time, on its own, the institution takes care to adhere to and fulfill its social responsibilities. Till date, the institution has presented a good number of such programs in the field of Classical music, Marathi and Hindi Music, Ghazal, Instrumental music etc.
‘Sylarrt’ is a movement, dedicated to the revival of good, old songs from the Golden Era of Hindi films, as well as of Classical music, Marathi-Hindi Music, Ghazal, Instrumental music etc. It is a group of enthusiasts, dedicated to make an humble attempt to counter the degradation of musical values in contemporary cinema and stage performances. To this effect, it is our mission to bring to the people, not only the great composers of the Golden Era of films, but also arrangers and musicians, whose contribution has been no less. Essentially, our programs are ‘theme-based’. We have had the privilege of inviting some of the most celebrated musicians from the industry, who have actually played the original score. Our singers too are professionals, most of them performing through various medias.
Deeply motivated by a spirit of community service, ‘Sylarrt’ donates part of the proceeds of its shows to social causes. We have contributed Rs. 72,000/- to Manavya, a Pune-based NGO working for children born with
HIV and Rs. 11,000/- to the Bihar Relief Fund anchored by Sakal, Pune. Another noble deed was to felicitate Smt. Mubarak Begum, a renowned playback singer of one time, with cash reward of Rs. 51,000/-.
‘Sylarrt’ has created short films by namely; “ Shastrokta Ashtavinayak, Dakshin Kashi Harihareshwar, Diveaagarche Vaibhav” and many more.
Last few years ‘Sylarrt’ has been working on water resource Management issues staging a musical show for emphasizing the value of Water conservation and the importance of its effective management. The objective is to create awareness about water conservation albeit in an interesting, entertaining way. It is a Theme-based show which would not only fascinate the audience but also make them aware that EVERY DROP OF WATER IS PRECIOUS.
