  • Scape and Scope - 9th February, 2016

    Scape and Scope


    Date:     9th February, 2016, Tuesday
    Time:    7.00 pm
    Venue:  Jehangir Art Gallery, 161-B, Mahatama Gandhi Road, Kala Ghoda, Near Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Fort, Mumbai.

    The Ladies’ Wing of IMC is partnering with TAO Art Gallery to celebrate the 16th anniversary of TAO Art Gallery.

    The show, ‘The Scape and Scope’ is an attempt to reiterate the importance of the cityscape in shaping our perspectives and personalities. The relationship between a city and its inhabitants is an interdependent one because not only does the city impact the lives of its inhabitants but the inhabitants also give the city the irreplaceable character it has. Bombay for example, is made up of a varying group of people with multi-ethnicities, multi-beliefs and multi-desires. These differences are what come together to make a city with a spirited, intricate and unpredictable character.

    More than 30 famous artists will display and give a glimpse into their perspective of the scape and scope of a place. It could be any place: a small town close to their hearts or a big city that has widened their horizons. It is time that we appreciate and acknowledge the role that landscapes play in making us who we are.

    Adore the artistic landscapes with some cheese and wine to dine.

  • Book Launch - “Monks are from Meditating Monkeys” by Dr. G. K. Pillai - 12th, January, 2016

    Book Launch - “Monks are from Meditating Monkeys” by Dr. G. K. Pillai


    Date:     12th January, 2016, Tuesday
    Time:    3.00 pm
    Venue:  Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate, Mumbai.


    IMC Ladies Wing invites you for the book launch of “Monks are from Meditating Monkeys” by famous author Dr. G. K. Pillai.

    This extraordinary book unveils the scientific source of true spirituality. A vision of reality emerges when the brain is in the grip of “near- death” frenzy. The dominant ego declines and consciousness shifts to the right side of the brain. True mystics like Ramana Maharshi meditated up on the dazzling vision reached “nirvana”, the culmination of spiritual quest. The good men, who sell yoga, meditation, and salvation, are self-centered mimics with inflated self and greed. The facts now revealed by brain scans might debunk the divine comedy of fake monks misleading the masses?

    Dr. Pillai has written many notable books on diverse topics. He has academic credentials in Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, and Public Finance. He retired after serving 35 years in the Indian Revenue Service, as the Chief Commissioner. For his contributions to Public Finance, he was empaneled in the International Roster of candidates by the United Nations in June, 1989 and International Monetary Fund in 1992.

    Join us to unveil this extra ordinary book with Dr. Pillai

    Everybody wants to have a smile they feel good about… No matter their age, gender, profession, or circumstance

The National Oral Health Programme notes that 95% of adults in India suffer from gum disease and 50% of our citizens don't use a toothbrush. The program also finds that 70% of children under the age of 15 have dental cavities.

    Dr. Sandesh Mayekar, the famous dentist will address the ladies’ wing members about the basic oral health care and will help you understand how a good, beautiful healthy smile raises the face value and the confidence of a person. Dr. Mayekar will explain how jaw relation and teeth COULD BE the prime reason for headache, neck pain, shoulder pain etc.

    Dr. Sandesh Mayekar heads a multi-specialty dental practice in Craniofacial Aesthetics with special attention to TMD, Orofacial Pain, Implantology and Aesthetics in Dentistry in Mumbai, India. Renowned for Designer Smiles, he has won many a laurels for the country at the Miss World and Miss Universe Beauty pageants 20 years. For him, creating aesthetically pleasing smiles is a passion.
