An appeal for FACT by Shri Francois Gautier

published on January 18, 2009

you know, apart from my journalistic work, I have a Foundation,
FACT,that does exhibitions and films on Human Right issues,
particularly those that affect Hindus, as well as painting exhibitions,
showing the greatness of Hindu spirituality and culture.


the moment, we are mounting a painting exhibition on Devi Ahilya
Bhai,the warrior queen of Indore. We are also recording on film
testimonies of the survivors of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, we are
exhibiting in Pune “Shivaji a hero for Modern India” and we are going
to show all over Gujarat the exhibition on “Aurangzeb as he was
according to Moghol Records”.

we have decided to take some of our most important exhibitions (see
below) to UK, The US and Canada for raising awareness in these
countries about terrorism affecting India and its unique culture. I
will go myself to open these exhibitions as well as do a round of
conferences on the role of the Media in terrorism.


For all these noble endeavours, we need your financial help.

Contributions can be made in the name of FACT and mailed to François Gautier, Auromodel, Auroville, Tamil Nadu, (viaPondichery) 605101, India. We will send you if you wish a receipt and a tax exemption certificate.


Warm regards


François Gautier/ Trustee FACT
