Story of Colour Transparent Character by GIFT
The Art of Design and their learning are not easy but at GIFT it is simplified by the virtue of God Almighty for every individual learner.
GIFT is full of storytelling about design with a co-relation of history relevant subjects along with technology whether it be small scale, large scale or “Laghu Udyog” or “kuttir Udhyog”. Every learning of GIFT can very well gel in with the one who was apparently our Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhiji, whose style of education, ideology, philosophy , Ashram style living and learning, Gandhi’s India, idea, entrepreneurship more than job and dream, I intend to carry forward since the beginning.

No doubt transparent in any relation or work includes Accounting, Management or any other professions etc is highly appreciated by masses and is good for mind to keep a calm and peaceful healthy living and working in a human society. Transparency brings in correlation of two and two together as like in humans for a better working that makes the environment more joyful with togetherness in nature which is a good sign of both side growths. One must see how God has created the paradise of earth through transparency pouring the human mind with versatile Knowledge and practice in day to day’s life. 
When we talk about the transparent character of colour we implement that character into our daily lives from nature cresting as road to success for all.

It is a very difficult task to make the Course Abstract for Colour which is to be learnt in a span of a few hours. A lot of thinking needs to be brought into consideration to create a learning of the subject with its methods and objectives like an unimaginable, enhanced intermission of the colour and light that glows as ever for a successful path in all field of life. By the grace of God what so ever we do good and more good for our soul, which is God’s spirits in us, we should know how to be good, and if we are not as above then God is not concerned because he has given us hearing power, sight with intelligence to be humans that is why we are different and more meaningful than all creatures made by God.
As we all know that without stories one cannot grow and learn and it is only the understanding of this “story” that helps a person to lead a better life in future.

It is also a well known fact that every human has millions of stories to tell about themselves but expressing it through a quote or writing is not an easy task for every individual, leaving most part of the story incomplete and they have a sad demise where no one knows the “beginning” and “The End” of their stories.

Then how one can teach this sort of complete learning in the classroom about the transparent character of colour to the fresh learner in such a short duration?
For this as above mention thoughts fuming coming up with a reason for this I have traveled in the memory of my mind for thousands of miles to recall all the glances registered since long. It is quite surprising to me as I have so many stories about colours to make others understand how to practice the colour and colour transparency, surface ornamentation and any such character in textile, or Fashion Designing.

For e.g. If you are stationed on the apex of the tallest hill and look down towards the proceedings of the landscapes covered with sheets of fresh morning dew and hazel light one can find tremendous activities present which give an essence to the ethos of Natura, which is effusively elicited to its enigma, of transparency which is created by God Almighty. This view gives birth to ideas to utilize that hue of versatile colours in the purest of forms like muddy marshes, greenery or stones, all in different depths showing a transparent character of an elusive mind. This when brought about in ornamentation with a flat brush on a white paper for further development of fabric prints and paper prints which is used for gift wrapping gives the effect like the earth’s paradise and glory reflecting directly by the paintings unlike the sorcerer’s illusions. With this exercise one can see the changing colour in a versatile increasing depth which is visually unimaginable in many minds.
All this is understood better when painted practically and not when written in text. Normally, our eyes are not that sensitive to observe and catch any colour, hues and its character that is why innocently as a human we are not able to notice the sight of colour which we are observing. That is why one should consider through minute and detailed observation the objects of certain colour character, and here one may find to their surprise that there are many colours that get blended and here we salute to God Almighty for his creation of nature.
For example, in rocks you can not only see grey, silver or a dark charcoal, but also versatile growing colour glowing like the violet, crimson , scarlet and lavender in winter and in summer something else. The above colours apart from the natural ones seem to be hazy in nature and the natural are comparatively more dominant. Hence we can infer that the colours that are not so obvious in the rocks are an understanding which is the main reason that the object looks pleasing to the eyes in spite of being coarse, hard and rough in its nature. This understanding when transferred into transparency also helps to be unbiased against certain colours of our liking making us more open to the wide range of colors present till today.
Another story of colour which I see through the marine life in the down water is that in spite of the light not going to the deepest part of the oceans; life prevails which is so difficult to replicate today. This creation of God is a great example to understand that a simple medium of water through its properties plays the part of a prism and minerals create the translucence in it giving us a soft picture in our mind registering it for us to analyze. The understanding of how a squid changes colors in seconds and how the fish are present in refreshing colours gives us a better understanding of how we can create a masterpiece using this quality of merging of colours in paintings.

For example, the movement of vegetation and creature gives tremendous overlapping of unimaginable glitters of color and this when used as a colour palette gives rise to a more meaningful painting through the flat brush with an analytical approach behind it. Here in nature we find the crystal blues and greens difficult to be converted for our understanding especially through text; hence a colour palette is extremely essential to give our work a start. When the above mentioned colours absorb the bright red, blue, yellow etc, they turn to their respective shades making it eye pleasing and these when penned down and paint accordingly in transparency help us to understand the knowledge of purity of color.
Another example is while passing through the valleys, during a full moon starry night, surrounded with grown up trees, green fields, as well as the uphill and downhill widening path with breeze whistling away into the air, we sometimes hear the wild birds and animal noises from all directions. In the midst of this our ear simply cannot locate the exact direction of the source of the noise, making our eyes get rolled up in fear, and at this time we see the surrounding colors in nature full of mischief with a translucent effect. This shows that the color changes with the state of mind and when this is recalled and implemented through empirical methods creating picture plates in our mind it is going to be like colour sorcery like the magicians playing the flute creating colours like violet, silver, grey, foggy blue and stone hues. This state of mind reduces the distance from your glance and these when taken as a colour palette, and painted would give an extreme feeling of a sober haunted paradise and this again cannot be explained or expressed that well by talking and text. One needs to paint in order to understand this particular character of the above stories to understand them more effectively.

Another example is that the span between dawn and twilight has a very dominant colour of the atmosphere which is why the flying creatures and the objects seen appear to be not so strong in colour that even though they have their own beauty of colour losing its identity. This immediately relates to the story of the big fish eating the small fish or the fact that in front of the strong colour the weak colour loses its identity. Simply there is no darkness in the atmosphere during dawn and twilight that we can observe with our naked eyes.
Mostly at that time you will find a prism effect in the atmosphere in colours where violet being the strongest and maroon showing tremendous depth, proceeds to give a translucent effect which is actually colour transparent in character. 

The above understanding shows that as if some magician is weaving colour in a transparent effect where we can notice every single color with immense depth changing its hues in such a way that many shades are seen.

As artist are without any technical gadgets, because if they use the photography media where the camera cannot be your eyes; it is simply because the camera lens sees everything and your eyes are very particular with your focused mind. So again try to paint the color picture with a flat brush for better understanding in an ornamental style of nature in geometry with controlled generosity.

In spite of so many stories being told and endless work done, till date the knowledge is still incomplete in reference to colour. Here we realize and recognize the God’s created earth’s paradise which has innumerable colours in every zone and every objects on this earth.
For example the botanical, zoological, minerals, precious stones, metals sand, mud, rocks, marine life, atmosphere, fire etc. have infinite and nameless colours. Here the mathematical reasoning of humans may have failed till today but the discovery of the human nature certainly can answer a lot of questions to find the name subjectively. When the colours get blended in it and cling to each other interlacing in a way that become two and two and better in pairs but still you will not find colors in total. Every research from the above subject certainly will bring some light to the human understanding but no one can challenge the creator of this wonderful paradise ever.
One should carry on claiming own research or discoveries mentioning your exploration, scientifically or empirical methods even though it may seem beyond human reach similar to the time when an atom of hydrogen blasts, the impact is so high that it is very difficult to take an account of the colour formed during the blast. Who wants to see a colorless life? Sorry! This earthly paradise is not a place for them to survive in.
Many researchers face readers, palmists, astrologers, astronauts promised and talked blah blah…..about colour and human nature and for this myself Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique is a great example for my own growth in the field of colour.
My story which has become history is quite unusual than the other common people which was surprisingly unknown to me while I was pursuing higher education at National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad. (NID)

My first month of second semester in NID when I was learning sketching, colour composition and colour painting as fine Arts. I simply painted the roses according to my understanding without any consultation and guidance. The very next day when I had displayed my work on the soft board for guidance, my colleagues and teacher along with the entire class were laughing their heart out which was quite surprising to me. I thought that since I was a fresh learner without any background in this art I must have received such a reaction, due to my foolish work.
Later I realized that I had painted the roses bluish pink and this was how I understood colour and my journey to understand it began from that instance of my life. Back home when I spoke to my elder brother Mr. Nasir.M.Rafique who at his time was the youngest principal of IHM Ahmedabad, laughed at me when I told him what had happened at NID. He suggested that we would consult a doctor to check my eyes with understanding of my brain pattern and then I realized that I could not see green and red and saw these colours as something else.
That made me completely blind to the above two colours, and this episode took a mysterious turn in my life where my knowledge started growing infinitely in the field of colour transparency and its character.
I became a magician and sorcerer of colour because the way I talk about colour others may not be able. So my empirical methods of learning have made me stronger and I have registered the actual colours and the colours that appear to me respectively for my in depth understanding of colour. 
After a few years when I was working in Kolkata (Rishra-West Bengal) for the development of linen fabric, being the senior most person I selected 7 people as technicians and supervisors who were fresher’s. They certainly went through medical tests and checkups and brain mapping and understanding of colours in the industry where the doctor found out that some were colour blind like me.
Even after me being at a high authority and all the tests that these people went through the organization raised the objective and had their strong doubts about these people that they would not be fit to work for their job profile due to the colour blindness problem.
I remarked that they were present not to design but would be taking care of the weaving with colours. Whatever colour shade they would be given they would have to simply match that and rectify it to the right shade and the color blindness can never change two images in it in one mind of the same colour. That means that the given colour is green and he had to match it accordingly and even if he sees the colour as brown he would still see the right shade to be matched with the sample that he would be given. For this I was highly appreciated by the organization for my good gesture towards the human society.

I have crossed almost 35 years in the field of Textile and Apparel Designing and during this tenure I worked with Arvind Mills in Ahmedabad, Jayashree Textiles Kolkata, Raymond’s in Thane, Gujarat Spinner and various small and large industries and also taught as a visiting and full time faculty at NID for 14 years and since 1995 teaching and heading GIFT.
This journey of experience was enough to develop the expertise and course abstract for fresh learners to name with colour. That is why at GIFT, the story of colour transparent character in my life is seen and we highly succeed in what work we can do in one hour, making the fresh learner not believes their own work in such a short duration. Nobody can believe that with fresh learners for your understanding see our picture plates and try to practice your own accordingly, you are also able to do that because any organization would believe in transparency and developing bridges from one place to another for the designers community just as I believe in it.
No one needs to believe the above mentioned as this is my faith and belief but it is the truth being proved at least since 15 years at NGO GIFT (Gandhi Institute of Fashion and Textile, Ahmedabad) where the fresh learners are live examples to experience the above truth where in a few hours they become master of colours where the understanding and knowledge keeps on increasing day by day. They also become good at Surface ornamentation with versatile forms such as flowers and flowery, fruits, motifs, bale, booties, leaves, grass, trunk, thorns, geometrical forms, and their abstract texture for meaningful synchronization for a shape and look and this is a complete learning in just 25 to 35 hours.
For your reference the actual colour picture plates is kept for your understanding and the practice can be done globally.
Thanks to God Almighty for my inspiration in faith to the masses along with my students in what GIFT teaches and believes.

“Colour Soul and Conclusions of Colour Blindness”

Colour blindness for designer is a God’s Gift. But according to my knowledge, I have not seen and read about any colour blind designer or artist telling the stories about his distinguished methods and objectives in his practice how he/she drives his/her own colour paradise in his/her work and why he/she is successful. My vigorous search in NID library, Art Book centre and Museum in available Art Book Picture Plates of such designers and artists work, along with detail text, as above said mention, I has not found as needed by my research.

It may be known that colour blind designers and artists must not have felt the need to share their expertise openly about their lack of inbuilt character of being colour blind. But here I cannot write with my expertise and understanding while going through picture plates of their painted work. They must have sort of fear about the society and appropriate industry people how they are going to react or may be their extra gift by virtue of birth from God, which they don’t want to share, but their selfish act not to share their extra gift in others benefits, not making them growing.

Colour blindness means you are not fully colour blind. That changes the colour images into other colour images. Mostly if you see in the desert people are green and partially red blind. That means actually in place of green colour, they see beige, light brown etc. That means green gets replaced in vision to other colours and because of that the subjects becomes very important for me to do research, because this is unusual and they have totally different vision compared to common people. That means any one’s colour blindness in the human mind will affect the total colour of the universe. That means they can see any perfect colour hues but certainly their way of seeing the colour hue is different than common people.

That certainly shows that I have practically tested the vision of colours as much more powerful than a common person and their visualization, composition while playing with colours are much more good in creating designs and painting in harmonious rendered symphony which is very settled and outstanding and their soberness is classic. For example in reference to the masses especially for textile industry, I have developed summer collections of 1992 of Raymond worsted Suitings for men’s wear. There I have used more than 7 colours in warp and in weft not less than two and created totally new colours of suitings for domestic and overseas market which has a pinch of colour effect as well as a glow of light on every surface of the fabric which I have designed and till today nobody could copy that style of designing. People still remember that, that development has never been created by any designer because most of them who are in the field of designing are not colorblind.

Ageing makes a person human and perfect. That is why as a teacher I am sharing my expertise to the global designers and textile industries which can be also useful for the navy and air force too.

“For example: Being colour blind, the green appears more bright in nature towards brown colour and when I talk about aqua and marine green it has tremendous depth with a glow of blue and Aquamarine shades in it which is not possible to see for those who are not colour blind”.

If I compare myself to others, my colour blind for red is going to be very, verily different in colour palette than others. For example, red, blood red, tomato red, tan red, Indian red, rose red, maroon, magenta, violet, lilac, lavender, coffee, black, navy blue are very precious to me than any other common designers. In that example, if I am talking about maroon colour I can see in it hues of crimson, scarlet and more red splitting towards vermillion and orange. I can easily read the percentage of such colours and distinguish in separate portions their identity which helps me specially in blending different coloured yarns of the same or different tone from different colour families in woven designing and due to this I can merge various colours and I can lift any particular colour on the surface as ornamentation decoration to make a fabric much richer and accepted by the masses likings.

The above said mention understanding and knowledge due to my colour blindness helps the industry grow financially, economically as well as achieve fame. For example if you sandwich parrot green in between the rust in small quantity the parrot green decor will get converted into reddish rust (Orange shade), this, I can see without practice, but for others, they need to weave the fabric and see the result for a better understanding.
In men’s wear, designers were very hesitant to use the feminine colour as decor but due to my colour blindness, I have used mostly such colours because they have the tendency to lose their identification very easily to other colours. That is why for ages the designers were using only grey decorations in tweed. In processing through milling these very bright colours lose their identity and become softer, but who can make people understand that colour blindness is a “gift from God and not a curse” to the designers.

For example, a colour blind person doesn’t need to understand the chemistry of any individual colour segment and their dying percentage because in separation of that they can read with naked eyes for above mentioned. And this is the strongest character in mind working machine which is much faster than any man made machine, due to the gift of god Almighty to the colour blind designers.
Due to the above said mention understanding the colour blind person easily registers the colour images in mind with the name like others and when it is blended, the two different understandings in his utility and that practice creates unimaginable refined work, which is not only classic, is beyond classic.

A colour blind person will never instantly use colours with fear because they have in depth knowledge due to the struggle in comparison to others colour mind that is the reason they are simply genius in the field of understanding of Colour.

I can write so many stories about colour blindness but every colour blind person is not as lucky as me to do the same. But according to my above text and articulation with examples, one can try with empirical methods to develop further ideas where at some instances I have mentioned above to feel the truth. Believe me and test, you will also believe that colour blindness is not a curse but it is God’s blessings.

Here, I am sharing my trueness, but that may differ from medical science and others.

“Pen Ornamentation”

 “Ornamental Pen and Ink is the key to Designer’s mental block.”

“Pen and ink is not a simple media for designer, certainly it is a sharp tool for designers ornamental mind opening”.

As mentioned above, the ornamental mind of designer should not be eraser friendly; it should be like the memories of human mind. And when that attitude is activated, it certainly will remove all the carelessness and lazy attitude. This makes the mind of a designer completely focused towards scribbling with pen and ink in versatile minute forms and textures. These forms and textures may seem meaningless in the initial stage but later on with keen observation while working, it gives definite meaning, which harmoniously flows towards symphonic ally and frame the picture. Once it is done it looks as if someone has rendered magically spine music into design where the pen is singing and the spread ink is tapping the chord. No doubt this can be felt by the masses along with designer’s soul.  

“There is no need to be surprised as the innocence of nature plays a major role in its effortless, amazing creation which is endless going towards infinity, then how one can be bored in life with its accountability. For example, God has created paradise earth which is not possible by any human habitat to account forever, where every transparent discovery of human shows fresh creation of God and how one can bring it on paper every creation. Even when thousands and thousands of designers get united, they will not be able to cover the God’s created wonderful paradise of earth.  Think when all trees of Earth were PENS [kalam] and the OCEAN were INK with seven oceans behind it to add to its supply, yet would not the WORDS of GOD be exhausted in writing for GOD is exalted in power, full of wisdom, then work as above mentioned scribbling in the praise of God’s bounteous paradise glory then also the ink and “Kalam” will never get exhausted and work will remain incomplete, that shows and makes us understand, why to worry or fear. Do as much as possible and enjoy life”.

The above mentioned is a mirror and understanding, which shows the human habits to carry forward the same work in better style and technique from one habitat era to another era.

As we all know that, we cannot tabulate love and affection in the same style, we cannot frame the creativity, it flows with its own innocence universally and as we bow down with knowledge and praise that, we all grow much better.

Another example, to collect all the gold, rubies and pearls of the earth and make a jewel even then there is no comparison to God’s created earth paradise. That shows whatever and whenever, anywhere on this earth if somebody tries to name such activities as mentioned above it is his or hers mind interpretation, explanation or justification for claiming they found, made or created any things, which is not the truth, because we human only finds the way of doing things through discovery from Gods creation as a creature.

With the above understanding one can live thousand years without getting bored and workless. That is, which I feel, is a designer’s soul that never dies.

It was a very difficult task for me to introduce such above mentioned foundation course for fresh learners at GIFT NGO, which really took me almost 10 years to understand and evaluate how it is important actually, which is the key to learner’s mind.

For example, to understand much better about the above subject one need to do minute and random scribbling in single style, in selected shapes with composition skills to complete the subject. One can add clothing to the subject through ornamental scribbling and in the same way we can understand gist and gesture like the story of Zen, and with that designer can walk for their entire life.

Why the above subject is most important in a designer’s life today? Normally and simply they get confused and lost with internet surfing and flipping the pages in the library and don’t find sufficient material which they can use in their professional practice, that is why GIFT’s (Gandhi Institute Fashion and Textile) common foundation course learning for fresh learners helps open their mental blocks in few hours. And that we would like to share with transparency for the benefit of global designers’ community and Design Institutes through various sources. That is why we have launched our website (www.gift-india.com), and added the beneficial materials on Face book, Google Blogs and many more social media. Simply GIFT is an NGO, that is why we always work in favour of universal learners, which can be access from blogger profile Khalid Ameer Rafique or gift Gandhi institute ahmedabad or institute of fashion and textile anywhere in the world.

How GIFT students are utilizing the above learning in their profession is normally unknown to the Global Design Institutes. For Example the above mentioned pen and ink scribbling can be mixed with versatile and different media and certainly blend like soluble in anything or in any liquid without losing its identity.

GIFT students’ uses and utilizes the above learning in versatile subjects. For Example, in Fashion; Fashion Illustration; Fashion Accessories; Body Make ups, etc., Textile, Minute Detailing for print Design as well as woven design and for Jewellery Design pouring like precious stones in any metal, which reflects nature blooming very near and reachable to the humans to admire the beauty and restrain the glances of  its Godly effect like, two bodies of water flowing and meeting together without a barrier which cannot be transgressed and both identity remains the same, then how can one deny the truth of the Lord.

The results of GIFT Fresh Students learning is displayed for your glance for everybody’s growth by the virtue of God Almighty.

Note: The above text shows that a child becomes genius, which means, one needs to learn how to frame the above learning in definite context with their professional practice to grow.

 Emboss and Embossing Emend:

GIFT Common Foundation Course Exercise - Embossing a surface, which breaks the learner’s mental blocks and emend emblem idioms as a stress buster.

Imagine a world without Emboss – this is as good as life without heart and soul. This was the initial idea of Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique to find with the help of research and accordingly develop all Foundation Common Design Course Abstract with a cosmic notion of life in it and all GIFT NGO learners should thus pour in their heart and soul while learning.

To understand its value within a minute in its technical depth, with its fullness and wonderful gesture of emboss such as, dimension, volume, projection, light and shadow, proceedings, raised, bold, obstruction, sense, navigation, uneven, rough, unevenly smooth, protection, shelter, valleys, depth, height, gentle and pious, bosom, relief, emotion, feeling, relation, cherish, holding, along with all movable creatures of God with various moods and living.
The above understanding makes a learner to easily implement in his or her learning and incorporating for developing concept in any thing maybe with a baby pencil, pen or any different medium etc, as needed for conceptual moods and gestures that makes a fresh learner strong and powerful in his or her composition of life.

Since childhood every learner has a habit to write, rewrite, overwrite or erase and again write the same which is good initially but later on destroys the confidence of the learner partially. GIFT‘s Emboss Exercise is thus the best research by Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique, which make learner free from above mention habits.

The above rewriting process that takes place is mostly while touching a surface but one cannot do the same as in the case of Emboss because while pouring epoxy on the surface through various types of nozzle containers or thick injections with an open point immediately on touching the surface gets distorted. This means that in the above tools the point must be at least .5-.75cm higher than the surface which is the means of controlled skills by the learner of embossing. Hence this shows that there is a complete absence of the need to rewrite or erase which is why Emboss is an exercise of GIFT helping to mould the fresh learner very easily to practice in the future professionally with confident.
For example: Before doing emboss exercise partially on paper or cloth or any surface they have learnt drawing as needed for Fashion and Textile Design.

Their understanding about nature, geometrical forms and their abstracts, while learning through scribbling and final drawing and shading, pen ornamentation etc helps them for perfect embossing for its appropriate purpose.

At GIFT embossing is taught for multiple purposes such as Fine Arts, Textile and Fashion Accessories. With different types of epoxies one can develop meaningful designs as needed by the course abstract for future professional practice as follows:
·        Especially Home Textile and Home Décor is highly successful and appreciated and for all over ornamental style and Fashion works like embroidery.
·        Another achievement of this exercise is that the learner can achieve speed with controlled accuracy, through effortless hand movement of powerful embossing strokes creating an instant composition without any hindrance and hesitation. The final finished product that develops the confidence and happiness making one forget the erasing habit making the GIFT learner overall stronger and positive towards their professional field.
·        Embossing Exercise of GIFT is an amazingly versatile reflection of a meaning that one cannot possibly find to be given in any dictionary. This shows that it is not possible for other Design Institutions to practice it in the way it needs to be done. GIFT being an NGO has always been open for all to share their expertise for the designer’s community globally.
·        The other example would be How to create color epoxies, for various textile and its uses in multiple styles through writing, scribbling, texturing, drawing of either nature, geometrical and abstract or anything of drawing and design having a fragile as well as a strong look overlapping in it. Thus helping in creating two or more surfaces for one concept, its transparency.
·        Like healing pads , bold, fragile, beautiful , maybe versatile, horizontal or directionless abstract, zigzag, geometrical, abstract or parallel, anything is possible for GIFT’s learner for making a concept on a controllable size such as cushion cover to bed spread never creating doubt in the learner’s mind about their confidence for the above.
·        How should one believe the above mentioned?
Simply travel through your mind in the Amazon jungle, through Kashmir and Switzerland hills to Andaman & Nicobar, Hawaii Island and on imagining this you will realize that it is difficult to deny the fact that everything said above is a beautiful paradise.
·        If you have an Ariel look of various cities such as New York, Bombay, London, Paris, and Tokyo and so on you can find without any denial attitude their projection in a systematic manner. That shows the world is beautiful with emboss and it means our heart and soul.
·        Due to the above understanding the world enjoys to watch united through various meanings a total universe with earth in it.
·        Such as watching Bay Watch or Bold and Beautiful from Lawrence Arabia to Titanic movies, sports events with its versatility where you can see the quick gesture in humans, small birds flying in a bunch, in the same manner, marine life which is full of dimension and still quite undiscovered today. These above examples are very close to the human mind in spite of which there is, they are still without much practice to imagine such things meaningfully in the world. This is why GIFT’s common learning in lesser time becomes best in learning due to continuous effort by learners as well as by GIFT faculties
·        At GIFT we never say we are the best but always are under the struggle to practice that is why through GIFT’s product to show, our designing skills and education we are earning immense respect and recognition globally.

 Every research from the above subject certainly will bring some light to the human understanding but no one can challenge the creator of this wonderful paradise ever.

One should carry on claiming own research or discoveries mentioning your exploration, scientifically or empirical methods even though it may seem beyond human reach similar to the time when an atom of hydrogen blasts, the impact is so high that it is very difficult to take an account of the colour formed during the blast. Who wants to see a colorless life? Sorry! This earthly paradise is not a place for them to survive in.

Many researchers face readers, palmists, astrologers, astronauts promised and talked blah blah…..about colour and human nature and for this myself Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique is a great example for my own growth in the field of colour.

My story which has become history is quite unusual than the other common people which was surprisingly unknown to me while I was pursuing higher education at National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad. (NID)

My first month of second semester in NID when I was learning sketching, colour composition and colour painting as fine Arts. I simply painted the roses according to my understanding without any consultation and guidance. The very next day when I had displayed my work on the soft board for guidance, my colleagues and teacher along with the entire class were laughing their heart out which was quite surprising to me. I thought that since I was a fresh learner without any background in this art I must have received such a reaction, due to my foolish work.
Later I realized that I had painted the roses bluish pink and this was how I understood colour and my journey to understand it began from that instance of my life. Back home when I spoke to my elder brother Mr. Nasir.M.Rafique who at his time was the youngest principal of IHM Ahmedabad, laughed at me when I told him what had happened at NID. He suggested that we would consult a doctor to check my eyes with understanding of my brain pattern and then I realized that I could not see green and red and saw these colours as something else.

That made me completely blind to the above two colours, and this episode took a mysterious turn in my life where my knowledge started growing infinitely in the field of colour transparency and its character.

I became a magician and sorcerer of colour because the way I talk about colour others may not be able. So my empirical methods of learning have made me stronger and I have registered the actual colours and the colours that appear to me respectively for my in depth understanding of colour. 
After a few years when I was working in Kolkata (Rishra-West Bengal) for the development of linen fabric, being the senior most person I selected 7 people as technicians and supervisors who were fresher’s. They certainly went through medical tests and checkups and brain mapping and understanding of colours in the industry where the doctor found out that some were colour blind like me.

Even after me being at a high authority and all the tests that these people went through the organization raised the objective and had their strong doubts about these people that they would not be fit to work for their job profile due to the colour blindness problem.

I remarked that they were present not to design but would be taking care of the weaving with colours. Whatever colour shade they would be given they would have to simply match that and rectify it to the right shade and the color blindness can never change two images in it in one mind of the same colour. That means that the given colour is green and he had to match it accordingly and even if he sees the colour as brown he would still see the right shade to be matched with the sample that he would be given. For this I was highly appreciated by the organization for my good gesture towards the human society.

I have crossed almost 35 years in the field of Textile and Apparel Designing and during this tenure I worked with Arvind Mills in Ahmedabad, Jayashree Textiles Kolkata, Raymond’s in Thane, Gujarat Spinner and various small and large industries and also taught as a visiting and full time faculty at NID for 14 years and since 1995 teaching and heading GIFT.

This journey of experience was enough to develop the expertise and course abstract for fresh learners to name with colour. That is why at GIFT, the story of colour transparent character in my life is seen and we highly succeed in what work we can do in one hour, making the fresh learner not believes their own work in such a short duration. Nobody can believe that with fresh learners for your understanding see our picture plates and try to practice your own accordingly, you are also able to do that because any organization would believe in transparency and developing bridges from one place to another for the designers community just as I believe in it.

No one needs to believe the above mentioned as this is my faith and belief but it is the truth being proved at least since 15 years at NGO GIFT (Gandhi Institute of Fashion and Textile, Ahmedabad) where the fresh learners are live examples to experience the above truth where in a few hours they become master of colours where the understanding and knowledge keeps on increasing day by day. They also become good at Surface ornamentation with versatile forms such as flowers and flowery, fruits, motifs, bale, booties, leaves, grass, trunk, thorns, geometrical forms, and their abstract texture for meaningful synchronization for a shape and look and this is a complete learning in just 25 to 35 hours.



Even after me being at a high authority and all the tests that these people went through the organization raised the objective and had their strong doubts about these people that they would not be fit to work for their job profile due to the colour blindness problem.

For your reference the actual colour picture plates is kept for your understanding and the practice can be done globally.
Thanks to God Almighty for my inspiration in faith to the masses along with my students in what GIFT teaches and believes.

 Stencil Designing and its utility:

It is a very easy subject for GIFT fresh learner because it has been taught at school level, under craft learning activities and in today’s time there are many manufacturing companies that provide art materials like stencil having instructions for its use that is used by school learners especially for their projects and decoration purposes, imposing through various colored and textured craft paper. But in reality this is not Stencil designing, it is just a tool used for bringing the above effect.

GIFT learners firstly learn to draw elements of the Earth paradise nature, in geometrical and abstract forms like creatures mask etc. Later they learn the conversion of these forms appropriately without losing its character and meaning in stencil which can be further made into a fine art as well as a textile print for its versatile utility such as wall hanging with mix and match medium, table tops and mats, bedspreads, curtains and saris etc. Due to GIFT’s systematic approach towards teaching it is very easy for GIFT learner to learn and practice the above.

Further, on conceiving ideas from the above learning one can utilize stencil for screen printing without exposing the screen technically and in many more ways which is made flexible at GIFT while learning through empirical methods.

The above art of stencil can be utilized more in shading to bring out depth and volume through utilization of air brush while painting through stencils. It is an amazing style that can be handled by GIFT learners very easily for making appliqué and patch work on textile for fresh learner. This is how the above learning certainly helps students in conceptualization for Fashion, Textile and Home Fashion Textile Interior Decor.

This course is added up with Fashion designing to make GIFT learner more advanced and equipped with additional knowledge so that it can be utilized in a versatile manner for making such fashionable Textile and Apparel prototypes etc.

 PENCIL DRAWING AND SHADING

Importance of pencil drawing and shading symphony in harmonious style for Fashion and Textile figurative weaves and print Illustrations.

History depicts and shows us from stone-age to modern era how well humans have built bridges through communication skills in versatile manners which can be seen historically from stone-age through scratching, scribbling unreadable text, but certainly brought meaningful graffiti to make others understand  their mind’s images and associations which later on became powerful tools for outreaching to the masses.

Since the “Kalam” (pen) and other tools like lead in pencil got invented, the baby pencil has been blowing the minds of humans. And no one has seen the end of the blowing of pencil and it goes till infinity along with versatile human society and developed minds.

Baby pencil is a very handy tool since childhood to everyone for scribbling text or any graffiti on paper or in surrounding. Due to the irresponsible act of elders “that” creation of childhood is normally not preserved to understand his or hers own mischievous act of baby pencil.

No doubt, baby pencil is an amazing tool with which a designer’s soul can fly effortlessly in any direction of creativity like the waves on water, sand dunes in deserts spreaded on green carpet and force of rain and lightning from the sky because baby pencil is everybody’s childhood friend.

Today, various numbers of lead pencils are available. Some are hard like carbon and others are soft like butter. What else the baby pencil need under its own shelter to blow appropriately as needed from a designer’s soul to form the needed concept.

The above said understanding reflects a wonderful bounteous effect which is unimaginable like the great sorcerer doing his act, the musician blowing the flute or hitting the chord of instruments and creating symphonious sound which pours like honey into people’s ears to make them feel like heaven. That shows baby pencil itself as a magician.

For Example, the soft lead of baby pencil with single stroke creates illusions, vision in versatile light and dark hues with immense power of depth and volume. Oh! Yes, what a baby pencil can do to control a designers’ soul, skills and vary in conceptualization as well as versatile meaningful prints to communicate while becoming history for the new generation.

One doesn’t need more time to command and control the baby pencil for scribbling, graffiti or what so ever in its utility like an artist. You just need a platform like GIFT where you will be able to do it as a fresh learner in few hours. That means baby pencil needs a master and the master needs a “Guru” as depicted in the “Golden Era of Ashram days”.

One need to have recalling power through empirical method of learning that makes the learner grow faster  and take command on the baby pencil to write the way they like in their act. Hence the human mind is fully rendered in versatile permutation and combination of millions and millions of forms which is actually a memorial jungle of human memory mixed up with pure and bad soul. That means one need to filter the above said saying, which will lead our life to a single path as a great articulator with baby pencil. And if some loses the charity of baby pencil, they loose their designer’s soul in this competitive era, which means the love and affection with baby pencil can not be tabulated and framed. It should let it flow with all supporting human organs on appropriate surface along with the human memory jungle that certainly will bring out the meaningful form of art which is actually the visualization power of perfect composition of a designer’s soul.

The most important note for the fresh learner is that he or she must not develop foolish fear phobia in learning. They should remember that God is great and He is the Almighty of all to make everybody’s act perfect. So, why not try as a GIFT fresher and become the master of baby pencil.

When we are talking about baby pencil, there are no big and fancy jargons in utility of baby pencils creative act. Kindly note that I am not trying to outlaw the language and protect the baby pencil qualities for the dimension of human mind. However, I am trying to convey through my recalling power and continuous versatile research since childhood that the baby pencil is dear to all and nobody can posses the lock and key to it. It is God who has given us to use them, so try to use it in any direction to any volume and depth in your art picture with baby pencil floating in versatile gesture and pressure. Certainly the user becomes an artist only in few hours and for that you cannot claim to be a sorcerer but it is your own magic, simply because of God’s grace.

At GIFT Gandhi NGO, from the very first moment to the very last, students learning consume countless varying lead baby pencils. However, the baby pencil gets vanished and becomes history for others to learn and then gets converted into wonderful art pieces; because every single soul of a designer is different and the work with baby pencil amazes others with its synchronous work.

Normally, the fresh learner tries to depict the truth in their learning, but at GIFT NGO baby pencil in the beginning flows uncontrollably for its images for a particular form to understand the depth and volume in versatile light effects. At GIFT, we blend in teaching unusual methods of creating images such as fishes flying in the air, fountains running against the gravitational power, nature wrapped around the human body, leaves of plant showing geometry, imaginary trees growing in sorcerer’s style, landscapes proceeding towards infinity, etc. That makes a learner flow the baby pencil against the normal human style of its utility and its act that makes the designer’s soul to understand any dimension of any form, due to that they can add various imaginary dimension in their empirical art works without any frustration. As a result, the final output is eye-catching and pleasing.

The queen of baby pencil is the softer lead which is designer friendly and very handy to rotate in any direction to achieve desirable results in all the initial and final stages. It is a combination of mind; hands and baby pencil which cannot be altered and replaced by any designer’s tool.

“Nobody can reject the baby pencil because it is simply dear to all and no designer’s soul can survive without the baby pencil”.

In my 50 years [2011] of experience with baby pencil, it has become the blood flowing in my veins which doesn’t require ignition. It happens spontaneously when needed. That is why I am able to visualize roses on plant standing still, roses flying; rose walking in any style and gestures of the above said act which is possible if you know how to control the baby pencil in your blood.

“Remember whenever you are using the baby pencil as a fresh learner, don’t make it friendly to the eraser. One should erase before the baby pencil acts from the mind. Such particular creativity, certainly will built the confidence for a learner’s growth”.

The baby pencil creates miracles like translucence happening through so many concept walls. Once the fresh learner quickly achieves the transparency of baby pencil they can frame their every single attempt as a final outcome.

There is not much left to say after writing and telling the stories as mentioned above whether it is good, very good or going to be much better if someone carry on using baby pencil in any art profession.

Don’t believe what I have written, please try it by yourself and feel good and better after achieving your desirable act through versatile baby pencil, then believe.

Remember, you cannot discard your friendly baby pencil to its wants and cozy shelter to perform as needed, that will make you understand the importance of other human beings in liking.

Learn how to praise every single stroke of the baby pencil, be it light or very light, dark or very dark or may be fragile or minute. If you praise every single act of the baby pencil as mentioned above you can conquer the world form your soul while creating masterpieces of art which can be Fashion Illustration, Textile Prints and Jewellery or Fine Art.

Today, various manufacturers have developed baby pencil in different leads, colours and in water soluble form as well. Hence, they have added more flavour and utility of the baby pencil to utilize by the designer’s soul in their appropriate creative act. At GIFT we mostly use Staedtler, Kohinoor, Faber Castle, Derwent or sometimes Camlin in the classroom to make the fresh learner friendly for the above said learning.

I don’t think that I need to write about volume, depth and dimensions of art in designing because it is readable from any picture plates. I just need to say that, try today and become a master without fear. If you give up your try and after sixteen years you are again tempted for trying it and succeed, then you will be regret, why wasted many years!! But if you have lost the sixteen years without trying then you are behind so many eras. So what I really want to convey is that learn and act with single adoration as mentioned above then you will find you relaxed and calm.

Baby pencil is not just a piece of tool, it totally gives you peace of mind and it will multiply its goodness every time you act fearlessly and carefully with the baby pencil.

 

Baby pencil is my tool but I cannot claim it, it can be yours too. Make it your friend and remember GIFT for the above mentioned said things and convey to others. That is my heartiest wish.

All my activities are transparent and whoever likes it will surely be benefited, that is why I am collecting penny to penny to built GIFT website and Google Blogs so powerful for all universal fresh learners. This is my mission and your mission should be, to get benefited in the name of God Almighty for the entire designer’s soul.

Water Colour for Fashion and Textile

Introduction to GIFT’s Water Colour Exercise:

To learn Water colour, one needs to go through history for better understanding of the subject meaningfully and that gained understanding will bring the subject illusions and glow to their mind with spiritual purity, that works symphonic ally and giving the feel of a heart beating in harmony with imaginary vision of layers and layers covered like crystal glass, from where one can see the transparent subjective compositions and occurrences.

It is very difficult to understand the earth like colour paradise with an additional essence of marine life which covers the earth and makes God’s creatures life to flourish by all means in numbers and in growth. As we all know one cannot travel the earth and understand in one lifetime as it becomes a difficult task for any human kind. That is why to understand the above subject; one should be very selective about the area to gather in depth knowledge for its happening.

The beauty of the paradise earth will remain as long as water is present which means without water the earth paradise will not remain the same. It is scientifically proven that the area of earth is divided into two major portions which constitute 70% water and marine life and 30% is the earth where we live in a versatile meaning. With this understanding water plays a major role for survival to all as above mention and you can easily follow the style of God’s creation. And certainly, it becomes very easy to obtain subjective knowledge with meaningful understanding to carry forward our own work for a better living and overall growth.

The above text certainly will not make you understand how to proceed as a fresh learner to learn Watercolor painting, drawing, etc. in such a short span as like GIFT students. For this we are adding a few examples and stories which will certainly open their mind for the proceeding information:

During the Solomon era, Solomon himself invited a Lady Queen as a guest of honor from their nearby kingdom. After the meal The Lady Queen came out from the castle and she saw the water being spread in a larger area in the desert near the Solomon castle. She got thrilled to see that and partly lifting her skirt, tried to wet her feet to touch the water surface and what she was seeing as water, she got shocked because it was horizontally spread with smoothness like a pure transparent joint glass slab. This shows that the purity of transparent cleanliness can easily fool the human mind’s belief. These kinds of various examples are present in history which can be learnt through stories of different eras and civilizations. Certainly that understanding and gathered knowledge from the stories can give you a clearer picture as to what actually is Watercolour and its paintings through a transparent style or partly adding a flavour of translucence.

From the above understanding we can have various examples for colours from paradise earth which is clean and pure and their transparent character and its utility historically depicted in different era’s and civilizations. Hence nobody can deny God’s creations as follows:

The colours like heifer green, pista green, swan green aqua marine, aqua purplish blue, aqua lilac, aqua lavender, flowery baby blue, baby green, baby yellow, baby scarlet, baby crimson, baby pink and  rocks/stones hue and their grey affect are still very close to the human mind and its utility which is from nature as natural as a baby. And such examples can never be denied by human, which is virtue and gift to us by the grace of God Almighty.

For learners it is a good example to see through aquamarine coloured sea, and see the distant happenings proceeding without any hassle while observing the purity of marine life. And if learners can learn water colour from the above stated examples it altogether builds up their confidence making their outreach to the subject artistic, technical and direct. The above stories will certainly open their minds at the very beginning in a direct context helping them to visualize with an added flavour of imagination form nature. Hence it is certain that their learning will then be carried forward.

The above understanding from examples will restrict you for using colours as like opaque medium, which means a tint of colour and more water on the paper surface will certainly give a transparent effect. And always remember from applying one stroke to another stroke of the brush from different colours, one must let the first stroke dry partially otherwise that second stroke of brush with colour makes the surface not transparent but translucent. With this practice one can carry on adding one layer to another on the same subject and you can see the entire added colour reflections in transparency of that subject clearly and its proceedings and happenings. What else the fresh learner needs to learn the subject confidently.

You may have heard the moral stories of the tortoise and rabbit, the thirsty crow and the hungry fox, sorcerer’s thoughts, which I have composed for fresh learners to give more meaning to their learning as follows:

Design Infinite Intaglio

Magnetizing art through the sorcerer’s splashing of wonderful thoughts,

With meaningful abstract ideas of heart,

As like a clever crow’s mind sort,

Like a directional continuous tortoise walk,

Without a giving up attitude as a confused fox,

That gives a way to GIFT students.

By Khalid Ameer Rafique

The above moral stories and text is meaningful in a fresh learner’s life to learn in short span as like a matured artist knowing the subject of Water colour for textile and fashion design at GIFT which is then carried forward into a conversion of textile surface, illustrations as well as fashion illustrations learning’s and its utility. This shows each learning in GIFT of design arts is somehow interlinked to each other where the subject synchronies in symphony, with harmonious compositions and their various derivatives and permutation and combinations for further professional practice. This is only possible if you follow the above explained understanding.

To be transparent and translucent in life, in the beginning it is painful because it is very difficult to kill the sinful mind and its hypocrisy and once a fresh learner achieves the desirable results, the above text becomes more modest and simple. For such learner it is very easy to accept the shortcomings while learning and certainly the smile on the face they correct them with the subject joyfully and due to such act, they don’t compete with outside world, they compete themselves. Nobody can deny such growth, which is virtue by the grace of God Almighty.

It is a matter of willingness just like we have learned to improve our handwriting with a knowledgeable mind through co-relating our memories, certainly your brain garden will be blooming and heart will shade towards the path of modesty in a learner’s life with their associations. This can be felt by learner as well as others and their work will across globally reaching for appraise.

The above understanding is not so easy without modesty and simplicity because it is difficult to praise somebody’s work and a fresh learner learns that they will learn more. And their leaning in the day to day’s life is something that nobody can deny, which is virtue by the grace of God Almighty and with that their soul of art will cherish.

Kindly do not correlate GIFT teaching patterns and understanding of sharing expertise through demonstrating individually methods or by stories. Since everybody has different ways of teaching the above said subject, only if you find it soothing then you must try to attempt that in learning otherwise the fresh learners will mingle you for their own distortion. So it is advised to kindly read the above text carefully. My 40 years of experience and expertise made me understand the meaning of solo modesty and humbleness, for others as a teacher. GIFT have uploaded the fresh learner’s illustration plates making others understand how to begin better than GIFT students globally.  Kindly note that in GIFT education of teaching methods and mission full pattern there is no exaggeration in teaching, since we believe to be very close to the human likings as well as mind, you will not find more distortion in abstraction in GIFT student’s work.

  Later I realized that I had painted the roses bluish pink and this was how I understood colour and my journey to understand it began from that instance of my life. Back home when I spoke to my elder brother Mr. Nasir.M.Rafique who at his time was the youngest principal of IHM Ahmedabad, laughed at me when I told him what had happened at NID. He suggested that we would consult a doctor to check my eyes with understanding of my brain pattern and then I realized that I could not see green and red and saw these colours as something else.


That made me completely blind to the above two colours, and this episode took a mysterious turn in my life where my knowledge started growing infinitely in the field of colour transparency and its character.
I became a magician and sorcerer of colour because the way I talk about colour others may not be able. So my empirical methods of learning have made me stronger and I have registered the actual colours and the colours that appear to me respectively for my in depth understanding of colour. 
After a few years when I was working in Kolkata (Rishra-West Bengal) for the development of linen fabric, being the senior most person I selected 7 people as technicians and supervisors who were fresher’s. They certainly went through medical tests and checkups and brain mapping and understanding of colours in the industry where the doctor found out that some were colour blind like me.
Even after me being at a high authority and all the tests that these people went through the organization raised the objective and had their strong doubts about these people that they would not be fit to work for their job profile due to the colour blindness problem.
I remarked that they were present not to design but would be taking care of the weaving with colours. Whatever colour shade they would be given they would have to simply match that and rectify it to the right shade and the color blindness can never change two images in it in one mind of the same colour. That means that the given colour is green and he had to match it accordingly and even if he sees the colour as brown he would still see the right shade to be matched with the sample that he would be given. For this I was highly appreciated by the organization for my good gesture towards the human society.

I have crossed almost 35 years in the field of Textile and Apparel Designing and during this tenure I worked with Arvind Mills in Ahmedabad, Jayashree Textiles Kolkata, Raymond’s in Thane, Gujarat Spinner and various small and large industries and also taught as a visiting and full time faculty at NID for 14 years and since 1995 teaching and heading GIFT.
This journey of experience was enough to develop the expertise and course abstract for fresh learners to name with colour. That is why at GIFT, the story of colour transparent character in my life is seen and we highly succeed in what work we can do in one hour, making the fresh learner not believes their own work in such a short duration. Nobody can believe that with fresh learners for your understanding see our picture plates and try to practice your own accordingly, you are also able to do that because any organization would believe in transparency and developing bridges from one place to another for the designers community just as I believe in it.
No one needs to believe the above mentioned as this is my faith and belief but it is the truth being proved at least since 15 years at NGO GIFT (Gandhi Institute of Fashion and Textile, Ahmedabad) where the fresh learners are live examples to experience the above truth where in a few hours they become master of colours where the understanding and knowledge keeps on increasing day by day. They also become good at Surface ornamentation with versatile forms such as flowers and flowery, fruits, motifs, bale, booties, leaves, grass, trunk, thorns, geometrical forms, and their abstract texture for meaningful synchronization for a shape and look and this is a complete learning in just 25 to 35 hours.
For your reference the actual colour picture plates is kept for your understanding and the practice can be done globally.
Thanks to God Almighty for my inspiration in faith to the masses along with my students in what GIFT teaches and believes.
