WSD - Best Friends- Calendar 2012

You will be happy to know that the WSD calendar(Wall and Desk) for 2012 is now available. The theme of this year's calendar is Best Friends. It is a celebration of the bond that street dogs have developed with other living beings … be it other dogs, cats, and of course…people.

The calendar is available at various outlets in Mumbai. (Please see given below). It can also be couriered to various cities outside Mumbai(check with us on the courier costs depending on the no and type). It is priced at Rs 150 (Wall and Desk) as a donation towards WSD's sterilisation, immunization and health care programmes.

The WSD Calendar for 2012 is inspired by Julie from the Oval Maidan. Julie’s life truly epitomized what friendship is all about. Providing a gentle haven where the other can be relaxed and feel safe. Being together without needing to pretend. Loving another person in spite of flaws and imperfections.

Julie got along famously with the pets that came to the Oval and the strays that lived there. She did not distinguish between the pedigreed and the pariah. She embraced them all with the joie de vivre that was so characteristic of her.
As you flip through the pages of this calendar, you will be moved by the uplifting stories that tell of the unconditional love and devotion shared among friends (on twos and fours!)
So come, join the Best Friends as they sing their “Song of Friendship”
The photos have been taken by Rohan Mukerjee. Rohan has been a dedicated volunteer with WSD for several years. His passion for animals is clearly evident in the poignant images that have graced the pages of the current as well as all previous WSD calendars. Rohan holds a Master’s degree in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh and is presently working for Samrakshan, an NGO dedicated to preserving the forests in Meghalaya. Rohan’s commitment to WSD continues with the annual trips that he religiously makes to Mumbai to shoot for the WSD calendar every year
