The cityscape with all its opportunities comes at a price, a life devoid of nature. At Countryside, this is the one thing we want to change. We want to bridge the gap between the contemporary and our heritage. Our driving philosophy has always been to incorporate nature into our lives - whether it's in the form sustainable constructions creating a space, ideal for an indoor plant. No effort is too little as every drop makes an ocean.
I connect to our logo from the very first look and everytime I look at it . Its like, looking back to find the dots have connected themselves. As a small town boy with humble beginnings , I believe that all the endeavors, actions of mine and their fruits are not mine, but as a result of the “Divine Mother – Shakti’s“ grace and inspiration, who is expressing her will and acting through my efforts and actions. The logo which looks like the ‘third eye of Shakti ’ is like an indication and a constant reminder of the above fact. Its like she is telling me, “ always be humble because you are a medium not the doer, be grateful and sincere because you have been chosen as the medium”. Her ‘ Third Eye ’ which symbolically indicates Intellect , says that with such awareness , knowledge and purity of thoughts the Intellect evolves and , detached actions which are driven by Intellect are the strongest. As We as an Organisation and I keep progressing from one stage to other as the result of co-ordinated , organized and focused action , the logo will always remind us from where we started and keep connecting the dots backwards , keep us grounded and humble. Co-ordination, Team work, Focus and Organized action are traits of Shakti and symbolically represented in Hindu mythology with her eight hands working together towards a single goal – destruction of evil.
The logo is also indicative of the flame from a lamp with a standing wick. Such lamps whose flames point upwards are glown to convey a feeling of gratitude towards the Divine . It is like a person standing with folded hands drawn upwards and looking at the heavens thanking the Divine for everything. To the outer world , the logo manifests itself as indication of progress , simplicity , peace and forward thinking.
