Everything around me has a reason and a story to tell. This is what exactly I try to depict in my work. The Night, especially the black against the yellow lamp dominates my visual landscape in my pictorial thesis. They offer a deeper understanding of the contemporary time for me.
The true scenes behind those temples in Varanasi define the critical reality of our culture, a life which is free and ‘bindaas’. It’s a place where one can enjoy the fullest pleasure. Thereby, it has acquired a fame as a place for ‘living’ as well as ‘dying’. Thus it is timeless or eternal.
