First Colors


Every dawning day in India is immersed in dazzling colors – vermilion reds, shades of deep yellow, greens of all intensities – which form a part of the food we eat, the gods we worship and the houses we inhabit. The mud walls in many houses in rural India are covered with bright paintings of flowers, birds and other motifs which can also be seen – in a more complex rendition – in the traditional miniature and wall paintings dating back several centuries. The colors and the imagery have seeped into the very fabric of life. In the picture I captured a few months back, the 'Chakda' is exhibiting an exotic array of colors while its proud owner is enjoying an afternoon of leisure in the far town of Junagadh, in a corner of western India.
As an artist, I think this is the best place to start my blog, the place where art has formed a spontaneous expression of existence itself.
