As I rang the bell at The Guild -- this strange Mumbai procedure for a gallery in landlord-owned rented spaces -- it struck me that it was a Monday. Were they shut? Luckily the door opened and the two-story climb up a tourist-infested Colaba building with an erstwhile dubious reputation is worth it. Prajakta Potnis' world is anything but seedy. I love this profound contrast in senses that Mumbai assaults one with. Compared with any other city, the magnitude of the assault is incomparable and the... [more]

An entire wall at Experimenter Art Gallery is bare, save for a few cracks – likely to appear on walls of old homes as a result perhaps of moisture, hammering or just the passage of time. However, such cracks are MOST unlikely to appear on the walls of one of the ritziest galleries of the city. Naturally, therefore, I’d passed it up initially for other walls, adorned with blown-up photographs of installations. We’ll return to those in a bit. But first the wall with the cracks: or, rather, the simu... [more]

What is it that makes me ‘me’ and you ‘you'? Broken down to the basic unit, rounded off to the last decimal point, what of us will remain if our being, this Sisyphean burden we bear daily, is removed quite out of the blue? A few strands of hair on the bed we sleep in, the smell of skin under the sheets, our well dug footprints on the soles of shoes, tossed indelicately once beyond the familiar threshold of home. And perhaps a note. Poignant in its brevity and aptly mystifying. But will these... [more]

With the Asian Games less than 50 days away, and India’s capitol in a state of utter disrepair—not to mention the scores of underpaid and overworked migrant laborers who have flooded Delhi, as well as the country’s other metros, to build not only shabby stadiums but countless high-rises - one would expect a few more signs of popular outcry.  But street graffiti is conspicuously absent.  The buildings, even when crumbling and monsoon-stained, are largely left unmarked by political sloga...
