The Eternal Seeker Finds Moksha

The Eternal Seeker Finds Moksha

There is a telling anecdote about Kishori Amonkar’s early years as a classical sensation when she was rattling off the number of shows she had been booked for and her mother and guru Mogubai Kurdikar, herself a legendary disciple of Ustad Alladiya Khan’s Jaipur Atrauli gharana, heard her out and asked her if her calendar had […]






Making Peace Via Art

Making Peace Via Art

Bangladeshi artist and war hero Shahabuddin Ahmed is showing select paintings at Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Gallery for four days staring tomorrow.  And when we call, he speaks softly over the phone from his residence in Paris, his voice warm and affectionate, and surprisingly unaffected by the harshness of war.  Ahmed imparts the same sense of calm to […]






India Art Fair 2017: Small And Impactful

India Art Fair 2017: Small And Impactful

Less is more. The phrase aptly sums up India Art Fair that took off in the capital yesterday. The fair, in its ninth edition, has cut out the big and the bizarre to focus on local flavors – particularly from the South Asian region – and socio-political issues that surround us.  Smaller and compact, the […]






Rima Fujita: Painting Peace And Prayers

Rima Fujita: Painting Peace And Prayers

In a world where hate is normalised through conversations, social media exchanges, images, sound bytes, war is a constant news ticker and pain has lost its pungency because it is so pervasive, how do we stay hopeful? By not just noticing beauty, but creating it. By focusing on light. And colour. For Japanese American artist […]






Yusuf Arakkal: The Artist Of Kindness

Yusuf Arakkal: The Artist Of Kindness

  I cannot recall the exact number of times I have interviewed or spoken to Yusuf Arakkal in the past 21 years. Possibly one of my first stories with him was when I interviewed him and his son Shibu Arakkal (a celebrated photographer) for a Sunday edition of a national daily. I remember meeting his […]

A Cafe That Serves Food, A Heritage Tree And Art

A Cafe That Serves Food, A Heritage Tree And Art

    For the first writing workshop by Unboxed Writers, the Leanin’  Tree Art Café is the perfect choice. Here is a piece that I did on Leena Chethan, the driving force behind the cafe in April 2015 for The New Indian Express. Art has been a passion for Leena Chethan for as far back […]






Big Magic: The Art of Saying, Yes

Big Magic: The Art of Saying, Yes

2015 was the year of letting go; it was the year of saying no. What I reckoned as my dream job began crushing my soul. I said no to it, and went back to my desk job. When I was stuck in a crevice created by a moral dilemma — should I let my furry-friend go on […]






The Rabbit Didn’t Vanish

The Rabbit Didn’t Vanish

I was eight, when I participated in my first painting competition. It was conducted in a park on a sultry, summer evening. I wore one of my favourite cotton dresses, carried my water-colours, fancy brushes in a rucksack, and held my sister’s hands, as she walked me to the park. It was filled with hundreds of […]






Zentangling The Mind

Zentangling The Mind

  Do art and religion have a connection deep enough to keep our minds calm and rooted? This is a question that has crossed my mind very often lately. The human mind is probably the most complex to decipher despite it being the supposed vessel of logical reasoning. Somehow, this very basic virtue of logical reasoning is […]






His Art Is His Message

His Art Is His Message

If adversity challenges us to be stronger than our pain, Eby N Joseph has been there and done that. Many times over. The Kerala based artist was diagnosed with cancer and has not just survived the disease but is now helping other survivors with the one gift he has always relied on to climb out […]
