Shantiniketan - Dec 2008

Dekhi Nai Fire. Reminded me of the old days, when used to get those weekly copies of Desh with Bikash Bhattacharjee's paintings. The etchings (were they in charcol?) came back down the memory lane.

But it was shocking at times. Found a lot of Art work lying in shambles over the Shantiniketan campus. Take this one for instance. Found pupils playing Badminton around it - with a sense of nonchalance. From a common man's perspective, I thought the best place for this art work could have been in some museum. But it doesnt.

Bnasuria - nijer mon e ....

Baul - lonely. I wish I could sit for the whole day listening to the strings.

The empty classrooms.

Standing Tall.
