Art with a heart

Went and splurged at the Dastkar Haat at Kalakshetra on just one item- got a black and white large Kawad katha- one side Krishnaleela and the other side Ramayana

The artist recalled my request of two years ago and got in touch over phone. He moved me ( manipulated me some say at home) by saying he refused to sell this piece in Dilli and in Bangalore where he exhibited his works recently.

You may recall I had bought a small typically colourful Kavad last time. This one is B& W but the stories it tells are full of colour- detailed and clear.
For those of you in a position to visit, there is:
The Mylapore fest,
The Dhrupad fest and
The equestrian show at OMR
