  • The Knight Without An Armour: Reexploring the Legend of Dharti Aba And His Munda Warriors

    Abstract: Humans have taken a long period of evolution to find their social or ideological solidarity in their associations. It is where the sense of belonging arises from. Being part of a whole, contributing to it and protecting it are borne from the cognisance of mutual understanding. This, in turn, forms the basis of identity, individually or as a group.

  • Motifs

    On a veranda with intricately carved and Filigreed doors, Dancing lights and swaying shadows: Etched is childhood, at my grand-mom’s in Dehradoon. We children watched as the kathputliwala outside Made the kathputlis (wooden dolls) Swing up and down...up and down...

How fabric and its motifs Flow along with time Moving through differ…

Who hadn’t ogled at John Abraham’s well chiselled physique when he carved his niche in Bollywood with his dashing features and dimpled smile? He was one of the six-pack stalwarts to introduce the concept of Ecto-Mesomorph in Bollywood and instantly made every woman drool over hi…
