"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Putting On A Show

art 001


When my friend Sunil entered a couple of his pictures into a local art show, I knew I must make the effort and attend the opening.

Six in the evening is relatively late for me to be gallivanting on the mainland, so an auto-rickshaw was summoned.

We chuntered our way through the evening traffic, across the bridges to the mainland and rush hour gridlock, but finally arrived.

Anu helped me up the steep and narrow stairs to the gallery.

Sunil and the owner warmly greeted me. Young artists, recently graduated from Thrissur, came to say hello.

Vegetable samosas and chai, served in flimsy cardboard cups, were offered.

They put on a fine show.
