For a long time, this studio has been in repose, just like its bigger counterpart in Shantiniketan. My carpe-diemist self has always encouraged me to wrest something ‘extraordinary’ out of the ordinariness of living. I paint in leisure. I paint when I am happy. I paint when I am sad. And each time, I rejoice in attaining something new, almost finding a new self, and I rejoice at the profound mysteries that are yet to be unveiled. Old age does not stop me. So I paint, and I get more of life. Art for life’s sake, you can say.
