Deepening roots 1.8.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
A cauliflower, its stalk cut off from its roots like a severed organ, is like the cloud from an atom bomb, billowing amidst fragmentary shadows of high-rise buildings, factories and leafless trees. Close to this etching is a mixed media with another cauliflower. The pure white vegetable nestles in mellow reddish earth, sharing composition space with indigenous farming tools (the khurpi, chanchni, hensho and so on). But the pure white areas are unpainted; here the grains of the hand-made paper are visible. Are these areas empty then? Areas from where nature and agriculture have been cut out? The cauliflower works were created by the artist, Chhatrapati Dutta, during a residency workshop from January 23-25 at Bachhawat Estate, organized by the Bachhawat Foundation.

To lay out a menu in which the existing language of art woos evolving trends at Svikriti, Birla Academy's exhibition of works from its award winners that's on till August 24.

 An "offensive" article on Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa published on the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry website with an accompanying graphic image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicked up a storm in India which acted with "alacrity" today to force the island nation to tender an unqualified apology. As the article brought rival parties in Tamil Nadu together in a rare show of unity to condemn it, the Defence Ministry said the text titled 'How meaningful are Jayalalithaa's love letters to Narendra Modi?' had been published without appropriate authorisation and that it has been removed from the website. The issue also triggered protests in Indian Parliament.
