AN ARTS PRACTICE PROJECT IMPLEMENTED BY INDIA FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS, MADE POSSIBLE WITH SUPPORT FROM SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT FUND
I am highly indebted to Dr. Rustom Bharucha for his guidance, my brother Ashutosh for his generous support and to my wife, Sukhmani for tolerating me.
12 poems on 12 postcards
I embarked on selling postcards carrying my photographs and poems to sustain myself while I pursued this program. A host of people supported my efforts by buying the collection of 5 volumes of poems on postcards. Preeti BirlaNair amplified my campaign and helped me reach Raj Kumar Birla, Kiran Nally, Lavaya Jayram and Sharad Reddy.
Alka Singh, Deepak Paliwal, Miki & Madhavi Desai, Murali Cheeroth, Prachi Satrawal, Saurabh Malpani, Shruti Rao, Uday Andhare and Vrinda Sexaria also supported with the postcards project.
Snehal Shah gave more than I asked for.
Neelakshi Mour got one of the five volumes for herself.
The postcards are available – as both a collection of 5 volumes (Rs. 2,500/-) or individual volumes (Rs.600/-) – for those interested in poems, images and in supporting me. See preview below or head to 12-poems-on-postcards to view in detail or order on siddharth@designpendulum
