 Ammachi
19 x 25.5", acrylic on paper

"We lived in Kottayam in the mid-sixties when most Christian women wore the traditional 'chatta and mundu' along with large golden earrings. Ammachi was my friend Beena's grandmother. Ammachi always sat on the porch overlooking the garden and the fields, and read her Bible.  I remember how serene she looked, clad in spotless white with her neatly pleated 'vishari' behind.  Today the chatta and mundu are worn only by the older Christian women as the youngsters prefer sari, salwar and the maxi."
