Inside the Haveli
11 x 14", acrylic on paper

"I have always been fascinated by the Havelis (traditional mansions). During my travels to the Punjab and Rajasthan, I had the opportunity to visit a few that belonged to my friends. Inside each was a world in itself.  Courtyards and gardens, winding staircases and the parakeets. Within this world, women could be themselves, free of purdah.  Here they dressed up, sang, and danced with carefree abandon.

"With the rise of nuclear families I doubt whether the Havelis will last for long. As an artist, this painting is my tribute to a wonderful past."
