Like Father, Like Daughter

It is not often that we come across a father daughter duo show in the field of art. So, you can imagine my delight to know such a unique pair whose exhibition Flame of the Forest, is currently on in Bangalore.

Paresh Hazra has been a well known name in Indian art. He chose Bangalore as his home along with his wife Bandana, where he taught painting and both his daughters were raised.

Dancing the Gods

The relationship between dance and music is akin to the relationship between sound and sight. The potential link between dance (kinetic rhythm) and music (auditory rhythm) heighten the emotional experience. Both posit the foundation of harmony, balance and rhythm.
