Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts

Thirty one years ago, Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi set up this National Centre for the Arts , in memory of his mother. It is a wonderful place to visit which is rarely frequented by tourists. Every few days, there is a different artistic project or event. I went to a superb exhibition of primitive paintings which were displayed outdoors.

This was called Tat Tvam Asi, a phrase from the Upanishads meaning “That Thou Art”. The pure, original, self is identifiable with the ultimate reality. Way over my head, I’m afraid. But I loved the paintings.
