Chitrakar: The Artist

Regular price Rs. 550.00

Tax included.

The Artist (Chitrakar) is a selective reminiscence recapturing various pictures from the years of Benodebehari Mukhrejee's childhood, apprenticeship and maturity, up to the time he became blind. Master of the Household (Kattamashai) is a candid and complex fictionalized account of his struggle to come to terms with his blindness and continue to be creative, and the identity and ego problems that came with it. The Creator (Kirtikar) is a simple, though telling, parable on the vanity of inordinate ambition that snaps the connection between the ends and the roots. And Art Quest (Silpa Jagnasa) is an informal causerie that outlines his vision on arts, its basic elements and their differences in range and reference.
