Rethinking previous work is necessary.This is one of the photos that spawned off the Shivajinagar Signs project that Namita Malhotra and I did.
And a similar Sarai project on Street-Signs in the city of Pune called Vaartaphalaks spawned off this train of enquiry.
We addressed questions of divisive material, but these issues come back again and again.
Living in Gujarat and then coming back to where you grew up, a largely undivided atmosphere, (although changing).
Saint God, Communalism, Divisiveness.
None of these terms have stand alone meanings.
What about terms like fundamentalism?
Shivajinagar Signs is now a flickr pool for everyone interested in contributing to it and adding to our archive.Bismillah 🙂
Both these projects were facilitated by Sarai Independant Fellowship Grants.
