29 March, 2021 – Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

Around the time last year when lockdown was imposed, I got unbridled time off office-work, perhaps for the first time in two decades. I slipped happily into my kaftan, picked up my brush and re-commenced my ritual of converting empty, discarded bottles into works of art. The kaftan provided comfort; the bottle became a daily habit of meditation. The result is a collection of two hundred plus painted bottles. My first ever exhibition will be at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur on 8 April, 2021 — Mugdha Sinha, photograph by Shyam Sundar
