|Introduction||Shall I frame you in a minute flat ?|
|Interests||1-Minute CARICATURING. I consider that drawing is the most creative art since chances to signify meaning are infinite and are available to even the non-initiated. However, in SPEED CARICATURING as I have been doing for the last 31 years, the scare is in the knowledge that the black ink lines once fallen on paper would not stand any kind of human editing . The challenge is in capturing the essence (bhava) of a person in the self-allotted 1 minute. The thrill lies in seeing people flocking to have a peek at the caricature and breaking into laughter. And the ecstacy is in seeing one of your ancient creations adorning a profile / avatar in an unknown webpage or an unvisited drawing room in grandeur. But the wet-blanket in any live- caricaturing spot would be the guy who impolitely blurts out in falsetto "Does this look like me ?".|
|Favorite Music||Classical Karnatic & Hindustani, Kathakali-Sopanasangeetham, Gazal|
