The Eyes of the Thar - Satish Gupta
The Eyes of the Thar brings the desert in western Rajasthan alive through the sensitive eyes of the multi-talented artist Satish Gupta. His poetry and drawings come together, words and images weaving an intricate web of reflection, repose, distance and intimacy as they meld thought and feeling and compel one to pause and wonder. The reader is taken on a timeless journey through the carved havelis, the frescoed walls, the wondrous life of royalty and the colours of desert fairs, to the vast open expanses of the dunes with nomads on camel backs winding their way through eternity. His poems have been published in the broken wave and translated in Spanish and Catalan.
