Exhibition Glory Of The Ganges
Dev Goswami tells you how a glance at Paramesh Paul’s work highlights the sagas of the river Ganga
Why the river Ganga is so sacred in Indian culture can be a mystery, especially for someone who doesn’t know much about its religious connection and significance. With the levels of pollution that the river has seen in the past decade, it’s quite evident that it’s not getting the attention that it rightly deserves. And, a look through Paramesh Paul’s latest artwork will remind you of the river Ganga’s lost glory. Titled Glory of the Ganges, the exhibition features an array of colourful paintings that will transport you to the gorgeous city of Benares and give you more than just a glimpse of the pristine river Ganga of Paramesh’s dreams. “I’m inspired by the colour of mornings, the orange and the yellowish hue. The orange flag on the banks of the Ganges also inspires me and is part of my daily work,” says Paramesh.
