Offering in Green

Adwaitya revisits his time with the artist Sen and his housemaid Nandini.

Adwaitya is borne away on a palanquin by Nandini, leaving behind a makeshift existence in temple grounds for residence in an artist's home, where debates on the essence of colour and purity of artistic expression take centre stage - until political unrest cuts into this rarified atmosphere.
