Gujarat: a citizen's perspective
She didn't know what to expect when she went to Ahmedabad a few months after the violence in Gujarat, but in the end, SHYMALA came to a premise that the unprecedented levels of bestiality and violence unleashed were only because criminal acts have gone unpunished over the years by various political parties that have wielded power.

Canvases of harmony
In an earlier period, while guns, barbed-wire tensions, and politics appeared in S.G. Vasudev's paintings, today he is more at peace, says UMA MAHADEVAN-DASGUPTA. An exhibition of his new works, already on show at the Sakshi Gallery, Bangalore, will open in Mumbai on September 7.
Diatribe or art?
`Documenta II' at Kassel, Germany, may be viewed as something of a harbinger of art in the 21st Century. The dominant issue that runs through the exhibition is one of human displacement, writes GAYATRI SINHA.
