Beautiful, each of them! The long wait has been worth it. =) Is the fourth from folklore/myth too?

Apropos nothing but, I was just curious about your opinion on something. Do you think there are publishers (however small) in India at the moment willing to take on experimental work? A novel or anthology of poetry with illustrations and freely bi/multi-lingual, for instance?

Deboleena. I do think there are publishers, particular smaller, independent publishers - like Zubaan, Blaft, Yodakin - who may want to experiment with unconventional forms. The print-runs may be small, though, and the money nonexistant. So long as your reasons for doing what you are doing are true...

I saw this day before at the Alliance exhibition. It really is a phenomenal piece of work. Stunned me.
