part 1:

Anshuman Dasgupta talks about Indian artist Benodbehari’s 1946 mural ‘Life of Medieval Saints’.
The mural was done just before India’s Independence and in response to riots such as Noakhali’s; and is Benod Behari’s response to the division between Hindus and Muslims, by representing a nation of Saint poets. Medieval and contemporary figures come together, as the river Ganges joins different civilizations. The mural celebrates different ideas as well as it uses different techniques and styles, with modernist and traditional ways of depicting spaces and characters. Multi-focality and cohabitation being its central themes.
