In this long-form essay, veteran artist K. G. Subramanyan reflects on modern Indian art and expresses his concerns with a wide range of issues—art, aesthetics, visual perception and creativity; the importance of craft practice and its nurturing; the role and future of old traditions and cultural institutions in the contemporary world; the detrimental effects of the Industrial Revolution and high-technology societies; the constant depletion of the environment; our nation’s inability to cope with the education and employment of its divergent multitudes; and the present-day scenes in art, education and society.
