When studying at CAVA in Mysore I’d seen these mobile temples that look like small carts. They’re quite popular too! I used to see a lot of people visiting them. They decorate the whole cart with mythological characters and stories. They resemble cut out art. The moment we decided the theme of the design to be everyday art, I knew I was going to get a shot of it. There are quite a few these carts in Mysore. This particular image was shot from the cart, which is in front of the famous Krishna Rajendra Hospital. This government hospital is frequented by many people from nearby villages, for many of whom prayer is an important part of healing. The location of the cart aside, the curious element is the pictures on the cart – the graveyard scene from the Sathya Harishchandra myth! Not very encouraging for a hospital, now is it?

A Beautiful World

I decided that I would explore this place near Regulated Market in Mysore where I used to see a lot of lorries parked. I knew that I would get some good shots of lorry graffiti here. When I went there I found this particular lorry, which was from Hassan. The landscape on it had a very true treatment of traditional lorry art. It was bang on for depicting “Ee bhoomi”. Finally it got used as I had thought.

To be continued.
