Saptak Archives: Immerse yourself in an eternity of Indian Classical Music

In the city of Ahmedabad lies a time capsule of Indian classical music. Saptak Archives has a collection of recordings of the greatest artists over the generations, gathered from concerts and personal collections. Read about this treasure trove of music here. These records may be outdated but they contain myriad recordings that are not otherwise available. Fading black marker on a cassette reads ‘MANILAL NAG’ and lying upside down on this cassette is another one reading,‘PANDIT RAVI SHANKAR SITAR’. The stacks of cassettes feature several legends, and I have to squint my eyes to see the names– Buddhaditya Mukherjee, Amjad Ali Khan and many more, along with the year of their performances — all featuring some cryptic code or system…...

Abstracts in Nature by Manisha Sharma

When a science teacher takes hold of the camera to shoot nature, it is little surprising that we get to see nature in its most abstract form! An abstract conversation takes place between mother nature and photographer Manisha Sharma, who is a science teacher at Udgam School, in this album Abstracts in Nature. The series captures floral subjects with unusual precision, quenching the lenswoman’s artistic needs as she turns the subjects in focus into dramatic artistic depictions. The striking photographs play with duality. The viewer sees focus and depth, light and shadow, brightness and sharpness, illusion and reality, all at the same time. Through these eight photographs, Sharma narrates a kind of poetry that has neither a beginning nor an end.

Ahmedabad-based Manisha Sharma is a Madhubani painter and photographer by passion. Sharma enrolled herself in Navgujarat Photography under the tutelage of senior lensman Ketan Modi in 2016. Since then, she has been practising various genres of photography, especially creative depictions of nature’s forms. As an artist, Sharma creates detailed Madhubani artworks and merchandise like mugs, posters and fridge magnets based on her creations.

અમે તો સૂરજના છડીદાર

અમે તો પ્રભાતના પોકાર!                                              …અમે

સૂરજ આવશે સાત ઘોડલે

અરુણ રથ વ્હાનાર !

આગે ચાલે બંદી બાંકો, પ્રકાશ-ગીત ગાનાર !                       …અમે
