The rhythms of rural India
- Padma Jayaraj
We are familiar with different Indias: technological India, heritage sites, or physical features highlighting its natural wonders: its water world, its mountain terrains, deserts and coastal plains. The sights are many. The diversity of its ethnicity also is remarkable. There is a need to carry this reality which is the roots and strength of India in our consciousness as we march on, in time. Suresh Khot, a product of J.J. School of Art, is projecting a charming face of India in all its simplicity and beauty. He is a freelance painter who has done solo-shows in India’s metros.

SURANGI, his painting exhibition (October 18 to 24, 2016) at Jahangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, is a testimony to his mission: paying tribute to a land still antique in its rural rhythms.
