A house belongs to she who runs it. This house is only mine.
Streer Patra, Letter from the Wife (1972)
Stills from Aribam Syam Sharma’s Imagi Ningthem (1982).
A lot has been said, is being said and there is a lot more. Towards the end, realisation dawns that what was to be said has been left out. So when the words fail to express these things, Tarana fulfills it.
—Pt. Kumar Gandharva
"To survive nowadays you must form a group. Will you come to the meeting?"
"No, I’ve to look after my family—I’ll be going that way."
"You’ll have to change your way."
"Go son, I won’t stop you now. How long can one live in isolation?"
"…Jamila, I, too am weary of living apart from others."
Those who view the storm from afar, see no difference between here and there. To join in and become a part of it…this is the call of the times, here and there.

C-print Diasec, 64 x 52cm
A suite of photographs of Urdu-language films shown on state-controlled television in the 1970s, examining television as a way of imagining and shaping collective ideas of ‘success’ or ‘urban modernity’ as exemplified by the interiors, fashion, personae and gestures of the films. Taken at slow shutter speeds, they capture scanning lines of the television screen and produce a grainy, blurred effect that suggests a dream or trance-like state, several steps removed from the ‘reality’ of the depicted scenes.
