Description

Claudia Hyles in a lifetime of journeys to the sub-continent has never been deterred by someone saying ‘Don’t go, there’s nothing to see’. Discovering Rikki Tikki Tavi’s garden at Allahabad, the original Indore location of the National Gallery of Australia’s Brancusi Birds in Space or a twilight glimpse of the site of the Battle of Plassey are all tiny pieces in her giant Indian jigsaw. From paradise gardens to cautionary tales for children, cricket balls to carrots, solitary days in country buses to bathing in the Ganges with 30 million others, India’s colour, complexity and vitality is painted vividly.
