Hey, the name's Art

Baked beans for breakfast at the artist's house. Memorable for two reasons:

1. I haven't had breakfast (official breakfast!) in ages!

2. I haven't had baked beans in eons!

So, thanks artist... though the coffee could have used a bit more sugar. ;-)

So let's talk about art... and my funny relationship with it. I can't understand much of it, but I like to think I appreciate it. I have a profound respect for artists, though I find their airs silly at times. Would it be art, if it was a bit more grounded in reality? Conversely, would it be real, if it were artistic?

Now there's a googly for you.

The funny thing is: there are people who are even less comfortable with the concept of art than I am. Some Sundays, when I visit my brother in a kurta, jeans and a coupla beads, he says I look all Colaba Causeway arty-farty, and I can't help but laugh at that idea. I had no idea who Jitesh Kalat was, till the artist and a colleague at work informed me. I still think the name Naina Chuddasamma Whatever sounds extraordinarily funny, and should be misspelled with an O instead of the U.


Yes, yes, I'm quite a cave man.



Child, its Jitish Kallat. And Nana Chudasama. Really. Back to socialite kindergarten for you.

Sometimes, LH, just sometimes, you set yourself up for this.

Lets just stick to the adventures of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala et al. I understand that better.

I plead complete ignorance to art, artists and artistic blabber. I do.

I think Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is a greater artist than most others. At least he got his 750 crore while he was alive !! :P:P
