I found this while driving on a road that runs parallel to the Noida Expressway. It's a brick kiln chimney left untouched on the divider. It seems as if the road builders had a sense of history or irony or humour or all of them together when they decided to leave this thing untouched right in the middle of the road. Maybe it was meant to be a reminder to the commuters of this expanding metropolis that all of man's building ambitions from Indus Valley to the present BHK Boom have had their beginnings in the humble brick baker.

My relationship with my hair has always been strained. I started greying in school. By the time I was in college I began to colour my hair with henna that resulted in a rich auburn tinge. Sometimes I even used black or dark brown hair dye. Then in my early twenties I had an aesthetic revelation. And I stopped using colour in my hair. Looking back I think it was an attempt to recognize and appreciate the real me, as I was evolving somewhat precociously through a spectrum of greys. Now I am in my early forties and have gone more or less silver. Recently while I was sitting in my studio I thought I'd 'colorize' my hair again and sort of relive a growing-up strangeness. And so I gave myself a hair colour not normally associated with human hair.

This phrase turned inside my head yesterday and the more I thought about it the more profoundly I felt its truth. The picture is from Buddha Park in Ravangla in Sikkim where I'd recently gone for a shoot
