The Machine Maketh The Man

Kshitiz Anand   By Kshitiz Anand   Royal Enfield was the brand of the Enfield Cycle Company, a British engineering company. Notable for producing motorcycles, it also produced bicycles, lawnmowers, stationary engines, and even rifle parts for the Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield Lock.

Photo Feature by Mukunda De- Fighters in the cockpit

Mukunda De Photo Feature by Mukunda De Fighters in the cockpit Cock-fighting a favourite pastime of rural people in our country.The sport of cock-fighting, frowned upon by animal lovers, has staunch supporters in the countryside. My long nurtured desire to witness a cock-fight was fulfilled some time ago during the occassion of Makar Sankranti. The colour, atmosphere and the drama, there is something primitive about cock-fight. A play on life and death. It seems to paralyse the crowd’s thinking before arousing their aggressive instincts. In the background, perhaps, is a sneaking pride over... 

Our beautiful neighbour, Bangladesh: album from a sojourn

Our beautiful neighbour, Bangladesh: album from a sojourn   By Madhu Reddy Bangladesh: land of natural beauty! Bangladesh. When you hear the name, the image that comes to mind is not that of a country with abundant natural beauty. But it is! From beaches and coral islands to rolling hills, tea plantations, river islands and the mangrove forests of Sundarbans, Bangladesh is abundantly endowed. Don’t go by those images you see in mainstream media, get out and ‘know thy neighbour.’ Though we may be different, there are far more things we have in common.

Each frame makes you look within – at the body within your mind, as much as the bodies out there! To capture motion in a static frame has always been an exciting challenge – Mukunda has a very affectionate way of dealing with this – looking at motion through the eyes of innocence rather than use of heavy technique! Born in 1970 in West Bengal, India, Mukunda did his MFA [Painting] from Viswa-Bharati University, Santiniketan. He has been a staffer...
