Indra Smriti

Indrasmriti is a small attempt towards remembering the most respected god from the Rigved, who is no longer worshipped as a god nor there exists a temple of him. The title speaks all about the project- remembering Indra, once again in today’s era.The idea originated as an opportunity for visualizing the dynasty of Indra. But as the time travelled more and more mysteries about the Vedic and the Hindu sanskriti were revealing. The thought of Indra was no longer an idea. It took a shape of its own.
It started evolving and revealing itself. Of course, the method which I followed made it possible.
This evolving and revealing process is never ending. As we can see numerous icons of Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha, Ram, and just by looking at them we can state the icon. We tend to understand the character and recognize them. But Indra’s character / icon is not so visible through Hindu iconography.I have travelled from the Vedas to the Hinduism a journey of 5000 years, which I must say was the most exciting experience of my entire career so far. For this I would like to thank my Gurus, IDC and all the people who believed in me and supported me.Following are the pages of the book which I have compiled. For more information, contact me.

Hi this is Luke. Great stuff. really like your work and thinking. Francis Joe told me about you. i am doing an experiment shoot for artistic purpose. Wondering if you'd be interested. Really good work. I really like the king's throne area in pencil in b & w. Good perspective and the reflection on the floor - Is that by hand or technique?

All the best.
