trip to lucknow
  • hi everybody

    Been to Lucknow, Ayodhya, Bhopal, Bhimbetka, Bhojpur, and Sanchi.
    The conference at Lucknow was a successful. Everybody was thrilled
    to see new images of chola paintings. A great scholar of benaras and
    who worked with C.Sivaramamurthy had invited me for a special talk
    at Bhata Kala Bhavan/BHU, a treasure house Indian art.

    Ayodhya – fine. Frisked at so many places. Police was kind enough to
    let our cloths on. Rest prohibited. Aren't we wasting our time and
    energy on this?

    Bhimbetka- Nice site of prehistoric Roack art

    Bhojpur needs special mention. It houses the largest stone linga –
    9m high. An attempt was made to construct a massive temple there by
    king Bhoja, but did not complete even the garbhagriha. There is a
    massive ramp of that period near the temple. Remember the ramp for
    Big temple. I will post the images afterwards.

    Sanchi: great work

    Again off tonight to Karnataka via Bangalore. To Hampi, Aihole,
    BAdami, Pattdakal and Bijapur.
