6:30 p.m. Dinner
7:30 p.m. Lecture

Learn about the artistic journey of the 18th century painter, Manaku, coming from an uncommonly talented family that lived in an obscure little village in the hills of northern India. Endowed with soaring imagination and great painterly skills, this man – with a name that literally means a ruby, that ‘stone of fame and mystique’, whose glow keeps hinting at an inner fire – was capable of painting giant rings of time upon timeless waters, envisioning the world of gods and demons littered with cosmic battles and earthly triumphs, but also gazing, with tender eyes, upon the world of two lovers in which there is tortured loneliness at one moment, but, in the next, ‘her garlands fall on his chest and glisten like white cranes on a dark cloud.’

This lecture is led by Dr. B.N. Goswamy, distinguished art historian and Professor Emeritus of Art History at the Panjab University, Chandigarh.
