the Chandigarh Art College (Punjab) I was a misfit.
Even the social atmosphere of the city was alien
to me as thus far I had either lived in a village
or in a monastery. As for my Swedish experience
it was not relevant to Chandigarh.
My own aloneness and depression found a resonance
in these real images of buss stop. Out of this
state came sketches, etchings, lithographs and
paintings that later came to be known as the Bus
All the sketches and the paintings were done in
the mediums to which I was introduced in the art
college such as pencil and paper, crayon, conte,
pen and link, and oil on canvas.
