Art matters

Updated on October 25, 2015

Rock carving


Historical remains,
speak of grandeur.

of times, when art was life,
life was all about art.

it ruled the rulers,
rulers were promoters.

But, expansionism demeaned pluralism,
greed replaced grandeur.

those who are, greedy,
destroy artistic history.

Art is an urge,
should never be purged.

past present or future,
It is humanities true saviour.

      Thanks surabhi. Just visited few historical places in karnataka, saw the grandeur and made me write.

      (You must visit Hampi, badami, pattadkal, bijapur next time you are around).
