Book & DVD. The art of Sonabai Rajawar has no precedent. She is one of the few self-taught artists of India, whose story expresses the capacity of human beings every where to meet their challenges head-on, and to draw from deep within their inner resources the strength and insight to change their lives. Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing is the result of years of research by the author. Through stories, insightful documentation and evocative images in colour, he conveys Sonabai's life and that of her family and community, portraying the remarkable productivity that resulted from her isolation, and the influence she had on the work of seven other local artists. For a decade and a half, Sonabai was forcibly removed from almost every thing she had known growing up. Undaunted, she found ways to transform her oppression into expressions of beauty and joy in living, creating an entirely new artistic expression with no guidance or instruction. Her art was completely different from anything ever seen in India before -- a world of colour, light, and whimsy -- all her own. This book and accompanying DVD are complements to an exhibition at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, through Spring 2010.

"As a young woman, Sonabai Rajawar finds herself alone, day after day after day, for almost fifteen years of marriage. No family, no friends... And then one day, she 'makes' her way out of her oppressive loneliness into a world of creativity, beauty and joy. This sensitive telling of Sonabai's story follows her transformative artistic journey from the tactile experience of her first creations in clay, innovative experiments with colour and light and unfettered play with pattern and design, to being embraced by the art world. Rich photographs augment the telling, for a fascinating introduction to the life, work and milieu of this quietly strong, self-taught artist. Together they offer a detailed look at her art and the organic growth of her distinctive creative vision. In the process, they also evoke a compelling profile in courage and the larger story of how Sonabai's art, like all great art, transcends the personal to the universal"--Back cover.

The manifestation of an idea -- architecture is a celebration of life. Traditional Indian architecture has ably demonstrated the universality of it communication as well as its validity within multiple value systems.This is achieved essentially by relying on spatial experiences derived through narratives -- dynamic perception of space while in movement -- its kinesthetics. The interactive process of encoding and decoding between the space and perceiver, orchestrates spatial narratives. This book is an attempt at understanding the very roots of what constitutes the Indian context by examining its notions of time, space and existence.
