I recently had the opportunity to read from “My Days with Ramkinkar Baij” on the occasion of the launch of “Could you Please, Please Stop Singing?”, Sabyasachi Nag’s book of poetry at the Art Gallery of Mississauga.
In this excerpt, Baij talks about the essence of portraits and the fodder faces can provide to an artist. He also discusses his own treatment of Tagore for sculpting a bust of the poet.
Here’s a video recording of the reading.

Dear Bhaswati, it was nice seeing you talk at the Mississauga.Art Gallery. I wish the audio could have been a bit more audible. Arun Dehnath
Dear Arun da, thanks for listening. The audio quality isn’t the best, but if you increase the volume of your PC/device, it might help.
