But as the days progressed, as the shapes and colours flowed into one another, I started to become part of my surroundings, and the common people of the market became my friends. So after 2 months I discovered that I had about 50 paintings and could conduct an exhibition, the street side was the natural choice. And the name ‘Aakri’ means flea market, seemed appropriate. The brochure was hand written on post-cards with small sketches. (I did almost 462 post-cards)
The exhibition was a raving success. Lots of people including my friends from the market came and enjoyed it.
