Kuch aisi he to  hoti hai zindagi,
kuch armaan dafan  kuch adhure .....

In the end, 
this is all that is life,
some dreams die early, 
others left unfinished.

#Turkish and #Mughal #rule in the #Indian #subcontinent, also introduced #CentralAsian and #Persianstyles of #Islamicarchitecture in the #region, and by the late #12thcentury early #monuments in this style were appearing in and around #Delhi, the capital of #DelhiSultanate. Starting with the #Turkic #SlaveDynasty which built the #qutubminar(#1192 AD) and its adjacent Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque (#1193 CE). #NorthIndia was successive ruled foreign dynasties in the coming centuries giving rise to the #IndoIslamic #architecture. While the prevailing style of architecture was #trabeate, #employing #pillars, beams and lintels, this brought in the arcuate style of construction, with its arches and beams, which flourished under #Mughal patronage and by incorporating elements of #Indianarchitecture, especially #Rajasthani architecture including decorative corbel brackets, balconies, pendentive decorations and indeed kiosks or chhatris, to developed a distinct, Mughal architecture style, which was to become a lasting legacy of the nearly four hundred years of the Mughal rule.(From Wikipedia)

Having grown up in Uttar Pradesh where there is a mix of Hindu and Muslim population, I used to see these niches in the walls in houses and courtyards. Some people would still light lamps/diyas in them towards the evening which is the purpose of these.  To see the light reflecting inside them as the light of the God, that's what the narrative says when these niches evolved with time. How these elements of worship travelled from country to country and touched different religions and became what they are. There are lots of studies around these forms and how they have become so important in forts and palaces. 
I have been curious to know more about them since I started making them in clay. These elements from Indo Islamic architecture are seen in most parts of India but they are now only limited to really old houses or houses that are already in ruins. I feel deeply drawn to these Wall niches and love making them in clay. 
I have made this body of work in Gujarat with the potters of Kutch. The pottery cluster close to Mandvi paints these age old designs on their pots (there is no record as to how old these designs are as they are passed on from generation to generation). I found these walls niches in ruined houses in the potters village I was working in and thought there is no better place to revive them! 
Stay tuned for more photos !

Mumbai is a 24 hour city, an eclectic mash up of contemporary western aesthetics and night-life buzz alongside the more familiar eastern offerings I've become accustomed to.

Mumbai's extensive coastline greets the Arabian sea and provides a reprieve and retreat from the daily grind for Mumbaikars and daytrippers alike.

The unsheltered coastline reveals Indo-Islamic shrines that are beset with rocky inlets activated by street food stalls, bright neon lights, lovers young and old, overflowing bazaars and shanty communities.
