Works Synopsis

Life and Death – New
Temples strangulated by fig trees (Ficus strangulosa) had their jubilant life with resonance of hymn. All God’s creatures, animate– inanimate, has its own life cycle. Temples are dilapidated with passage of time. Sun peeps through fig trees creating light–shadow effect bringing melancholy instead of foot falls of human being. One dies for the other to flourish. At Angkor Wat life and death goes side by side holding hand together.
