Stuck in the house during the lockdown, I opened and leafed through my old sketchbooks. I found some sketches I did during my trip to Ajanta and Ellora in 2018. The taste of sweet memories of Ajanta and Ellora relieved me for a moment from the boredom of the lockdown. I recorded the beauty and simplicity of the ancient sites and its beautiful surrounding, replete with the monkeys. In my work, one can see my memory, experience and observations of the places, tinged with imagination and fantasy.
