Travelling and visiting temples, monuments and museums to understand the Vigrahas and their background is something I do and enjoy. During these travels, I come across sculptures, paintings, structures, people and situations that catch my attention and interest. Most of the time they do not have any direct connection to the Vigrahas in my collection. But some of them are worth documenting and sharing.
This column is an attempt to share such items/experiences with the readers on this blog site and others. The topic is immense and will confine myself to those subjects where I have something to add or say. Just an appreciation of what I saw and heard.
This will take the blog site beyond Vigrahas and the notes on them. Not totally unexpected. It is four years since the first blog. I am also benefiting from the experience.
