Jaipur Journals- Satvik Veena Samvaad

Jawahar Kala Kendr is organising Rasrangam, a festival celebrating performing visual and literary arts.  As part of it, there was a show by Salil Bhatt and a two other artists. All the newspaper articles about his work and the legacy were pasted on the wooden plank and placed across the entrance of the hall.  

Salil Bhatt along with Abhishek and Kutle Khan was performing on stage. Contrary to the performance, the way the leading artist introduced the other artists was disappointing. The man of the hour, Salil Bhatt introduced one artist with a lot of pomp, saying he hails from Benaras, the land of traditions blah blah and didn't bother to introduce another artist who hails from a small village from Jaisalmer. Through out the show, there was more of his boasting and less of the act. 

What's the point of art when there's no humility and no respect for the fellow artists?
