Whatever the British did, they sure knew how to build a pretty fab memorial

MOST RECENT

The Chowmahallah Palace has been exquisitely restored and makes you feel like it never left the Nizamiat era. I snuck these pics of the Audience Hall in before they could catch me 🙈

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly known as Victoria Terminus Station, in Mumbai, is an outstanding example of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture in India, blended with themes deriving from Indian traditional architecture. The building, designed by the British architect F. W. Stevens, became the symbol of Bombay as the ‘Gothic City’ and the major international mercantile port of India.

An usual but curious British seal on the canon at Bangalore palace. The motto literally interprets to 'Shamed be who evil of it thinks' and is known to be motto of British chivalric Order of the Garter and has been added in many British artifacts. .

I love it when Dad takes the twisty turny streets through Saddar instead of the usual route. There're always new sights to see, new buildings to wonder about, new places to add to my 'To Be Explored One Day' list. 😊

I was taken aback when I saw this bus in Kolkata. Just with a few glimpses of this bus, I became lost in my childhood memories.
.
.
.
This bus reminded me of my school's bus - "S-14/15" wherein I spent 10% of my 20 years of life on Earth. This is that bus guys, wherein I had good time with my bus buddies. This bus showed me everything - Bullying, Fights, different kind of Abuses, Sexism. This bus was witness to everything I went through in school. Whenever I used to feel sad, this bus was haven for me and brought me relief after day's study. .
.
.
Alas, when I reached class 9th, these buses became extinct in Delhi. .
.
.
Thank you Kolkata for reminding me of my long forgotten childhood.

Indian art during British - - - After their arrival in India, the British puzzled the local artists. This bemusement resulted in some bizarre images, including a minor genre of paintings. Though images of Europeans were popular in 18th century Mewar, but the Indian artists who drew these subjects were not always kind to them. This painter was downright devilish. On the left, two long-nosed, leering men huddle together, one wearing an English-style wig and smoking a pipe. A child and a dog seem, oddly, to be climbing up the second man, who has lost both his wig and his dignity. The bony figure on the right seems to be giving a tremendous shriek through his toothy mouth; a snake has wound around his neck and bites his chin! Miniature animals prowl and play on the carpet-but are they alive or are they woven into the design? The scene is a fantastic concoction of elements copied from different European sources, quite possibly including the satirical engravings of the English artist William Hogarth.

A European Concoction, c 1760. #artsoullifemagazine #artmagazine #art #britishera #mewar #williamhogarth
