Thirst of a Minstrel: The Life and Times of Ganesh Pyne
Thirst of a Minstrel: The Life and Times of Ganesh Pyne
Description
From the Jacket:

Ganesh Pyne is the subject of a raging controversy: Is he really a recluse who shuns the media, avoids the opening of his own exhibitions and withholds his paintings from international auction houses like Sotheby's and Christie's? Or is he just impossibly arrogant?

His detractors find his art out of sync with reality. Yet, the world regards him as one of the greatest painters of the day, and his works, covered by celebrities, sell at astronomical prices.

Sifting the truth from hype and mere concoction, Shiladitya Sarkar explores the mysteries behind the myth, the art behind the legend. And what he comes up with is an intriguing modern-day fairytale, featuring an artist who rose from rags and anonymity to riches and fame, but continues to spurn the crown he has earned through a lifetime of tribulations.

About the Author:

Born in 1969, Shiladitya Sarkar is the graduate of Presidency College, Kolkata. Having completed a Master's degree in Political Science, he worked as a journalist, contributing investigative and feature articles, first as staff of Indian Express and later, as commissioned writer for different publications including The Times of India and the Telegraph.

He currently writes on contemporary painting in the premiere magazine, Art India.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
