Santati is a sequence that does not break, an infinite loop. Through his seamless, sleepless journey from Gandhi to Mahatma, this visionary radiated, imbibed and left behind messages in mindful living, messages bare in their truth, messages that move in the concentric ring of time, holding within them the power to overturn the world. From uniting a diverse country through non-violence to inspiring global leaders and instilling the resolve of tireless, detached action, he entered the veritable spirit of generations. Ablaze with a dream, charged with an electric intellect, carrying a mind and body deeply willing to suffer for Truth, Mahatma Gandhi is no more just a person, a philosophy, an idea. 150 years after his birth, he has merged with the soil to become a state of mind. To permeate this state of mind, exceptional artists and minds from their walks have come together for ’Santati’ to interpret their Gandhi
The exhibition is open to public from 3rd October till 15th November 2019 at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai
11 am to 6 pm – Tuesday to Friday
