Ranked 133 on the ‘Artery Top 500 Works’ is ‘Numbers’ by Rameshwar Broota.
This work marks our earliest introduction to his ‘Man’ series, as the artist was making his passage forward from the ‘Ape’ series of the 1970s. Though depicting 3 male figures, Broota has them retain the heaviness of the primates they have evolved from. With the thuggish appearance of identically cloned goons, the three figures sport numbered chests that are seemingly their only form of identification - a formative artistic comment on man’s existential angst, a constant theme that would occupy a central position in Broota's practice for the following two decades.
This subject also marked the onset of a new method for Broota: that of using a blade to scrape sections of paint from the canvas to reveal the composition.

#BodyOfStories#Inspiration : J. Howard Miller's #WeCanDoIt poster.
@dillybilly from Delhi shares her story. "I have been sexually active since the age of 21. Since then I have had lots of sex with lots of different people; 95% of my encounters have been explicitly consensual. The other 5 % is a murky grey area of not enough assertion. I think of myself as a body positive, sexually healthy person. While in college, I used to engage in risky behaviour. Since then, I have insisted on condoms with a vehemence, every single time. Imagine my horror when I awoke one morning to a positive preg test.
My surgical MTP was smooth; I found a great gynaec who asked all the right questions and never judged. But this story is not about that. After my abortion, I found that my interest in sex waned considerably; I was constantly scared of getting pregnant again and began struggling with body image. These were some of the reasons that led to the end of a wonderful relationship.
After doing considerable research, I decided to get a Copper-T as a more reliable means of birth control since I refused to get on any hormonal medication (I struggle with PCOS as well). I was scared about many things - Will it hurt? What if it gets lost inside? What if it perforates my uterus? What happens if I go to the gym and do a strenuous workout? Will sex feel the same? She was happy to allay my fears, although she couldn't fathom why I wanted to do this even though I was single (eye-roll). (1/2)
Today, the airport is full of people from a certain city, gathering at ticket counters almost like a huge clan traveling together, returning home from their respective holidays. While I shall not comment on the multiple other observations right now but, spotting this gent across my seat makes me want to at least note this one observation. 😄 Find this quite cute and funny. There is literally no one around but, then better safe than sorry. #funny#airportscenes#people#quirks#india
