The Kalahita Art Foundation is organising an exhibition of paintings by Masuram Ravikanth, from 16th to 30th November. A collection of more than 50 works is on display.
The series has been titled Transversing - Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow, and in it, the artist tries to explain a changing sequence of events and occurrences with the help of a conventional electric filament bulb.

Some of his creations are based on the Ramayana and the Chitra Kathas.
