18/12/2011, Sunday : 1 MINUTE CARICATURES of three famous people in Fort Kochi area in Kerala were done at the Art gallery owned by my artist friend Dinesh Shenoy whose and talented young sculptor Sathish's works were on display there.

1. NP Ramaswamy, the AIR A-Graded vocalist. The man whom I had listened to for scores of hours during my school-college days through the All India Radio. He was taller than I expected.

2. K.N. Sathyapalan, former Secretary, Kerala Lalitha Kala Academy. Now in the thick of controversy surrounding the Kochi- Muziris Biennale, where names of artists Bose Krishnamachary and Riaz Komu, bureaucrat Dr.V.Venu and former minister M.A. Baby are doing the rounds.

3. Desmond Rebeiro, the freebird, vinoba bhave-lookalike artist with matted hair, who owns a neat one room art gallery in one of the main streets in Fort Kochi, where he sleeps in the night in a hammock ! He should be one of the most prolific and hard selling artists in Fort Kochi area !

Writer KN Shaji, once a pioneer of little magazines (Samkramanam et al)
helps Desmond to steady the paper
