Buddhanagar, Govandi

Statues of Mumbai: Idol maker.

Not just Ramayana (Journey of Rama). In Mumbai, the story that people listen to now are Buddhayana, Shivayana and Bhimayana.  What they hear takes the form of these smaller statues that make it to community spaces, they become ghetto markers, garlanded in schools, gyms, and a proud place in drawing cum dining cun kitchen cum bedrooms of proud people.
