Shyamal Shodhan is a writer who has been writing for 20 years. He has had numerous poems and fiction stories published. He is an avid fan of cinema which uses his art to preach love.
For Abhivyakti, he is turning himself into his artwork. Over a finite span of the festival, Shyamal will be taking refuge at the venue, turning a little space designated under the banyan tree into his house. You might find him there with just a table, chair and tent. By becoming part of the venue, he is turning the festival into his muse. If he feels like it, he might strike up a conversation with you or share his poetry. Or you may find him reciting his poems to the tree if no one is looking.
