Mauritius in Paintings: Its Vibrant Colors & Culture Splashed on Canvas


I never did make it to Mauritius. Despite an any-time invite by my architect friend Soutrik Das, who lived and worked there for many years. The closest I got to seeing the island was through his amazing artwork. Of which, I would like to give you all a sneak-peek here. For a more up close and personal look, you may want to visit the Experimental Art Gallery at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. For those who survive the imminent end of the world, he will be showing solo between December 23rd-30th. 2012.

Puneetinder Kaur Sidhu, travel enthusiast and the author of Adrift: A junket junkie in Europe is the youngest of four siblings born into an aristocratic family of Punjab. Dogged in her resistance to conform, and with parental pressure easing sufficiently over the years, she had plenty of freedom of choice. And she chose travel.

She was born in Shimla, and spent her formative years at their home, Windsor Terrace, in Kasumpti while schooling at Convent of Jesus & Mary, Chelsea. The irrepressible wanderlust in her found her changing vocations midstream and she joined Singapore International Airlines to give wing to her passion. She has travelled extensively in Asia, North America, Australia, Europe, South Africa and SE Asia; simultaneously exploring the charms within India.

When she is not travelling, she is writing about it. Over the past decade or so, she has created an impressive writing repertoire for herself: as a columnist with Hindustan Times, as a book reviewer for The Tribune and as a contributor to travel magazines in India and overseas. Her work-in-progress, the documenting of colonial heritage along the Old Hindustan-Tibet Road, is an outcome of her long-standing romance with the Himalayas.
