volume 7 | issue 1

Reaching the twenty-fifth issue is a kind of a landmark in the journey of a professional publication and we are happy to have arrived with the unstinting support of our readers. To mark this anniversary of the Journal, various thoughts passed through our minds over the last twelve months, and we consulted our professional colleagues and friends.

With the objective of looking at the larger landscape with fresh eyes, we went ahead with the idea of inviting personalities from visual arts, music, and of course landscape architects and architects to write on the theme of INDIAN LANDSCAPES: IMAGES AND PERCEPTIONS.

Our minds are conditioned to convert our observations and experiences in a complex set of thinking with the general objective of rationalizing the world around us. In doing so, we often lose sight of the simple things in life...the thrill of a drenching rain shower, walking through the soft grass of a park, the sights and sounds of birds in the evenings, the melody of a flute from an unexpected direction..

The views expressed by the our contributors about their perceptions and experiences of Indian landscapes is a refreshing change for us from the usual ground realities. They write about their sensitivity, experiences, images and dreams…about nature, landscapes and life in general and how these link with their work.
