Over the last year, I have been working on a clutch of heritage interpretation projects for the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Some of these were at some megalithic sites in north Karnataka, some at sites that have Ashokan inscriptions, and a recent set that I just finished was in Bhatkal and Mirjan in North Kanara. Here are pictures of some of the signs. Concept, research and writing by yours truly. Illustration and design by two gifted young women, Sneha Prasad and Nikita Jain.
At the Ashokan edict site at Gavimath. That's a portrait of Ashoka there!
Apart from random thoughts and jottings, I use this blog to put up some of my writing, both what has been published and what has not. Please do not reprint or reproduce material from here without acknowledging both the publication and the author (i.e., me).
