My submission for this amazing international cake collaboration brought together by Tina Scott Parashar -Global Sugar Artists Network – is about Bollywood: The story of India.
India is just as unique as it is diverse. So much so that I have often thought: what is it that binds us? The answer came to me when I heard a tribal village girl sing a Bollywood number in the remote corner eastern hill state of Meghalaya. Of course, it had to be Bollywood! Nothing else binds this diverse country as much as the movies! This piece showcases three iconic films – Mughal-e-Azam, Guide, and Mera Naam Joker. For the first two I showcased the costumes and dance forms through its vibrant posters. For Mera Naam Joker I have made a hoarding behind which stands the iconic ‘Joker’ with the lyrics – Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan (We’ll live here, we’ll die here). Finally, the frames for the posters were inspired by Rajasthani _jharokas _(enclosed balconies) with their intricate carvings.
