Remembering Tyeb Mehta, Stree Shakti album cover
apt CD cover. I accompanied my painter mother Ila Pal to Tyeb uncles house, to request him for an appropriate painting.. Tyeb uncle asked me about my CD, appreciated my concept of a novel, all female band, heard & really enjoyed the music tracks. Then he simply went into his studio and brought out 4 prints from his Kali Series of paintings and asked me to take my pick!! I chose his Mahishasur painting from his Kali series! and he just smiled and gregariously gave it to me.. no fuss..
So I had the great honour of having a Tyeb Mehta painting as my CD inlay card design and on the body of my CD and my mother Ila Pal’s waiting on the front cover of my album ‘ Stree Shakti’!! Such is simplicity and greatness of extraordinary artists!!
