Four Photographs from Words on Water in Durban

Spend time with the Indian participants of this year’s Words on Water festival – as I’ve had the privilege to do this week, during the festival’s Durban leg – and you find yourself bedazzled by their intellectual ferocity, lifted by their wit and wisdom.

Here are three photographs from the festival, followed by a watercolour sketch done with the assistance of Photoshop:

    Superb, as always, Victor, and that "watercolour" is exceptional. Ohhh, you have met my hero, Ramachandra Guha... I have the hugest crush on the man.
