The vastness of Santiniketan soon starts working on him, expanding his capacities to accommodate and appreciate the beauty that exists beyond his faith!

Koral writes columns covering artists from various disciplines of visual and performing arts with an aim to report more elaborately the source of their creative energies and the prejudices they have to battle both personally and professionally.
