Paul Cezanne [pronounced ‘sizaa(n)’] was arguably the most innovative and mysterious painter of all the impressionist. His works show early signs of geometric simplification of form which laid foundation for the various twentieth century movements in art. In the picture alongside you can notice cylindrical simplification of tree trunks, soothing serene color scheme and short emotional brush strokes making this uncomplicated painting extremely impressive.

Sound of Silence….

[Picture along side is one of the most expressive work of art, a painting by Edvard Munch (titled 'The Scream'। Need I say more!] I saw this man holding his cell-phone to his ears tightly। He seemed as if trying to listen to faint sounds. But he was holding it for so long, he may just be listening to silence. What does silence tell us? Silence talks to us about our own self. It only holds mirror to our own weird thoughts and ideas, which sound bizarre sometimes. It makes us look intelligent and thoughtful or perhaps only intelligent and thoughtful can listen to silence. It crystallizes our thoughts, tells us of our standing in space and time and in relation to world at large. Silence tells us so much only if we care to listen.

Silence is indeed deafening in Mumbai carnage context................
