Photographer's Note

MF Husain (aka Picasso of India) painted this picture at his favourite dhaba (restaurant) in Kolkata - Azad Hind Dhaba. Apparently, he would land in Kolkata and head straight to this eatery to have aloo parotha (potato bread) and kebabs. He liked this place, and as a token of appreciation painted Gaja Gamini on the wall itself. The owners of the dhaba have framed the wall. A painting this size of MFH is usually worth upwards of $150,000!
