Mrs. Shobhaa De described him as, “A true renaissance figure… So much larger than life”. Okay! Sure is, however, can one justify some of his paintings regarding our Hindu religion? Heck NO. To tell you the truth, I knew him as a very famous painter and the guy who directed ‘Gaja Gamini’ with Madhuri Dixit. That’s it! I lacked the knowledge on his nude paintings of many Hindu Goddesses and his infatuation towards women. Just recently I came across those paintings and I was jolted by this man’s filthy mind. His mind drooled out his lust and paintings portrayed the disgusted thoughts towards our Hindu Goddesses.
Not too surprised to read about his non-bailable warrant after the obscenity of our religion. Glad he lived in exile outside India. It’s bewildering to see how Hindu’s have become a punching bag in the society. Had it been a portrait of other religion, a chaos and a bigger hoopla would’ve occurred. I’m dissatisfied by many who are actually supporting this insulting act. And to tell you the truth, it seems as if only the elite class is in favor of these paintings. If MFH was a true Indian, he would’ve understood the most sensitive part of Indians is their religion. However, the old man only belonged to the high class society. Our socialites do not feel offended simply because they believe in ‘going with the flow’ instead of walking alone!
