TSUNAMI 

 

A day after the tsunami devastated the eastern coast of India,I happen to go for a walk on the Chapora beach in Goa. I noticed hundreds of plastic and rubber slippers which were washed ashore by the waves.Though the tsunami did not affect the western coast, I could not help thinking that the slippers belonged to the victims of the great wave. 'Torii 'is the Japanese gate belonging to the Shinto tradition.It is supposed to be the gate between the physical and the spiritual world,between life and death. The Pyramid is created with bamboos. A form of the Torii gate is incorporated in it. The slippers I collected on the beach after the tsunami are placed inside the pyramid.
