Regardless of the general supposition of India similar to an unpredictable and fractured land, there is an astounding level of civilisation progression.Dynasties, cultural golden ages and periods of anarchy came and went.However, cultural exchanges and stain of colonialism remained forever.Anyway this central inquiry that and the amount we safeguard the social heritage of the past. Why there is no socio-social congruity in India? May be that is the bigger inquiry one can outline as opposed to constraining it into the Arikamadu site. What's more, Arikamedu is the best case for it. George Orwell says ' who control the past control the future and who control the present, control the past' and his perception is completely defended in this context.

By doing that the country may feel of dread for loosing their guaranteed social character and heritage. In any case, the logical inconsistency purposely and unwittingly we as a whole are compelled to carry the social inheritance of different culture

Keeping this thought as a primary concern, He tries to explore the idea of memory/antiquarianism through his work as a continuity of his art practice.
