This mural links to the historical roots of Delhi, dating back to the Pandava’s, who after losing a game of dice were exiled to Khandavaprastha – The City of Ruins. Krishna’s magic turned Khandavaprastha into Indraprastha – The City of Gods. The dead dahlias represent Delhi as a city of magic which is now crumbling apart, going back into a state of ruins.
