This is one of the bas relief seen at the entrance of New India Assurance building along M. G. Road in the Fort neighbourhood of Mumbai. These larger-than-life relief work have been created by sculptor N G Pansare. Here you notice, "industrial labour with looms and wheels (pictured here), farmers with bales and winnows, and common village professions and chores appear in a simplified gigantism in an attempt to connect the two Indias that were poised to diverge into their respective destines.
