As the preview of the seventh edition of India Art Fair wound down last Thursday, I noticed Singh stamping her books. A large tray held dozens of stamps. A young man, seated in front of her, watched her.
It’s fitting that actress Deepti Naval would inaugurate a photo exhibition of India’s mountains.
Her love for the wilderness is well known. Since the 1980s, Amritsar-born Naval has taken many trips to the hills of northern India, mostly on trekking expeditions. It’s an interest she inherited from her parents, she said. Her mother, a painter, is a nature lover and her late father, a teacher and linguist, was an adventurer.
