"Though I've been traditional in my life as well as in my artistic expression, I am open to the changes of our times. Like most Indians, I am part ancient and part very modem. We are great assimilators of inputs and ideas, not to speak of foreign invasions and cultures. If I had in any way felt that my particular vision, or that the geometry, colour, form, tone and space values that I have built up over 50 years of intensive work, were in any way being compromised by the computer, I would have rejected the experience outright.

On the contrary it helped crystalize my conceptions, and opened up new dimensions of expressiveness that would not have been possible ordinarily."
