Expressions of celebration, togetherness, festivity, joy and even sad occasions are always full of colour in India. This gathering is at a pre-marriage ceremony in a lower income group in the village. Sen believes that even if they may be economically deprived, when people get together for any social event, their natural instinct is to be very colourful and hospitable. All the women here are carrying bright graceful dignity. So a traditional marriage becomes like a dazzling colour festival. Being of Indian origin, Sen has inherited this colour code which he generously and regularly applies in his paintings.
