The Red Indian Finally Got Sold At The Antique Store For Rs 1200

I was fascinated with this fibreglass statue of the Rd Indian since the day she arrived at Aslam Bhais Antique shop at Bandra Bazar Road .

There was some sadness I felt that connected me with her she was in bad shape her elbow broken and there was no effort in restoring her .

So she stood defiantly facing the vagaries of Mumbai weather the heat humidity ..outside the store and I was the only one hoping she would get a home with some film set designer ,but each time I met the owners son he said nobody wanted to buy her ,,

I tried to poeticize the pain of this warrior damsel.. the last of the Mohicans ,, I am saying this more as a metaphor .. the little bit I know about Tribal Red Indian culture was comic books that always showed them as villains and the holier than thou cowboys as heroes ,, and the land belonged to these early tribes driven into wilderness ,,

I hardly know anything about their sartorial ancestry ,, it was no taught in school.. but I always remembered those profoundly…
