Lesser-Vision,

An untiring desire and determination to fight disabilities made Manohar Devadoss, a Madurai-based writer-cum-artist, launch his yet another book on his tryst with art work and artistic perspective, even though he has been struggling with diminishing vision due to a peculiar eye disease.

“It is a blessing that my books reconnect me with Madurai in an extraordinary way by reinforcing my affection and my connection with old institutions in the city,” said Manohar during the release of his seventh book ‘An Artist’s Perspective’. Manohar, has, in his previous books highlighted the historical, cultural and artistic beauty of Madurai through wonderful portraits. While speaking to Express, Manohar said, “It was my architect-cousin who gave me the idea after listening to my analysis on perspectives in 1970. It took me nearly  35 years down the lane to come up with the book.”

“None of the books came on the perspectives which I discussed with my cousin, however, they would help students learn geometry and arithmetic in an interesting way and  also the architects, he said.

Saying that all the other books which he had written was from his heart be it the ones on Madurai or the two books which he wrote about his wife who passed way in 2007 after being paralysed for months together due to an accident, he said he wrote this book from his mind.  

Briefing on a few passages from the book, Manohar said, “It narrates my boyhood days in Madurai and my connection with perspectives when I stumbled on different aspects of perspective which ultimately formed the foundation over the years to build edifices of my knowledge in perspective.”
