MANGALORE: It is believed that the eyes are the windows to our souls.

The paintings of Pradeep Das of Bhubaneshwar take wings from this belief. Mr. Das is one of the eight artists whose paintings are being exhibited in the city’s Akhter’s Art Gallery.

Mr. Das’s works speak of the pre-occupation of the mind and its reflection in our eyes.
