"I paint while I can, though I do not know why I paint. But I do not paint to impart happiness or celebrate the glory of man or the motherland or even to propitiate the dead, though I would like to be happy with the thought, if my work gives joy of introspection or relief from the prison-house of knowledge. I paint because I cannot keep away from it and because it takes me away from myself."

- J Swaminathan
