'Well-known as the founder of Gallery Chemould, Kekoo Gandhy participated in the modern art movement for fully twenty years before opening his gallery in 1963. As a framer and active member of the art scene, Kekoo Gandhy witnessed and contributed to the rise of the Progressive Artists' Group and to the initial promotion of Indian modern art on the international stage.'

'This book collects his stories, filled with fascinating details of the personalities and hopes of Bombay in the first years after Indian Independence, and preserves both their charm and their immense documentary value for the history of art.' - extracted from the inside flap of the book.
