The big russia trip

Here are sketches from the three week long Russia trip. The Indo- Russian friendship during the cold war introduced me to The USSR. The country with funny mirrored letters. We grew up reading books from MIR publication, from the detailed discription of Russian life and culture in  Maxim Gorky's "Childhood" , to the introductiuon to the Space programme through "Sputnik" Magazine. Apart from looking for some signs of the communist past and the love for Art from the Soviet era  I didn't have much of a plan and it was nice to let  it unfiold itself in the three weeks I spent there.
