Our world


The 'Flying Bus' an art installation in BKC by Sudarshan Shetty.
Ref Wikipedia Installed on the grounds of Maker Maxity in Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai the Flying Bus is a replica of a 1970s double-decker bus with two stainless steel wings attached on either side. The bus is positioned as if poised to take off. The work draws on themes of immigration, transit and living on the edge. A plaque beside the Bus states “Sometimes when we travel we forget who we are," The Flying Bus is arguably India's most significant public art project
