Antima Gangwar

‘Indian Sitar’

The picture shows the neck of a 19-string traditional Vilayat Khan sitar. The parts in composition are ‘mogara’, the two posts that raise the strings above the neck, and ‘parda’, the wire frets on the sitar. The name ‘mogara’ literally means ‘jasmine’, because the posts somewhat resemble the blossom of the mogara. These posts are placed in holes that are drilled in the side of the neck of the sitar.

Antima Gangwar was born in Uttar Pradesh, India in 1981. She has been living in New Delhi since 2000. Although a software developer by profession, she is passionate about abstract and fine-art photography.
