Artist's Description

My model and senior friend Mr Shammi Kapoor, all set to pose for me as village sarpanch. A sarpanch is a democratically elected head of a village level statutory institution of local self-Government called the Gram (village) Panchayat in India and also in Pakistan. He, together with other elected Panches (members), constitute the Gram Panchayat.The Sarpanch is the focal point of contact between government officers and the village community. It is an elected position. Recently, there have been proposals to give Sarpanches small judicial powers under Panchayati Raj.
