And now back to AMRUTA … !! Ms OVER ENTHU.. is here !!!

Twinny you really are very mean … Calling ME names…

And of all the days … Today …

when I have gone into the in-depth history of ”a name”…The name OCULUS!!!

Whaaaatt??? Are you ok  Amruta ??!

Yes Twinny …The other day I was sitting in the waiting room of Dr RANJIT MUKHERJEEs ophthal clinic … OCULUS..and I pondered and pondered … And started Tracing the history of the name

OCULUS!!

How APT is it….Let me show you …

Huh!!Who can stop you Amruta… Might as well go ahead!
The word OCULUS is from the Latin word for ‘ eye’.. And
Latin , you may be aware originated in 600 BC… Yes ,before Christ !!!

The word is that old !

Latin continued to be spoken , written in , especially by scholars right till 600 AD … Then its usage reduced a bit only to come back in the Renaissance …15 th century … revived as a language like everything else in the Renaissance…and used right till 1960 … When the pope decided … Enough is enough … No more Latin!!

But I still use it…!

”Carpe diem !”

Seize the day!!!



Now In 27 BC the worlds hugest ,most spectacular unsupported dome was constructed in Rome …atop a temple with 16 colonnades .. The size of half a football field…Finished only in 123 AD… By Agrippa …. The PANTHEON is an astounding construction courageously made without the use of steel … Only concrete … Surviving nearly 2000 years..,A temple built to honour the Gods …
From a 7.8 metre diametered opening or OCULUS at the top showers in the LIGHT of the GODS!!

Look !Twinny look…!!


Now cut to the period from 1296 AD to 1436.AD… Pre Renaissance …this was when the DUOMO with its ‘Open to the sky’ ‘OCULUS’ was constructed in Florence !!!
Here it is … The most beautiful frescoed cathedral with beautiful paintings of Christ and Judgement day ….. Lit up through the LIGHT WELL at the top ….This cupola would never have been completed had it not been for

the genius of a hot tempered timepiece maker ( he also invented the modern alarm clock )

BERTOLUCCHI !


Hey amruta what’s the point.?.. Sabra Ka phal meetha hai naari…..or so my great friend says….Relax Twinny !!!

Come on …see the oculus of the Duomo!!


Renaissance was also the time when Raphael .. Painted the beautiful ‘Madonna in the meadows’ .. Sheilding her two children Jesus and John from the outside world ….
 Amrutaaaa?…What’s the connection ..??


You will soon see Twinny ….hold your horses !!!

Cut to 1951 , post world war 2 ….

Salvador Dalis painting … ‘Exploding Raphaelesque head’


This showed the Madonna head… Strewn with fragmented heads and figures ( post the Nagasaki Hiroshima atomic bombing )… Yet with tender peaceful expression

..Superimposed Over the dome of the PANTHEON…

Invoking the blessings of the gods through the OCULUS at the top of the skull…… Phew !!!

The ‘moustache ‘ man sure outdid himself!!

For gods sake … Concentrate Twinny!!

Dali drew from art in the Renaissance which found inspiration in the Pantheon from the early ages…

… which drew from the Latin …eye or OCULUS…

Goodness gracious me!!!Dr Ranjits clinic name OCULUS dates back to antiquity …,

Simply AMAZING!!!!!

Light from without

For light within…..

Wow!!!!
Oh my gosh Amruta !

I fear You have gone totally mad……!

Art has bombarded your entire head ..!!!!
