Parmeshwar Godrej's Art Affair

In 2005, Parmeshwar Godrej had set up an art and cinema museum in Hyderabad. And if all goes according to her plans, there could well be another museum in the offing in Vikhroli. This diarist has learnt that Godrej and her son Pirojsha, are planning to use the family's vast reserves of land in the suburbs for a similar project.

The idea was perhaps implanted by visiting Japanese architect Tadao Ando, who compared the mangroves to New York`s Central Park. The project, once complete, will house an urban art gallery and library that will archive contemporary art with a nod to nature conservation. The complex will make judicious use of the property, which is turning into a major hub with several residential projects and commercial projects on the anvil.
