Mein Aur Mere Andar translates into ‘I and Inside Me’, which in Jai Zharotia’s case, is an exact pointer to a big body of his work. Throughout his career, his quest remained to explore the duality of existence, to process the reality which is not exactly what it appears. In this case, this quest makes the artist turn the subject inwards and look at what lies inside: is it different from what is portrayed outside? From what appears in the artwork, the veneer is different from the core. In this work, Zharotia emphasised the duality without passing judgment on the right or wrong of it.
