It is also a visual record of the changes wrought by globalisation on local industry, aesthetics and lifestyles.
He points out that in Kumbakonam, houses in the agraharams used to have ornate wooden doors with coloured glass on top. As time went by the glass was replaced by heavily worked grills that were common in the Sixties and Seventies. Now the designs are more geometrical.
“Moreover, depending on the financial background of the inhabitants, the doors underwent many changes. Heavy wooden doors, blackened with lamp soot and bearing the imprints of vermillion smeared fingers were modernised with new-age single-panel doors in plywood and so on; glass came to be used extensively…On, the other hand if the owner of the hand fell on bad days, then some of the walls and doors were painted over with advertisements,” says Santhana Krishnan.
