About the cover:
Designed by Abin Design Studio, the cover highlights the location of a temple-shrine for a community in the busy town of Bansberia in West Bengal. The design for this temple produces a certain kind of non-form — a simple and humble rectangular box, with two of its adjacent sides removed and partly converted into a jali. More importantly, the design of the temple responds to the idea of a neighbourhood. The temple-shrine here is meant to define a street corner, and in a way it articulates its presence very strongly within an urban fabric, making itself an urban artefact.
