Photographer's Note

Zoo is now a controversial subject. The ethical basis for keeping wild animals in captivity is being widely debated. Some believe in intrinsic right to liberty of animals and argue that zoo is an outdated concept. However, others believe that zoos have education value as well as conservation aspect.

When I visited the zoo in Kolkata, my initial focus was on the animal. But when, I saw the cages and the animals, I seriously started doubting the educational angle of zoo. In fact, it was repulsive. When I wanted to post this in TE, I was wondering about the category under which this could be posted. I decided upon architecture- rather a harsh architecture.
