[Source - Wiki] Vālmīki was going to the river Ganges for his daily ablutions. A disciple by the name Bharadvāja was carrying his clothes. On the way, they came across the Tamasa Stream. Looking at the stream, Vālmīki said to his disciple, "Look, how clear is this water, like the mind of a good man! I will bathe here today." When he was looking for a suitable place to step into the stream, he saw a crane couple mating. Vālmīki felt very pleased on seeing the happy birds. Suddenly, hit by an arrow, the male bird died on the spot. Filled by sorrow, its mate screamed in agony and died of shock. Vālmīki's heart melted at this pitiful sight. He looked around to find out who had shot the bird. He saw a hunter with a bow and arrows, nearby. Vālmīki became very angry. His lips opened and he cried out, mā niṣāda pratiṣṭhāṁ tvamagamaḥ śāśvatīḥ samāḥ yat krauńcamithunādekam avadhīḥ kāmamohitam You will find no rest for the long years of Eternity For you killed a bird in love and unsuspecting

Dusk draws in on an autumn evening. A crescent moon adorns the silent sky that reflects the red hue of the landscape below. A bird sits on a treetop as a north star shines above. The trees are adorned with golden yellow dry leaves that perhaps rustle in the evening breeze. It is a study of a common yet contemplative moment of a day. The dusk of a day is significant in the same scale as the dusk of ones mortal existence.

His works are often characterized by their geometrical complexity, symmetry and symbolism. Panchugopal Dutta has held several one man solo exhibitions at the Academy of Fine Arts, Calcutta in the years 1974, 1976, 1978 and 1991. Although noted as one of the stalwarts, Panchugopal Dutta has lived a self effacing life, staying out of the spotlight and attention. In 2009, when funds were required for his hospitalization, a vast collection of his paintings spanning four decades was discovered in his residence which were never sold or commercialized. At the initiative of some of his ex-students, this collection was for the first time cataloged and made available for people to see and collect.
