The set for the Sahana song was extremely challenging. Shankar wanted something different for the song. I suggested creating a crystal like set in glass.
Earlier I used the glass concept for a symposium in Japan in 1992. I had depicted four seasons in the set (actually I proposed three concepts -- a traditional Japanese house, a contemporary house and a futuristic house). They chose the futuristic concept with four seasons in it.
When Shankar told me about Sahana lyrics, which talk of seasons, I told him about what I did in Japan. I decided to have a glass dome depicting four seasons. But Shankar was specific, saying he wanted the desert and the flowers look. So, we decided to have desert on one side and rocks, waterfalls and flowers on the other.
