Jeganathan has been conducting studies on sounds and has discovered the points where sounds are produced in the body. Using this, he has done paintings to depict the sounds. For example, he says that the note “sa” starts from the chakra in the stomach and ascends upwards till it reaches the head. The colours used represent the points in the body and their dominant colours.

“Colour is all around us. Even our body has all the nine colours. Our blood is red, bones are white, veins are blue and bile is yellow and so on.”
