Ganatri, is about the quest of an ‘Amdavadi’ to become an entrepreneur and his strong calculations for money. Fascinated with the details of currency notes, Prajapati here has graphically presented an old 100 - rupee note, incorporating elements that impart the strong Amdavadi vibes. Firstly, right above the graphic of the note, is an outline drawing of the iconic Ellis Bridge, the revolving Patang Hotel, a faint graphic of the textile mill tower (top left). Secondly certain numbers are embossed on the note, which is actually the birth date of Ahmedabad. Lastly the eye catching logo of State Bank of India, right above the numbers, is designed by students of National Institute Design of India and is the depiction of the aesthetical sense and the financial inclination of the people of Ahmedabad.
