The Lost Splendour, is an amalgamation of the sights that were reminiscent of Sopariwala’s childhood. He grew up with the iconic textile mills in his surroundings; hence a lot of memories linger, like playing in mill compounds with his friends, watching the workers, machines, chimneys, etc. To him painting such a sight is taking a road down the memory lane and thus considers this period as a Golden Era of Ahmedabad which doesn’t seem to return. Also with the textile mills, there came a boom in the textile market of Ahmedabad, and is symbolic of its glory. The title, ‘The Lost Splendour’ depicts how urbanization and industrialization took away that splendour.
