Incredible !ndia

1. Name the sculptor. He is perhaps the only of his kind in India. Certainly the only well known one. He is unique in the sense that all his sculptures are made from a certain material.
Source: From the artist's website
Answer: Sudarshan Patnaik, Sand Sculptor

2. Bengali writer, Uttam Ghosh started his writing career with smut. Amongst his best sellers are Nishiddha Swad [Forbidden Taste] and Bedside Stories. His next project was a two-volume translation of Vivekananda’s English writings. He was threatened with a lawsuit in 2005 for a story he weaved around the life of Kolkata boy Jhontu. Why?

Answer:
He wrote an illegal Harry Potter story - "Harry Potter Kolkataye"

3. Name the artist. The story goes that one night out of frustration he picked up a knife and started erasing his own art and thus invented a style of painting called scratch-painting which is painting by scraping off paints with knives and blades to get the desired image.

Answer: Rameshwar Broota. This painting is from his Man series - paintings of gorilla-like men.

4. Bharadwaja was meditating by a river when he saw a naked Apsara Ghritachi bathing. Seeing her thus, he ejaculated and collected the fluid in a pot. What resulted?

Answer: Dronacharya was born thus.

5. Muni Sharadwan had been celibate for a century, and was the Master of his Domain. But once he happened to be strolling along a river bank when he saw a naked nymph bathing. This unexpected sight unmanned him and he spent his seed into a clump of river-reed. Just a day later, two infants of unearthly splendour lay crying lustily in the bed of reeds. Name the two infants thus born.
Answer: Kripa and Kripi were the infants

1. Sudarshan Patnaik, Sand Sculptor is correct

2. Close enough. "Harry Potter Kolkataye" :) was about the exploits of Harry Potter in Kolkata not exactly a translation.
[If Uttam Singh had continued perhaps he would have penned a Harry Potter and the Deathly "Ki-Holos?" too]

3. Remains unanswered

4. Dronacharya was born, is correct.
5. Kripa and Kripi, is also correct. Incidentally, Kripi is Drona's wife.
