Avijit's mind and thoughts have journeyed through various phases in time. He believes that though his physical being may be static in time, his mind is free to take a flight whenever and wherever he wants. His search for his ultimate truth is never ending.

In 2007 he worked on the concept of 'Lavanya' where his main focus was women in different forms. He has gone beyond the physical appearance of a woman in his hunt for her inner beauty - her soul. The modes and nuances in sensuality, the reading of which as expressed by Avijit Dutta, are embedded in the Indian notions of Lavanya. Lavanya emerges from the 'Shadanga' or the six limbs of Indian art. 'Shadanga' lays a prominence on the basic structure or language of a work of art, written in consonance with the liturgical texts. Through his 'Lavanya' series he pays respect to the multiple facets of a woman, be it mother, wife or lover. In the same year his 'Journey of Temptation' was born followed by his 'Timeless Passage' series. His 2009 series on Indian Sadhus called 'We Rise or We Fall' was the result of extensive research on the simple austere lifestyle of the holy men of India.
