Paint splattered!!

That black kurta speaks of the pain I endured. This next one I hope to be of healing. This olive green kurta is also about five years old now. It has seen me through many days and nights of painting. Every splatter is a subconscious mark or gesture of joy or frustration. There are deliberate […]

X marks the spot

Insert here… In an earlier post I mention this black kurta that could probably replace me at events. What probably cannot be stressed enough is just how much this kurta has seen and been through with me. It is almost a metaphor for my life and milestones in a way. For almost all of the […]
