To create is to live. And to live is to create.
That is the magic of the Arts.
You don’t need to be a celebrity; you need to be a celebrator of life.
- One of my most cherished moments early on in my journey was my talk ‘heART of the Matter’ at the prestigious TEDx platform, 2014
- Being a recipient of the Millennium Alliance Grant for the project Kala Samavesh -Inclusion and Education of Disabilities has allowed me to take my work to organisations across the country.
- I have been awarded as one among the 50 Most Impactful Social Innovators (Global Listing) by the World CSR Congress and Awards in 2016.
- As one among two artists to be awarded for the ‘Art in Education Program’ by the India Foundation for the Arts I was able to take my work to children in government schools as well.
Waves lapping on the shore.
Skies on fire at sunset.
Old men dancing on the streets.
Paradox and possibility.
Sense and sensibility.
Cold logic and half truth.
Final steps and first impressions.
Fools and fine intelligence.
Chaos and clean horizons.
Vague notions and concrete certainty.
Optimism in the face of adversity.
I’m alive, I believe in everything
I’m alive, I believe in it all.
