Painting Your Heart πŸ˜πŸŽ¨

Believe in your unique vision… This I what I learn and relearn every time I work with my group at AADI, Hauz Khas.I bought some shells today and asked every member to select one and observe it carefully and make what came to their mind… Was so impressed by this artist 😊🎨… He persevered and sang through this assignment and what a stunning finished product πŸ‘ŒπŸ€—!#ArtatAADI #abilityanddisability #creativity #painting #penandpaper #blackandwhite #shesellsseashells

Accept and Celebrate all Differences

β€œWhen you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.”

When the Garden Speaks… πŸ˜Š

When the garden speaks… A gardener listens… 😊

I have collected rocks over the years. I place them in various formations every few weeks. This is where the birds come to feed and this is where I found that fallen flowers had been given a sweet perch by the maali Bhaiya.

Over the years I have found a stillness in most people who work with soil and mud and grass and saplings… They have a gentleness to them, a respect for all things fallen or growing,fast or slow. There’s a joy and pride in them when a sick plant finds its strength or a tree fruits for the first time. They laugh at the antics of squirrels and give right of passage to plump caterpillars, their ever-vigilant eyes, look for life every where so as not to harm any.

They spend their entire day, so close to nature that they become an integral part of it and imbibe from it, some of its greatest lessons… Patience, forbearance, gratitude, fortitude… love and acceptance… That is their religion, above all 😊

Hand-crafted Beauty

The Unseen and the Unheard

When craftsmen see
Nonexistent designs,
In the weft
and the weave

When the sculptor sees
In a block of stone
A hidden figure
Of flesh and bone

Notes intertwining
When a musician hears
That sound like music
Only to his ears

When an artist approaches
An empty page
And in it feels a
A bleak storm rage

When a poet
Goes behind her words
And grabs the feelings
Hitherto, unheard

That’s when we see
Humanity at its best
Seeking the unseen
Through their solitary quest… πŸ™πŸ’•
