Relation ...Relation with the self ...Relation with surrounding ...Relation with nature ...Relation with everyone and so on..on..&..on..... memories... and emotions !

Mainly my paintings travel in this world at the same time freaking-out.

Words never die whatever we say it remains in the air & universe in the form of sound waves forever. So my paintings.

First human on earth, first spoken word from him, whatever they are, are they alive in the universe till now here or there or somewhere ? Can we hear those words as they were spoken in the past ?

This thought, that million and billions of people, whatever they spoke years ago, all those words are floating around in the air...simply...simply this thought excites me like anything. I strongly believe that these words can be found everywhere around us; in dupatta of a girl, in the clothes we wear, on our bodies or randomly floating in the air....

So in my paintings words are appearing most of the time anywhere. Every time I paint, they come more and more from no-where or from everywhere..."
