Though born in Manipur, I haven’t seen much of the place. My parents didn’t allow me to go out for fear of being a part of the ongoing conflict. But I have this longingness to explore, experience and see the beautiful places. The beauty of Dzouko Valley and the lily stayed with me. I visualized a walk at Dzouko Valley. I am waiting for that day with the thought “Such beauty can only bring out the hidden love and compassion in a conflicted land”. Monica Ingudam, 26th March 2019
Artist: Monica has always been interested in art as a child but never thought it could be a path she could take. She picked up on painting here and there, found the process to be very calming and therapeutic to deal with the moods and waves of life. Art and painting provided the calm inner strength during the intense grieving period during her father’s passing. She volunteered for Art Galleries to be closer to Art, took art classes to enhance her understanding and skills of being an artist. Currently she is working on a series of oil paintings promoting the beauty of Manipur, in the belief that these paintings will connect people at a deeper level bringing out the hidden love and compassion, giving the strength to rise above conflict. She has pledged the funds raised from her paintings to projects of FindingTheVoices and support humane initiatives she has encountered as part of interviews covered in her talk show. Currently she is raising funds for Palliative Care Society, Imphal, Manipur.
