Let me tell you a story about Jone the dog and his master Jotin from Manipur. Jotin has a special gift of connecting with animals specially with dogs. The most interesting thing Jone’s master did was the campaign to stop eating dog meat in Manipur. Jone would go to the local joints where dog meat is served and would do cute stunts saluting the customers as his master Jotin was hoping that the customers may change their mind of eating dog meat seeing such a cute lovable 💗dog — wow, what a beautiful idea and so courageous too! I was so inspired hearing this story of such passion, love and drive for dogs that I have to paint Jone. Missing pet dog and being eaten is one of the social issue in Manipur. My own old age nearly blind pet dog wasn’t spared either. Our locality people ate our dog!

Artist: Monica has always been interested in art as a child . She found painting to be very calming keeping her grounded and balanced. Art and painting provided the calm and inner strength during the intense grieving period during her father’s passing. She volunteered for Art Galleries, took art classes to enhance her understanding and skills of being an artist. She has pledged the funds raised from her paintings to projects of FindingTheVoices and support humane initiatives encountered as part of interviews covered in her talk show. She has raised funds for Palliative Care and is currently raising funds for children’s education. Please click here to get her art.
